Blue-Chip Bialbero: 1977 MV Agusta 850SS

MV Agusta was famous through the 50s and 60s for their innumerable Grand Prix wins, but it was the DOHC Four of the 70s that ascended their bikes into the hyper exotic.

In the realm of four cylinder designs, few are as evocative as a 70s vintage MV Agusta. One look at the cylinder head, and one is instantly reminded of MV’s prolific racers of the 50s and 60s. Furthermore, this design borrowed heavily from older Gilera race bikes, which in turn descended from the Rondine four of 1934. The heart of this bike is the culmination of decades of Italian racing history.
