1954 MV Agusta 500/4

All MV Agusta race bikes were hand built specials, the equivalent of a Formula One Ferrari. Introduced in 1950, the 4-cylinder basic design remained in use for 15 years. Continuous development, mainly in chassis in world championship titles and grand prix wins too numerous to list. A smaller, lighter and more powerful 3-cylinder model replaced the 500/4 in 1965.
