MV Agusta

A truly legendary name in the motorcycle industry, Italian manufacturer MV Agusta built their reputation on the back of enviable racing success including 37 World Championship titles, 273 Grand Prix victories and numerous TT wins. Producing mainly small capacity sports style road bikes during the 1950’s and 1960’s, the company later offered a mouth-watering selection of 4-cylinder 4 stroke road bikes including the gorgeous 750 America and 750 Sport models.

 

Unfortunately by the early 1980’s MV Agusta had ceased motorcycle production following their withdrawal from racing but in 1991 Cagiva added the famous MV name to their already extensive portfolio. The stunning 1998 MV Agusta F4 was the first of the new range and was quickly followed by the naked MV Brutale, available in 750 , 900 and 1000cc versions. In 2013 the MV F3 model was launched, a 675cc supersports bike which features a 3-cylinder motor producing almost 130bhp. Now under the ownership of Claudio Castiglioni, MV have lately expanded their range still further to include new naked bikes such as the Rivale 800 and adventure sports tourers including the Turismo Veloce 800 and Stradale 800
