Classic Italian Motorcycles
This unique machine was built and given the brand Ferrari with the permission of Enzos son Piero.
The 350 Sport Elettronica was a development of the original 250 twin and shared the same frame and basic engine with a range of twins which included a Scrambler, trials and touring models. The 360 degree parallel twin motor vibrated quite badly at higher rpm but less so than in the later Ipotesi model which had a stiffer frame. The MV was expensive for a 350 but the name, performance and looks justified the price.
Some books have claimed that these were made to use up left-over 600 parts. This is not true. The frames and crash bars, brake pedal and many other parts that look like 600 parts are in fact unique to the GT. The frame is basically the 750 Sport frame with footrest lugs added. It differs from the 600 frame. At least one disk brake model was built as one was exhibited at the 1974 Amsterdam show. As only 33 were built and a number of these were converted to Sports the GT has become the rarest of all the production MV fours.
The America was based on the disk 750 Sport but altered to suit the US market with air filtration, indicators and a de-tuned but larger engine giving similar performance. Sold in Europe as the 800 S Super America. Sales reached only 540 and not the 3000 projected so this was the last factory MV. Some of the many unsold examples were converted to 850ss spec by the factory and others.
Marketed in Germany by Hansen- a version of the America with disc rear brake and optional Magni pipes and mag wheels.
Specifications to suit client. Many bikes built by others using Magni frames and engine components. Also known as Magni 850 since the 837cc capacity was the same as the 850ss.
According to Sartis book only one was ever produced - for the 1973 Milan show. The bike was never put into production. Several very nice replicas have been created since.

Based on MV s successful 1950s race engine the 600 was far from the sporting machine that the public expected. It was in fact a very smooth, fast, comfortable and competent tourer let down only by the poor cable operated disk front brakes. Quirky or, to many, ugly looks meant that the 600 didnt attract many buyers. Some were converted into 500cc racers but many were updated to 750s configuration so that few original bikes remain and are deservedly sought after today.
