This MV Agusta was originally built as a 600, according to factory records. Not unusual, the frame and engine were modified to 750-specifications, as the original 600 was thought to be sluggish and unattractive. The modified MV then passed into a Belgian collection, where the motorcycle was subsequently sent to Giovanni Magni in August 2007 for further modification. The Magni name has been attached to MV Agusta since Arturo Magni led the incredibly successful MV Agusta racing team.

Giovanni carried on his father’s legacy by continuing to modify MV Agusta road bikes into powerhouse machines now famous in the motorcycling world. The bike offered here is one such creation, with a rebuilt 861-cc engine as well as chain-drive conversion.
