MV Agusta is one of the most famous names in motorcycle history having won 270 Grand Prix races, 38 World Riders' Championships and 37 World Constructors Championships with legendary riders such as Giacomo Agostini, Mike Hailwood, Phil Read, Carlo Ubbiali, Gary Hocking and John Surtees. It all began in the early years of the 20th century when Count Giovanni Agusta left Sicily for northern Italy where he built his first aircraft, the AG1, four years after the Wright brothers had made history in the USA. Before the end of WW2 he identified a need for cheap transport once hostilities were over and had developed a 98cc engine that went into production in 1946. Count Domenico Agusta had a passion for motorcycle racing and much like Enzo Ferrari, the Agusta family produced motorcycles almost exclusively to fund their racing efforts, with the company going on to dominate Grand Prix racing in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Inline 4-cylinder engines were a characteristic feature of MV Agusta race bikes and a very exclusive range of 600cc to 860cc 4 cylinder road bikes became the most desirable and expensive bikes available at the time. Motorcycle production ceased in 1977 to concentrate on the more profitable helicopter division, only restarting in 1999 after the Castiglioni family took over the name and launched a new range starting with the F4 750.

The F4 750 was created by legendary motorcycle designer Massimo Tamburini at CRC (Cagiva Research Center), following his work on the Ducati 916, with a full 1000cc version being launched in 2006. This beautiful example, presented in original condition, was bought new by the enthusiast vendor in 2007 and has been used sparingly since as part of his collection of classics. Unfortunately, due to ill health, he has not been able to ride it for a while so it will need recommissioning before use. It comes supplied with all of the manuals and instruction books handed over when new, an unused tool kit and a current V5C.
