Italian motorcycle brand Magni presented a model called Italia 01/01 designed as a tribute to its founder Arturo Magni, who passed away in 2015. The Italia 01/01 is a blend of retro style design with a state of the art. MV Agusta art engine. Arturo Magni founded the company that bears his name in 1977 after working for MV Agusta for 26 years. And he played an important role in the golden age of Grand Prix racing for MV Agusta. Prior to founding his own company, Magni started working at Gilera, before moving to MV Agusta in 1950 where he held the position of Racing Department until 1976, a role that allowed him to contribute to 37 manufacturers and 38 world pilot titles.


The Magni Italia 01/01 has an exposed frame and engine, a look favored by Arturo Magni

The Magni brand is famous for creating modern interpretations of motorcycles from the heyday of Grand Prix racing, specializing in retro-modern MV Agusta models. Its bikes feature classic-looking frames that use modern manufacturing techniques and materials, with MV Agusta’s three-cylinder engines providing power. The Italian 01/01 is an example of this thought process, with a round headlight, an aerodynamic fairing that wraps around the handlebars and a short tail. The designers didn’t add any panels to the bottom of the bike, to keep the frame, which was designed in-house, and the engine exposed. Arturo Magni would have preferred this look, exhibiting the “beauty of the engine’s mechanical structure visible”.

The Italia 01/01 is powered by a 798 cc three-cylinder engine from MV Agusta. Magni has not released any specifications, but the engine is expected to produce around 125 hp and 81 Nm of maximum torque. Magni has not disclosed if the Italia 01/01 is a one-off model or if it is expected to be produced in the coming months. Even if built, the Italia 01/01 will likely be a limited edition model.
