MV Agusta 600
Throughout the MV Agusta community the 600 is affectionately known as the “ugly duckling,” or by the common Anglo-saxon appellation, the “black pig.” Only 127 exemplars were built between 1967 and the beginning of the 70s, and all in black, with the exception of one in blue and one in yellow (although unconfirmed sources also speak of one in red). The lack of appreciation for its esthetic qualities and for its low performance, given the potential of the engine, led many enthusiasts to modify the mechanics and esthetics, resulting in prized “specials.”
Many owners of the 600 modified their bikes to resemble the 750, with the result that today very few 600s remain in original condition. It still remains a pleasant bike offering a relaxed ride, offering an official 60 cv at 8,000 rev/min and a net weight of over 485 lbs.
