Below is a brief history of the MV Agusta brand. It is this history that makes MV Agusta one of the most historic and influencial motorcycles of all time. It is why we take our work so seriously and recognise that MV Agusta owners demand and expect only the best when it comes to looking after their machine.


MV AGUSTA was born during the postwar reconstruction period. Founded in the 1945, it actually initially produced and commercialized the first fifty units in 1946 riding the wave of an era that will mark the conquest of individual mobility. To give an image and value to its production, MV AGUSTA launched its challenge in competition terrain, adopting a philosophy which soon became also a commercial slogan: “Racing experience at the service of mass production.” Three years after the birth of the World Championship, S. Sandford conquered (1952) the Title in the 125 category and, in parallel, marked the beginning of an era characterized by the crushing domination of MV AGUSTA motorcycles. For over 20 years, the red and silver fairings identified motorcycles capable of making a legend of all those who were privileged enough to grasp its handlebars. Amongst these apart from Giacomo Agostini, whom alone conquered 14 of the 37 World Titles, the passionate fans were enthusiastic about the exploits by Surtess, Hocking, Hailwood, Read, Ubbiali and Provini, all riders that contributed with their results to the record of 270 Gran Prix wins by MV AGUSTA. During this unforgettable competitive period, the most indelible wins were those conquered in the top class, the 500. Dressed in red and silver, these invincible “record machines” took the hearts of all fans sensitive to the esoteric charm of the inline four cylinder. An engine endowed with an extraordinary force largely underlined by the four megaphone-like exhausts, responsible for an unforgettable and terrifying roar. Distinguishing features that could not remain an exclusive heritage of the fortunate witnesses of that unforgettable era, needed to testify also in the future.


In the 1980, the year MV activity ended at Cascina Costa (VA), the most noble brand in motorcycle history lived could count of the 75 World Titles (38 riders championships and 37 constructors championships) conquered by Sandford, Surtess, Hocking, Hailwood, Read, Ubbiali, Provini and obviously Agostini. However, by the 15th of September 1997 the legend of MV AGUSTA went on and was born a new phenomenon: the F4 Serie Oro. Coherent with its past the new MV AGUSTA, produced in the Schiranna (VA) factory, appeared as a sculpture modeled around an extraordinary inline four cylinder, precious in shape and equally as esoteric as its predecessor. The new creation appeared immediately like a synthesis of the sports motorcycle. A concept that after five years no competitor has yet been able to surpass. This has now developed into more models then ever before seen and the introduction of the three cylinder 675 F3 and B3 as well as new F4 and Brutale variants.

When looking for an entry level motorcycle to sell through our store it was imperative that we did our homework and got the best possible make comprising high build quality, reliability, styling and price. After all it has to sit next to some of the best motorcycles on the planet with the likes of MV Agusta and Husqvarna.

We looked at a range of options but simply could not go past the Hyosung. With its range expanding, quality control levels on par with other leading brands and proven performance and reliability, they were simply the best choice.

More and more we are seeing people customise these bikes. Whether it is a custom cruiser or a guy wanting to turn his GT650R into a track or race bike, these bikes now have a market sector all of their own with a wide range of spares and accessories and we can see why.
Founded in 1978 as a division of the massive Hyosung Group, Hyosung Motors & Machinery Inc. began producing motorcycle designs under license for the South Korean market in 1979.

In 1986, Hyosung established its own research and development centre in Japan and, the following year, began mass production of its own designs.
In just 20 years, Hyosung has made a highly successful transition from producing simple, efficient bikes for commuting into the highly competitive recreational market. It’s also expanded into developed export markets such as Australia, Europe, America, Brazil and China. We are proud to be associated with this make and believe that whether it be a learner legal or simply a good mid capacity cruiser or pure mid capacity sports bike, it is hard to go past a Hyosung.

We are an authorised service and tuning centre providing unparalleled workmanship and care for your Hyosung. Furthermore we can customise the suspension and performance of your bike so that you can get the most out of it and keep it running at its optimum capacity. Call us for the best Hyosung package available. We have finance terms that are also extremely competitive and can package your new bike with any required riding gear you may require to help get you riding as soon as possible.
