Italjet becomes official Imola paddock bike | NEWS
Two new pre-production Italjet Dragsters have been delivered to the Imola circuit in Italy. The iconic machine has been chosen as the official paddock bike of the track and more will be added (with unique livery) once production commences in early 2021.
The scooters will be used by riders, drivers and support staff at the circuit. Massimo Tartarini, President and CEO of Italjet Spa said “It is great pride that we become the supplier of this famous circuit Imola. We are linked in this relationship by collaboration, as well as sharing the same strong sense of belonging to the territory with Imola being our neighbour in the “Italian Motor Valley” “The DRAGSTER, defined by us as the Urban Superbike, it is a hymn to sportsmanship and its values. The same ones you breathe in the Autodromo, where we carry out testing of the DRAGSTER prototypes, this also gave us the perfect backdrop to create media and content to support the coming launch of the new Dragster”.
Although Dragster production was put back by a few months due to COVID-19, it’s given Italjet time to bring the scooters up to Euro 5 spec and make some other improvements.
- Full Euro 5 approval
- All 125/200c machines will come with ABS (rather than the CBS originally planned for the 125)
- Front brake disc increased to 200mm (previously 175mm)
- Fuel capacity up to 11-litres (was 9-litres)
- Suspension by Paioli (same supplier as original Dragster)
