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.
