focusing on dedicated collectors and racing enthusiasts, MV agusta presented at EICMA 2015 a limited edition ‘dragster RR LH44’ heavily influenced by 2015 formula one world champion lewis hamilton. the truly exclusive machine features a highly detailed contribution with the mercedes AMG petronas driver and the designers at MV agusta with over fifty facets that make the custom motorcycle stand out from the standard ‘dragster RR’. working closely with the research center at MV agusta, lewis ensured that bike specifications and performance perfectly matched his requirements, from concept to the hand-assembled production.

like the standard ‘dragster’ the engine is a three cylinder power unit that unleashes 140 hp at 13,100 rpm. changes have been made to the electronic injection, which has an advanced six injector system and a reshaped fuel tank interior that provides the necessary space and keeps everything hidden from view. the graphics from hamilton’s helmet set the tone for the color scheme of the motorcycle, where it features a white color scheme and the panther logo, which was also sewn into the quilt finished saddle. the three-time world champion’s number 44 also makes an appearance on the exhaust manifolds and gas tank. the MV agusta lewis hamilton ‘dragster RR LH44’ will be limited to only 244 bikes. check out more designboom’s coverage of 2015 EICMA here.
