The most recent work is said to have included cleaning the engine case and reupholstering the seat as well as installing a new battery, chain, muffler, and front tire. This MV Agusta is sold with a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The 172cc overhead-valve single was the first 4-stroke offered by MV Augusta and produced eight horsepower in stock form. A 4-speed transmission with a right-side rocker shift transfers power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. The most recent work reportedly included replacement of the battery and chain as well as cleaning the engine case, though no service records are available. A second walk-around video with the engine running is provided below.
