  • This Iconic MV Agusta 750 S has been in the vendor's hands since 1986
  • Previously on display for many years at the Midland Motor Museum
  • The mileage is believed correct due to lack of use as it was on display
  • Purchased by the vendor in 1986 and then placed back on loan at the museum
  • The MV will need recommissioning before use due to storage, but has been run from time to time
  • Current V5C and various paperwork including old mot certs and purchase receipt on file

Launched in 1970, the MV Agusta 750 S was hand-built, rare and priced accordingly with just 583 examples ever built. The MV 750 S was developed from the MV Agusta 4C 600cc. The engine was then bored out to 743cc with the additional fitting of four Dell' Orto carburettors and increasing it to 65bhp The colour scheme was unique for the 705 S, painted in Red, White and Blue. A very desirable machine today and one for the MV collector.

This iconic MV Agusta 750 S has been in the vendor's custodianship since 1986. For many years the machine was on display at the Midland Motor Museum, then bought by the vendor who then loaned it back to the museum. Due to the bike’s lack of use as a static display, the mileage is believed correct. Recommissioning will be required before use, due to having been in storage, but has been run from time to time. There is a current V5C and various paperwork, including old MOT certificates and a purchase receipt on file.
