The MV Agusta 125 Racing, Italy’s champion

The MV Agusta 125 Racing was produced by the Lombard motorcycle brand in 1953, as a natural evolution of a model from the previous year – which had been designed by Piero Remor and Arturo Magni and had won the 125cc World Championship.

At the time, 125cc motorbikes could race in official Italian championships only if they had a single overhead camshaft and four-speed gearbox – and the MV Agusta 125 Racing was designed to those specs.

It was hugely successful in national competitions and stayed in production until 1956.
