Count Vincenzo Agusta’s Meccanica Verghera company was formed at the end of the Second World War and became famous for their small capacity motorcycles during the Fifties and Sixties. By the mid-Sixties, MV moved towards larger capacity bikes to counter the decline in sales of the smaller 125-150cc models. Something of an enigma, this 1972 MV Agusta appears to be a model that never officially entered production, namely a 250S with electronic ignition. Based on the 250B, the mainstay of 250cc production between 1967 and 1971, the bike utilized MV’s fantastic little ohv vertical twin, with a bore and stroke of 53 x 56mm and twin Dell’Orto carburetors.

First imported to London on January 30, 1973 by Gus Kuhn Motorcycles, MV factory production records indicate the bike was completed on October 27, 1972. Dated by the MV Owner’s Club, it was built some 17 months after 250cc production officially ceased. The current owner located the 250S in the United Kingdom approximately four years ago, in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition, and it has formed part of his private collection ever since. Superbly styled and beautifully crafted, this MV Agusta was one of the more sophisticated bikes on the market and this intriguing model presents a rare opportunity for collectors.
