Using one basic model, MV would make many variations from touring to a production racer, and name them accordingly. Turismo, Lusso, Rapido, Extra and Sport are but a few. This handsome 125 sports styled machine is a “Grand Turismo” or “Great Tourer.” To own a 4-stroke powered bike, irrespective of the capacity, was prestigious in postwar Italy.
