Italjet recently launched the premium-built Dragster’s scooter range in Malaysia via its authorised dealership, Chear Global.
- Italjet is to reveal a bigger 300cc Dragster prototype and a concept bike in November.
- The Italjet Dragster 125 and Dragster 200 are now available in Malaysia for RM29,500 and RM34,800.
During the official launch held at Chear Global headquarters, the local press had the opportunity to sit down with Italjet’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Sandro Caparelli, who flew from Bologna, Italy.
Caparelli not only explained to us the exciting development of Italjet’s Dragster 125 and Dragster 200 but also was kind enough to disclose the Italian company’s next project.
According to Caparelli, Italjet is currently working on a bigger displacement Dragster and is scheduled to showcase the prototype at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this November.
The Dragster prototype will feature a single-cylinder DOHC 300cc engine that was built from the ground up. Apparently, there is a high demand for a bigger Dragster in its home country.
“In EICMA we will show a prototype of the same Dragster but with a bigger displacement because the market in Italy had asked for a bigger engine.
“It will use a bigger engine, a 300cc engine,” he said.
In addition, Caparelli revealed that Italjet would also showcase a concept bike at EICMA alongside the 300cc Dragster prototype.
“There will be a big concept which I can’t disclose now, but the new concept will be the star of the show at EICMA,” he added.
That said, Caparelli also mentioned that the bigger displacement Dragster could materialise in a couple of years, while the concept bike will take a while to be in the near-production stage.
Meanwhile, the Italjet Dragster 125 and Dragster 200 are now available in Malaysia for RM29,500 and RM34,800, respectively.
