The ex­hi­bi­tion also shows off what was one of the most pres­ti­gious Ital­ian mo­tor­cy­cles, and one that has be­come an ab­so­lute rar­ity given that it was pro­duced in only 1152 ex­em­plars. We are speak­ing of the MV Agusta 750 Sport, a prod­uct of Cascina Costa. While it could not boast of per­for­mance su­pe­rior to its ri­vals, this model stood out for its in­cred­i­ble re­sem­blance to the mo­tor­cy­cle raced by the peer­less pi­lot Gi­a­como Agos­tini, who with his 15 world ti­tles re­mains the great­est mo­tor­cy­cle racer in his­tory. Cur­rently val­ued at over $43,000, the MV Agusta 750 Sport had a four-stroke en­gine, four cylinders in light al­loy and spark dis­trib­u­tor ig­ni­tion. The large front brake was notable, heavy and sub­ject to wear in case of in­tense use, while the rear one, also a cen­tral drum, was of re­duced di­men­sions. In any case, the frame was not ad­e­quate for the weight and per­for­mance of the en­gine and model.
