Arturo Magni worked at MV Agusta for 26 years before leaving to open Elaborazioni Preparazioni Magni in Samarate, Italy. Known today simply as Magni (say man-YEE), the firm is known for its modified high performance versions of bikes from Moto Guzzi, BMW and MV Agusta. Sadly, in 2015, Arturo Magni passed away. 

In December the company unveiled a fitting tribute to their founder, in the form of the Magni Italia 01/01. 

The retro-look racer is powered by a modern MV Agusta triple (fully visible as Sig. Magni preferred it) producing 125 horsepower. 

No word yet on the possibility of a production version.

Fingers crossed!
