Engine: MV Agusta Brutale 800. Frame and chassis: Magni. Today’s technology in the Optil of the day before yesterday. Splendid.

Half-shell in the style of a Guzzi Le Mans with a perfect connection to the lower edge of the tank.

Three-cylinder, four mufflers: finely curved exhaust system, not dissimilar to the style of the old world champion motorcycles.

Chassis completely new with a telescopic fork at the front and stereo dampers at the rear, with Brembo brakes and wire rims and tubeless tires.

It’s hard to believe that behind the small radiator there is an 800 cubic, 125 hp engine. Chapeau, MV for these dimensions of the triple.

Beautiful even without words. Unfortunately, sound photography has not yet been invented, let’s just imagine a poorly tuned Porsche engine with a finely chubby finish when the gas is closed.

There must also be something to complain about: Original cockpit under the pulpit, masked with a tachometer. There are many ways to make it more beautiful.

There will only be one. The Magni Italia is a one-off and was built by Giovanni to pay homage to his late father Arturo Magni.

MV Agusta, Magni, Italia. Everything said.

It’s just a 1970s snap-cap style gas cap, also called a Monza gas cap. But the fine structure of the polished metal alone seems to tell its own story. I digress.

Airbox gone, turned announcement stubs with “Filter”, which only birds would not be able to suckle. The modern engine technology is already very well hidden.

Also great: obviously hand-hammered footrests with quickshifter and minimal heel support in a 2 euro piece size.

Fine box swingarm made of chromoly steel with wonderfully simple eccentrics for tensioning the chain.

Magni Italia 01/01
Motor from MV, frame from Magni

Magni. A melodious sound like two red wine glasses made of the finest crystal after toasting. Five years after the death of the old master Arturo Magni, son and successor Giovanni presents an artistic homage with the Italia 01/01 – with an engine from MV Agusta, of course.

The most beautiful motorcycles come from Italy and their makers all start with an M. Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, Mucati and of course Magni. Mucati only became Ducati shortly after the Renaissance Wars around 1560 (Editor’s note: Historically incorrect.).

Rest in peace, Arturo Magni. Although the master should now smile quite a bit when he looks down at his son Giovanni’s homage to him. It says Magni Italia 01/01 and you have to look carefully to be able to separate modern technology and classic style elements.

Engine: MV Agusta Brutale 800. Frame and chassis: Magni. Today’s technology in the Optil of the day before yesterday. Splendid.

History obliges: engine from MV Agusta

Between 1955 and 1976 could MV Agusta Experience 37 world championship titles in different cubic capacity classes. All under the aegis of chief technician and race director Arturo Magni. Of course, the homage is also built with an MV engine, that of a Brutale 800 with 125 hp. Its compact design is only really noticeable in the tubular frame of the Italia 01/01. For the statistics: the silver paint is an engine from 2012 to 2015. Freed from the airbox and placed under the long magni tank, the potent three-cylinder looks almost like a model kit. No wonder, the 800 triple is basically a drilled out 675 three-pot.

Airbox gone, turned announcement stubs with “Filter”, that only birds would not be able to suckle. The modern engine technology is already very well hidden.

Frame made of tube, motor is load-bearing

The main feature of the Magnis from 1980 onwards was always the stiff tubular frame made of chromoly steel with a box swing arm made in the same way – that is for the in-line engines. The models with BMW or Guzzi twins had a specially developed parallelogram swing arm from Magni to counter the strong load changes of the cardan drives. Not dissimilar to the way current torque supports of modern cardans work. In the case of the Italia 01/01, the triple also hangs supportive in a tubular frame from the colloquial language “Rennstahl” called alloy, shows off a lot of space above the gear housing and hearts beat faster with the classic, open frame triangle a la Tonti.

Old school Magni landing gear

Even with the chassis of the Magni Italia 01/01, not much remains of the MV Agusta Brutale 800, basically nothing at all. Giovanni Magni again uses the style element of the slim box swing arm with the wonderfully simple-looking eccentric ends for chain tensioning and Oram’s stereo struts. The conventional fork with 43 mm stanchions and axially bolted, almost historic P4 saddles from Brembo, which bite into 320 mm discs, come from the same company. The Brutale’s ABS and traction control seem to have stayed on board. It gets really old when it comes to the exhaust system: The three pots of the MV propellant may roar into an absurdly finely curved 3-in-4 system, completely in the style of the Agostini and Read world champion motorcycles of a very long time ago.

Disguise, everything Magni

Unsurprisingly, however, with the bodywork of Italia 01/01 by Magni. Classic half-shell made of GRP, famous for our Le Mans fairing, long Magni-typical tank and a short single-seater rear very similar to the world championship bikes of yore. Unfortunately somewhat rustic looking triple clamps from our own production and of course the only faux pas of the Italia: The original MV cockpit has been preserved and is masked with a large rev counter. Its scale goes up to 16,000 tours and looks like the Mucati instrument, sorry, Ducati 999 very close.

Conclusion

You lick your fingers even without sauce. Fine composition the Magni Italia 01/01. One-of-a-kind and not for sale, yet one often wants this elegant amalgamation of modern technology in very old clothes and at Magni no one asks for Euro 5.
