This model is particularly important in MV Agusta’s history: it is the first production motorcycle to feature a 4 stroke engine. It was a very important step towards a newgeneration of extremely interesting engines.
The single overhead cam distribution was very advanced and the performance was very good.
The version with 17” wheels had black frame, fork and shocks with olive drab tank and fenders.
The version with 19” wheels was completely black with a red tank.
