MV Agusta has been an Italian producer of motorcycles since 1945. The brand’s bikes are known for their performance, racing technology, engineering, and craftsmanship. Mechanics build each engine by hand.
The company’s origins date to 1907, when the Sicilian aristocrat Count Giovanni Agusta started an eponymous aeronautics firm servicing airplanes. It later produced them for Italy’s royal air force during the World Wars and branched out into building helicopters.
Meanwhile, the company also diversified into motorcycles and made its first branded model, the MV 98. Its reputation for producing winning racing motorbikes helped sales of its road models.
“MV” is short for “Meccanica Verghera.” “Meccanica” means “mechanics” in Italian, and Verghera is the town where the first MV motorcycles were born.
