2000 Italjet Dragster 180 ‘superleggera’

This build started out as a stock 2000 Dragster 180. I purchased it from the original owner in Washington, ho had been using it as a pit bike. I’ve always loved the Dragster, nd wanted to make it into something even more unique. If you aren’t familiar with the Dragster, t was designed by Miguel Galluzzi (of Ducati Monster fame) with hub-center steering designed by Elf. It is a liquid cooled 180cc 2-stroke. Only a handful made it to the states through the grey market.

The following is a list of modifications, ut as it’s been 3 years in the making I’m sure I am forgetting something (or a lot of things). It is the fastest, ightest, ost fun to ride scooter I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. Freshly titled, agged and registered in Colorado.

Recent service, etting and tune by Scooter Labs Denver


Speedo works intermittently, eeds to be calibrated

Pillion cover tabs have broken, ew one is on order and will be included with the bike

Left grip has a hole in the end

Front fairing is missing a few tabs. This does not affect structural integrity, ut there are some screw holes without screws. This can be fixed by any competent fabrication shop.

Between the stock bike and modifications, have about $15k into this bike (and all receipts). Finding a stock 180cc in the states is hard enough, ou won’t find one like this.

As I said, ’m sure I’m forgetting something. With all of the modifications, t’s pushing 36hp at the rear wheel. I’ve had it up to about 120mph (indicated), nd it had a bit of room left. I’ve also taken it on 400+ mile trips, nd it’s been super reliable. Reason for selling? I travel too much to enjoy this bike.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have. Bike is currently located in Denver Colorado. Photos are from 1 year ago and do not reflect the PM Tuning 172 kit. I can take additional photos upon request. Bike available to show anytime. Test rides are welcome with a deposit of the full sales price.

Thanks for looking!
