MV Agusta Information:
MV Agusta began in February of 1945 under the name Meccanica Verghera Agusta, near Milan in Italy. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the company built café-racer style motorcycles. With their 125-150cc engines, they were a fun bike to enjoy. MV Agusta has older roots. Count Giovanni Agusta had built a family business around aviation. In the '20s, the Count died, and the business went to his wife and sons. Domenico and Vincenzo Agusta made changes to the company after World War II. They changed it to save the jobs of their employees and fill a need for cheap transportation. The sons loved racing and mechanics. They decided to create racing bikes to fund their own racing efforts. They aspired to have the best racing team in the world. By now it's late 1960s and they decided to expand into larger dispersing engines. Today MV Agusta is strong in the motorcycle world. They dropped out of racing in the '70s with a semi-comeback in 2004. Today this day, they still create quality motorcycles to give you the thrill ride you desire. Their current new models are in seven categories. Each one delivers a high cylinder capacity meant for racing.
