MV Agusta Cilindri


Posted on June 26, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Racer. No Comments

What a classic Italian racer. While a 3-cylinder engine was not exactly a novelty (others  had experimented with this configuration) it was undoubtedly the first to achieve such brilliant performance. A full 92 HP at 13,500 RPM, lightness and excellent handling made this 500 the most successful of the MV stable. Following its 1966 debut, it won 7 consecutive world championships from 1967 to 1973 with G. Agostini. That was no easy feat. Wouldn’t you love to ride this machine on a race track?
