New Dragster in the garage.

Hello Everybody,

Last night I picked up my Red/Black Dragster 800RR. All I can say is wow. I haven't really had the opportunity to stretch her legs yet but it's been great fun to ride. I was also lucky enough to get it with the Hydro Tre exhaust fitted in black. Tonight I removed the baffles and then took it for a brief ride. Awesome.



Here's a pic of a fat bloke (me) sitting on it before leaving the dealer. Hope the link works, haven't tried to do this from an iPad before. I will post more pictures as I get going doing stuff, I think almost everybody has seen a stock Dragster lol

Congratulations mate. Best bike ever!

I cant see the pic, but that might be me.

Also, I never tire of looking at any MV. It's nice to see it in different surroundings and locations around the world

Enjoy it mate

Just fixed up the picture, just needed to use a different PC. Here is a picture of the exhaust. It is a HP Corse Hydro Tre.

CHD and CHD like this.

Thanks for posting pictures Graham. I maintain that the guy behind has marginally better taste in motorcycles than you but you're looking good

Hydro Tre looks great in black, what's the surface finish? Bound to be high quality and goes nicely with the 2017 black engine colour but my worry would be durability and keeping it looking reasonably clean. Black finish and heat bakes the dirt it from my experience so it winds up looking less than black, more brown/grey. However, HP Corse might be using some decent coating process that prevents this happening. That's why I came home with the regular stainless version yesterday. My bike's filthy dirty after the last couple of days and getting a clean in the next hour or two. Will be posting pictures of my exhaust shortly.

Sound is awesome, especially on the overrun.

It's a matt surface finish but I don't know how they have put it on. Pulling the baffles out required some care as the surface could be easily marked if you were not careful. Time will tell how long it will last.
