Production:  The original objective was to build 200 units although it is widely believed that far fewer were actually built.  With a base model price of $6000 when new (over double that of nearest competitors) this limited number is not surprising. Arturo Magni headed up the MV Agusta racing department and his high performance conversion comprised a chain and sprocket final drive, a stout replacement swing arm and braced frame, rear disk brake and the Formula 750 performance exhaust system. Only a handful (exact number unknown but believed less than 20) received the Magni treatment.
