description

MV Agusta's classic four-cylinder dominated Grand Prix racing for a decade from 1956. When it was replaced by the new triple in 1966, Count Agusta decided to make the Four available in limited numbers as a production bike.

To prevent privateers converting it into a Grand Prix racer that may embarrass the factory, he stipulated it should be 600cc and have shaft final drive. The touring 600 eventually evolved into the 750 Sport and GT, and finally the America, but MV Fours were always built in extremely small numbers. As befit an engine that handed multiple World Championships to John Surtees, Gary Hocking, and Mike Hailwood, the technical specification was staggering, and remains so to this day.

● Full description of model development
● A look at the 600, 750 and America prototypes
● Examines the racing history that led to the creation of the myth
● Tips on riding and maintaining an MV four
● Researched with the cooperation of Arturo Magni, Dave and Mark Kay, and Albert Bola
● Guide to authenticity
● Analysis of the four-cylinder engine
● Production numbers of the early fours

This magnificent engine was always at the heart of the MV Agusta, and it was this engine that created and sustained the legend.
