Looking around the Dragster it seems as if Italjet haven’t cut any corners and the level of finish is high with the paint on the trellis very impressive. It is unlikely there will be any issues with the single cylinder motor in either 125 or 200 guise as it is a pretty tried and tested design and with suppliers such as Brembo and Pirelli used the quality of parts seems good. All UK bikes come with a two-year warranty.

Italjet enlisted the help of Andrea Dovizioso in fine-tuning the Dragster’s chassis, although you have to question quite how much input a MotoGP rider would have had with a scooter’s handling.
The Dragster 125 costs £5199 OTR with the 200 version upping this very slightly to £5499. While that is a lot for a 125 scooter when compared to cheap Chinese rivals, is it about right for a high end model such as the Yamaha XMAX 125 (£5150).
But the Dragster is so out there in terms of its styling and attitude it could be a rival for a naked 125 such as the KTM 125 Duke (£4499) or Kawasaki Z125 (£3999) or even other odd-ball 125s such as the Honda MSX125 (£3799), Monkey (£3999) or DAX (£TBC).
At the end of the day, there are very few bikes that rival the Dragster in terms of its looks and realistically it is in a class of one and you pay for this exclusivity, especially the Dragster 200, which is a bit of an odd capacity in the UK.
Always billed as sporty, the Dragster is initially a bit unnerving to ride as its small wheels (12-inch front, 13-inch rear) and low centre of gravity make it flop very rapidly into bends and the ISS front end gives an odd feel, meaning you are never 100% sure what the front wheel is up to.
As the Dragster weighs just 133kg wet, the weight of the rider has an enormous impact on its handling but once you get used to how it responds your confidence grows and you can certainly chuck it about.The Dragster is powered by a 4-stroke, 4-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled 125cc engine that produces 12.5 BHP. It features a Trellis frame in chrome molybdenum, adjustable front and rear suspension, I.S.S.
