Pirelli Dragster arrives in Scotland

Pleasant phone call from Cupar Motorcycles yesterday informing me my bike had arrived safe and well, and they asked if I would like to be present for the opening of the crate.

Some pics taken and the bike goes into workshop today for preparation and tyre change prior to hand over. I also agreed Cupar Motorcycles could display the bike for a few days prior to delivery

Here are some pics

, full set of pics posted on facebook mv agusta owners uk page.

Wow! I feel like driving to Scotland just to see it!

Congrats, and I hope you get a few good riding days in after its 'exhibition'!

There was one at my local dealer, and I think that is a really good looking bike.

Just curious....why are you changing the tyres ???? Don't like the Pirellis...going to Dunlops???

For the picture rotation issue, those were probably shot with an Apple product. They save in the original orientation of the shot. You have to open them and then save them in the correct orientation as a jpeg.

It's fairly simple.

softer rubber track/road combined
As an additional exclusive option, Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres with colored sides, respectively with yellow or blue stripes, depending on the version to which they are combined are also available.
