OUT OF THE BOX
The design of the new Dragster has remained faithful to that “ outside the box ” Some years ’90. This scooter features a steel tube trellis frame supplemented by die-cast aluminum plates and the patented Independent Steering System (ISS), equipped with a new single-sided forged aluminum.
The scooter will feature liquid-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder engines of 125 And 200 cc which provide almost 10 kW (13 CV ) in the displacement of 125 cc and 13 kW (18 CV) in that from 200 cc. Both units are Euro5 approved . To give further character to this scooter, the Power Parts line was created to increase power and performance thanks to the collaboration between Italjet and specialized companies of the caliber of Akrapovič, Malossi, Brembo and Ohlins.
Akrapovič , in particular, made two tailpipes, one approved for road use, the other in the Racing version. Both will be available from February 2022. Malossi, on the other hand, has developed a kit to improve the performance of the centrifugal clutch both of the engine 125 cc, both of 200 cc. The kits will be available from February 2022. A kit of the thermal / electronic parts for Racing use is also under development.
Brembo will supply Racing brake levers and master cylinders, and Ohlins, in collaboration with Andreani Group, a set of suspension. Finally, a series of carbon accessories developed directly by Italjet will be available. The new scooter is available in the colors Red, Yellow and Black with prices starting from 5. 499 euro for the version 125 cc and 5. 799 euro for that from 200 cc.
The new Dragster will also be electric. To see it on the road it will not be necessary to wait long since it will debut in the second half of 2022 . It will be called Dragster # e 01 Electric and it shouldn’t renounce to always offer good performances since the manufacturer says that he will be able to count on 12 kW of maximum power (6 kW of rated power).
No mention, for the moment, on battery, autonomy and price. Surely we will know much more over the next few months.
