Default MV 750 sport America

how about that old lady?

i remember when child some of them around town





The Agusta family, for personal choices of the count, who did not want private pilots to compete against the official team, never wanted to produce super bikes replicas of racing motorcycles...
until the years 70...

have a good one

Beautiful & expensive. I remember a crowd around one in the early 70s when I went to watch bike sprints at Little Bispham.

I have an 06 910R. They are like "chalk and cheese" when you compare them to HD's.

I bought it when I had a gear box problem with the sporty. Bit Bi-polar I know, but wanted a bit more technology. I'm over that now and prefer the sporty, missus prefers to ride the MV and takes it on the track whenever she get's the chance. Nice bike but high maintainence.

They don't have a throttle they have a trigger and the steering is like a dream.
