World exclusive for ITALIAN MOTOR - but what's wrong with this bike??


Thanks again to my friend Dorian, I've managed to photograph, and in this case document for important reasons, a very rare MV Agusta.

In fact, in this case we're talking about a genuine world exclusive for various reasons, and I'm very honoured that ITALIAN MOTOR magazine will be the first magazine, on the whole planet no less, to run a full feature on this machine in the near future.

But what's strange about this bike?

UPDATE: Ok, here's another photo - you're all very close, I'll be posting up a small video soon that shows all.....



UPDATE number 2:  Here's another!!

No rear brake lever or gear lever or whatever it should have on the right hand side ?

You are all very close...Pete was straight in there..all will be revealed after the weekend. May not seem much but this is an extremely rare motorcycle

Ok, no gear pedal - so gearchange must be hand operated, note position of clutch lever. Just like a Vespa?

Throttle controlled by lever and not twist-grip?

Good guess but no cigar..

Rear brake operated by hand leaver??

Another feasible guess...but not right - I'm really enjoying this!!
