Magni Storia takes the MV Brutale back to the 1970s

The Magni Storia. Modern mechanicals, 1970s styling and colours. Perfect combination!

From 1950 until the late-1970s, Arturo Magni worked for MV Agusta's very successful motorcycle racing division. After MV Agusta's retirement from racing, Magni and his sons started building customised versions of production MVs. In the 1980s, Magni and sons also built Honda 900 Bol d'Or replicas, various boxer-engined BMWs and Moto Guzzis. Today, Magni continue to build some beautiful machines, which you can see on their website.

Here, we have the Magni Storia, a modern reinterpretation of the 1970s MV Agusta 750S. Based on the Brutale 1090, the Storia features a handcrafted aluminium fuel tank, a new rear subframe (made of chrome-molybdenum, TIG welded), leather seat, aluminium mudguard and side covers, Kineo wire-spoked wheels, handbuilt exhaust system and a bunch of carbonfibre bits.

The mechanicals are all carried over from the MV Agusta Brutale 1090 on which the Storia is based, and that's not at all a bad thing - a screaming 150 horsepower inline-four, an 8-level traction control system, hybrid chassis with tubular steel trellis-type and aluminum plate sections, single-sided swingarm, fully adjustable monoshock and 50mm USD fork, and powerful brakes with radial-mount calipers for the front discs.

Yes, we think the Magni Storia looks utterly beautiful!
