Admittedly, we don’t tend to feature motorcycle-related news pieces here as often as one might prefer us to. However, a minute-long trailer recently released by MV Agusta has caught our attention thanks to a very special guest featured in it. Formula One fans will instantly recognise him as a certain double world champion currently racing for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team – yes, it’s Lewis Hamilton.

In said trailer, MV Agusta has teased what the it calls the Lewis Hamilton Dragster RR. While the entire motorcycle itself is obscured from view, glimpses here and there help reveal that it is based on the MV Agusta Brutale 800. The limited edition motorcycle was designed in conjunction with the F1 driver and is said to be part “of an on-going collaborative process between the F1 World Champion and the MV Agusta Team.”

Exact figures regarding the total build number remain unknown for now but what we do know is that the Lewis Hamilton Dragster RR will feature plenty of red anodised bits and bobs along with Borrani wheels. Elsewhere, the number 44 is also to be seen on said motorcycle – the same number was adopted by Hamilton for his F1 racer as it is the same figure that adorned his race kart from his formative years as a race driver.

For those wondering on the MV Agusta-Lewis Hamilton tie-up, do keep in mind that Mercedes-AMG owns a 25% stake in the fabled Italian motorcycle manufacturer. The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is powered by an 800 cc three-cylinder engine with a total of 125 hp and 81 Nm of torque. Top speed is rated at 245 km/h.
