Magni Filo Rosso

The Filo Rosso, or the Red Line, is the symbolic thread that has always run through Magni's work, starting with his learning from Piero Remor in the early 1950s, to being the all-round inspiration behind MV Agusta's multiple world championships, and then going on with son Giovanni to create hand-built machines with individuality, handling prowess and charisma.

This one is no different. Ok, so it looks like an MV race bike you may say. Yes, but that's not a bad thing, is it? And this one is powered by the MV Agusta Brutale's rev-happy 798cc triple cylinder motor that needs a 13.000rpm red line.

Not often we want to just jump on a bike we've been sent pics of and just ride the bollocks off it, but this is one of those occasions. Bravo, Magni!

absolutely stunning. I'm not a big fan of the modern MV's and I'm not sure about the current triple, but gee, this is one beautiful machine

This bike is stunning from every aspect.
If you're "not sure about the MV triple" then I would suggest you at least ride one of those modern MV Agustas that you're not a fan of. Try a Brutale 800, Rivale or F3-800. The MV triple is one of the best motorcycle engines I've ever experienced.
This latest Magni as well as current MV Agustas are, in a word, brilliant.
