MV Agusta 125 Pull­man

All About Italy (USA) - - All About Italy | Italy On The Road -

More af­ford­able and avail­able to every­one, the MV Agusta 125 Pull­man is the model most widely pro­duced by MV Agusta. The av­er­age buyer used the mo­tor­bike as an only means of trans­port, ig­nor­ing its lack of beauty but ap­pre­ci­at­ing its soft sus­pen­sion and the wide tires. Pre­sented at the Brus­sels Sa­lon in Jan­uary 1953, the “Pull­man” gives the im­pres­sion of hav­ing an elon­gated body: an ef­fect cre­ated by the rear­ward po­si­tion­ing of the en­gine, with the rear sus­pen­sion as­sum­ing a weight-bear­ing func­tion. This cre­ates an empty space be­tween the front wheel and the frame sup­port, filled by the own­ers with an op­tional sheet me­tal cas­ing us­able as a stor­age space. The sec­ond se­ries dif­fered from the first by the adop­tion of a pedal gearshift which sub­sti­tuted the pre­vi­ous hand mech­a­nism and by a third shock ab­sorber.
