MV Agusta Factory Tour: The Phoenix Keeps Rising, In The August Issue

In the August 2022 issue of Roadracing World:

MV Agusta has its roots in a northern Italian airplane company started in 1923 by Sicilian Count Giovanni Agusta, who designed and built his first airplane in 1907. After his death in 1927, his son Domenico diversified the company into motorcycles.

WWII saw a brisk aircraft business for the Axis power-aligned Italy. Both BMW and Piaggio were also airplane engineering and manufacturing firms (as well as Kawasaki) but the treaty that ended the war barred Italy and Japan from continuing their aeronautics programs, which meant that all of that airplane defense engineering potential would be refocused on motorcycles.

Hence, the Allies won the war, but the Axis powers made all the best motorcycle…

          The Phoenix Keeps Rising, by Sam Q. Fleming.

The Meccanica Verghera Agusta brand and the first MV 98 motorcycle were both born in 1945, the year the Second World War ended. Now, 77 years later, Sam Q. Fleming takes a tour of the factory where MV Agusta is still producing its iconic fast, distinctive and beautiful motorcycles. Read about (and see) the process–it’s in the latest print issue of Roadracing World!
