The Agusta name has a long history in Italy for its production in the aviation industry and today is one of the world leaders in helicopter manufacture. Count Domenico Agusta inherited his fathers business in the late 1920ís and considered motorcycling a keen hobby. In 1945 he produced his first motorcycle and the marque soon became known as the Ferrari of the two wheeled world.
Inexpensive cars surfaced in the late 1950ís that caused a number of motorcycle manufacturers to call it quits but luckily for Agusta he had the successful aviation business to fall back on. MV Agusta had enormous success in racing from the early 1950ís to late 1970ís and were ridden by some of the most famous racers winning 75 world championships, 270 Grand Prix wins and 3027 international race wins.
