Hero MotoCorp has revealed that its sales on the day Dhanteras surpassed the two lakh mark, which has helped it maintain a clear lead over its arch rival, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI).

MV Agusta has officially revealed the 800 Dragster RR. As the RR in the name indicates, the new motorcycle is performance versions of the standard motorcycle and is powered by retuned versions of the 798cc three-cylinder engine. The engine now produces 140bhp and 85.4Nm of torque and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with slipper clutch.

While the regular Dragster 800 gets cast wheels, the Dragster RR gets spoked Kineo wheels to match the paint work. Check out the picture gallery of the 800 Dragster RR.
Just a few hours after the studio pictures were leaked on the internet by a Dutch website, MV Agusta has officially taken the wraps off the Brutale 800 RR and 800 Dragster RR.

Both the Brutale 800 RR and the 800 Dragster RR will make their first public appearance at the 2014 EICMA Show in Milan, Italy.
