1974 MV Agusta 750S
Registration no. TML 359M
Frame no. MV4C75 214 0367
Engine no. 214 0359
• Last run 2019
• Later twin-disc front end
• Original front drum brake, wheel, fork legs included
• One previous owner

Developed from its long line of highly successful multi-cylinder racers, MV Agusta's first road-going four - the 4C, a twin-carburettor, 600cc, shaft-driven tourer - appeared in 1965. But the public demanded something more exciting from many-times World Champions MV, and the Gallarate manufacturer duly obliged in 1968, upping capacity to 743cc and further boosting maximum power (to 65bhp) by fitting a quartet of Dell'Orto carburettors to the revised 750S, a high-speed symphony in red, white and blue. Perhaps surprisingly for a sports model, the 750S retained the 4C's shaft final drive while the frame too was virtually identical to that of its predecessor. Hand made in limited numbers and priced accordingly, the 750S was way beyond the financial reach of the average enthusiast. This MV Agusta 750S has had only one previous owner, who during his ownership registered the machine in the names of various businesses he owned, hence the V5/V5C documents recording more than one previous keeper. Last run in 2019, the machine benefits from a later twin-disc front end and the addition of a fairing, and is described by the private vendor as in generally very good condition. The original front drum brake, wheel, fork legs and associated parts are included in the sale.
