For 2021, both the Brutale and Dragster RR feature the Smart Clutch System, build in collaboration with Rekluse, which eliminates the need for a clutch lever, but a gear shift lever is still there. On the electronics, there's a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU), which enables the traction control, launch control, front lift control and cornering ABS. There's also a new 5.5 TFT screen, which can be paired to a smartphone with a MV Ride app.
