Although better known for their racing and road-going multi-cylinder machines, MV Agusta also built a range of stylish single- and twin-cylinder sports bikes throughout the 1950s, '60s and '70s. They were intermittently available in Britain throughout this period but were expensive and never top sellers. Introduced at the Milan Show in 1971, MV's first production 350 roadster was basically an over-bored version of the existing 250B model that had been around since 1967. Of unitary construction, the engine was a compact, twin-cylinder, overhead-valve unit featuring twin Dell'Orto carburettors, geared primary drive and a five-speed gearbox. Claimed maximum power was 28bhp at 7,600rpm and top speed in excess of 90mph. Two versions were made: the 350GT tourer and 350B sports, both of which were updated with 12-volt electrics and electronic ignition in October 1972. They were replaced by restyled, 'square case' 350 Sport/GT equivalents for 1975. The basic engine architecture remained unchanged, but power went up to 34bhp at 8,500 revs with a commensurate increase in performance. First registered in the UK in 1992, this 'square case' model has 25,990 kilometres recorded and would respond well to detailing. A receipt on file shows that the machine was purchased in 1999. Offered with old/current V5C documents.
