Montreux’s Finest Jazz: MV Agusta 750S America Magni and F4 1000 Tamburini (Switzerland)
Some of you might know the famous Montreux Jazz Festival. If not, I can only recommend you to visit this once in your life. It is obviously about music, and among the finest live music you can get. Well, this little and posh town on lake Geneva in Switzerland seems to have even more to offer.
Tonight’s special guests are Mr. Arturo Magni and Mr. Massimo Tamburini. They will sing together the following albums: the 750 America S from 1976 and the more recent F4 1000:
If you’d like to purchase these albums sold in block, check the French ebay link at the bottom of the page. What is the price, well don’t be rude, this needs to be discussed in private with the seller. Both bikes are visible in Montreux.
Let’s have a closer look at the the mouth watering Magni 750 first:
Produced between 1975 and 1980 it actually had a capacity of 789cc. It featured gear driven double overhead cams, 4 Dell’Orto Carbs and had a 5 speed gearbox. Evaluations can reach up to 60000 $. The purity in style of this sample coupled with the 4 megaphone exhaust pipes is simply fantastic !
Originally, this model was available with a camshaft drive. Not really what you want to see on a race replica bike, right. The legend goes that count Agusta didn’t want privateers to be competitive when racing his own creatures.
More realistically, this type of final drive was chosen to give the bike touring characteristics for the sporty gentlemen. The model featured here is special, as it features the Magni upgrade that replaces the whole right side of the engine and wheel by using a way lighter and way better classic chain drive.
What can we say, this is true BELLEZZA. Judging from the type of tires and that steering damper, this is also a bike to be ridden. I wish I had bought a ticket for this symphony.
As mentioned, this is on sale couples with the F4 1000 Tamburini. I consider the F4 1000 as the best of the F4 series as it had a better engine than the 750, which lacked punch below 10000 rpm, but kept the original F4 styling. The Tamburini is a limited edition version and a real special one among the many limited MV.
It featured for the first time the variable intake trumpet system, just like formula one cars at the time, full carbon fairing and the finest of chassis components. This bike dedicated to one of the greatest motorbike designer ever was not only a different colour scheme MV:
What more can we say. if you are an MV fan and have the possibility to grab these two beautiful Made in Italy creations, good luck to you !
You will have all my envy especially for that Magni
