In the 25 years from 1952 to 1976, MV Agusta had won 37 manufacturers’ World Championships. This involved winning 270 World Championship races, some of them for many years in succession. Taking into account other races not of world Championship status, it has been calculated that over 4,000 had been won by MVs during that 25 year period. They were the "bike to beat" before the Japanese came on the scene. They are currently back in business, although the Agusta family no longer owns them (I believe the real Agusta Company currently makes high-end corporate helicopters). MV is credited with manufacturing the first of the modern in-line fours, there is little doubt that the ancestors of the "America" inspired Japanese thinking and led to the emergence of the Honda fours, culminating in the debut of the CB 750.

All moving components in the engine are running on ball or needle bearings, this engine was truly designed to be serviced like a Grand prix race
