M V Agusta has as of late turned out to be familiar with a few ” Limited Editions” of its valuable motorcycles, in any case, it appears, even during the 70s made a very limited editions model: talking about  MV Agusta Mini Bike Racing , a mechanized model that figured in value list offered by the Italian manufacturer in the mid – 70s .


Legend has it that in 1973 was made a one of its kind which was made smaller than expected motorcycle explicitly for the child of Phil Read, made to commend the triumph of the English best on the planet in the 500cc World Championship in the seat, truth be told, the MV Agusta .

The scaled down bike was proposed as a smaller than usual copy of the official Read 500, and has some striking subtleties, beginning from the fairing, the seat in calfskin, the half-handlebars and even the four “Tromboncini” at the back.
