A stunning example of their engineering skill was the V8 cylinder 500 GP motorcycle built by Moto Guzzi, a family company founded by Carlo Guzzi in the 1920s.

The Grand Prix Motorcycle: The Official Technical History by Kevin Cameron – Review Some folks follow MotoGP racing because of the personalities involved, others, and I have a hunch that would be many of you, are more interested in the tech side of things, it’s not who is riding what, it’s what are they riding.

Although the large format and glossy pages make you think it’s one of those coffee table books soon forgotten, in reality, this is a complete history of the top level of motorcycle racing ...

Memorable Motorcycle: MV Agusta F4 750 — Motorcycle USA

Memorable Motorcycle: MV Agusta F4 750 Claudio Castiglioni — Cagiva brand-builder, Ducati savior and MV Agusta owner who introduced the F4 750 to the world. Although I was invited to the launch of the MV Agusta F4, I had to reluctantly decline the offer because 15 years ago my mind was 101% concentrated on keeping our newly launched Thundersprint alive. As things turned out, this was all to the good because later I had the great pleasure of spending a day with Claudio Castiglioni, who was the driving force behind the re-launch of the MV brand. Claudio and I got on really well, so much so that he later rode at the Thundersprint. Claudio was a fascinating mix of gentility, kindness and ...

MV Agusta 750S America (December 2005) The fat lady hadn’t actually sung but MV Agusta’s best times were well and truly behind it when its America model was launched. Ian Falloon of Motorcycle Trader mag takes up the story There is no more hallowed name amongst the Italian motorcycle marques than that of MV Agusta. Its achievement is unequalled with 38 individual riders’ World Championships and 37 manufacturers’ World Championships over the twenty-five year period from 1952 until 1976. During that time MVs won 270 World Championship races, and the spin-off was a limited number of street bikes in a range of capacities, culminating in the magnificent 790cc America. The ...

Bonhams : c.1957 MV Agusta 500cc Grand Prix Racing Motorcycle

c.1957 MV Agusta 500cc Grand Prix Racing Motorcycle Frame no. 1104 Engine no. 4 Arguably the greatest team in Grand Prix racing history, MV Agusta won everything that was worth winning at world level from the early 1950s to the late 1960s and beyond. Machines raced by the legendary Italian works team are among the rarest and most desirable racing motorcycles ever made. All surviving examples are held either in museums or private collections and only extremely rarely is one ever offered for public sale. The MV (Meccanica Verghera) story began in 1945 when Count Domenico Agusta was forced to seek an alternative means of utilising his family-s aero engine factory at Gallarate. Forbidden to ...

Buell Motorcycles to be Discontinued and MV Agusta Sold Off as Harley Davidson Income Falls Harley Davidson’s earnings just came in and third-quarter net income dropped 84%. But this jumped out at me: The company plans to discontinue its Buell product line and sell its MV Agusta unit, essentially exiting the sport bike market. The fact is we must focus both our effort and our investment on the Harley-Davidson brand, as we believe this provides an optimal path to sustained, meaningful long-term growth, CEO Keith Wandell said in the release. Buell motorcycles will be discontinued, resulting in the loss of 180 jobs over time and MV Agusta will be sold. The troubles are substantial and ...
