Evil little commuter to be on sale soon
Italjet injects some fun into short commutes with its new Dragster. The new model puts a radical new spin on its Dragster small scooter with very aggressive styling. The scooter makes use of sharp angles, trellis frames, and styling cues typical of a showbike rather than a daily commuter.
Just like the original Dragster, first launched in 1998 and discontinued in 2003, the new Dragstar features RAAD forkless front suspension, a water-cooled single-cylinder engine, and wide tires.
This time, the Dragster will be offered with either 125cc or 200cc engines. Both appear to be Aprilia/Rotax-derived four-valve engiens. They will be paired with an automatic dry centrifugal clutch with a continuously variable transmission. The 125cc makes 15-Hp while the 200cc produces 20-Hp.
Keeping it aloft will be a adjustable springs, linked with disc brakes (with ABS on the 200cc). They will roll on 120mm 70R12 tires in front and 150mm 70R13 tires in the rear. It boasts of a dry weight of 108-kg (125cc) and 112-kg (200cc).
They will be offered for sale soon in Europe, however we have yet to receive word if it will be offered by T.A. Marketing, dristributor of Italjet in the Philippines.
