After in 1976 MV pulled out of racing Arturo Magni founded his own firm and developed a small range of handcrafted motorcycles, starting by using the MV alike Honda 900 Bol dOr engine for the MH1 and MH2. The succes of these bikes in Germany led to the BMW driven MB series. Due to a lack of response to these bikes Magni turned to an all-Italian motorcycle and found Moto Guzzi as a partner.In the following years Magni built over 700 Magni Guzzis since the first Magni Le Mans in 1985. A feature is the Parallelogrammo rear end, eliminating the handling disadvantages of the shaft-driven transmission. With its hand-made chrome-moly tubular frame, its fairing and all Italian components the Magni Arturo is a tribute to the earlier MVs.
