The Filo Rosso, or the Red Line, is the symbolic thread that has always run through Magni’s work, starting with his learning from Piero Remor in the early 1950s, to being the all-round inspiration behind MV Agusta’s multiple world championships, and then going on with son Giovanni to create hand-built machines with individuality, handling prowess and charisma.
This one is no different. Ok, so it looks like an MV race bike you may say. Yes, but that’s not a bad thing, is it? And this one is powered by the MV Agusta Brutale’s rev-happy 798cc triple cylinder motor that needs a 13.000rpm red line.
Not often we want to just jump on a bike we’ve been sent pics of and just ride the bollocks off it, but this is one of those occasions. Bravo, Magni!
In Issue 6 of the mag, we published a great article that was contributed by Dave our mate from Australia all about his Ducati Cucciolos. Dave has since sent us a video clip that gives the impression of what it’s like to ride one of these machines at speed – and it’s a bit scary. Ignore the sketchy soundtrack and imagine what it’s like to sit on an old pushbike, with pushbike brakes and tyres, and a small Italian motor lashed onto the frame tube, and go as fast as you can. In fact, we reckon the wind noise is covering up Dave’s screams of terror as he bowls along at an impressive turn of speed considering he’s a big Aussie bloke!
The full article on Dave’s passion for the Ducati Cucciolo and in particular its fascinating place as a sales success in Australia is in Issue Six. Not got a copy? Buy it here: http://italianmotor.bigcartel.com/category/magazines
What an idea! Buy up a historic but mothballed RAF base, then turn it into a motoring heritage destination for cars, bikes and planes – brilliant! We’re lucky that ITALIAN MOTOR H.Q. seems to be close to so many fascinating and excellent places and events of petrolhead pleasure, and today was great – old planes mixing it with Ford Capris, Yank cars, old bikes, historic and important Bentleys, Porsches, and Jags, old blokes dressed as Home Guard, steam engines, old biplanes, engines, bacon rolls, and other very pleasurable stuff. The RAF architecture is fascinating and the before and after restorations of the countless sheds, hangars and engine fitting rooms are incredible and beautiful. Even the toilet blocks are retro! The owners should be congratulated on their vision, and it’s easy to see that it’ll become a premier motoring destination in the UK.
Every year for the last five years I have done my day job and turned up to cover the Kop Hill Climb, which is a fantastic event, and very local to me. Like a small, friendly and less manic Goodwood Revival, it surprises every year with the wonderful mix of bikes, cars and machinery that turns up, either to run up the the hill, or display in the paddock (or both..). Here’s a small selection of some of my shots to give you a flavour. All photography © ITALIAN MOTOR magazine. More on Kop Hill here.

Rockers vs Mods #6 Event Recap
Friday, March 30, 2012
Between DJ Wild in the Streets spinning Ska, Northern Soul & Rockabilly and the amazing views only the Belmont can provide it was a perfect start to the sixth annual rockers vs mods. People were mingling, grabbing the rally swag and catching up with people some hadn’t seen since last years’ event.
From there we headed to Bryan Street Tavern to continue the party.
There were people everywhere. Hanging out in the parking lot, going on rides, it was a buzz of activity.
The first band was the Dangits, then the Gorehounds rocked our asses around midnight.

The morning started slowly, the scoots met at Vespa Dallas & the Cafe Bikes gathered at RPM Cycles. We all had a little gnosh, looked at each others’ bikes and got shop tours of the respective shops. Randy at Vespa Dallas has some very nice Vic Fletchall scoots and RPM had the new Norton to ogle.
After getting some food in us, we all rode over to the event space. Then the beer, bands and merciless heat ensued. It was a great space, but hotter than balls. Luckily we had plenty of ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon to keep us cool. The food trucks were all lined up and people grabbed a beer, some food and headed for the shade!
The day went well, people hung out, went for rides, checked out the vendors. It was really hot, so we cut to the raffle so people could get out of the heat before they fell out. We found good homes for all the Corazzo Gear, Dime City Cycles, RPM Cycles, Vespa Dallas & Kyle’s Scooter Shop (we had stuff from last year).
Then we handed out the Iron!
People peeled away and got ready for the evenings’ festivities. We have to mention that all this was for $25 bucks!
From here the night got a little blurry. We won’t post up any of those pics in order to protect the guilty.
Sunday, April 1, 2012
We started the day with a long ride organized by Ron & Denver of Ace Scooter Club. They did an amazing job and even the locals got to see parts of Dallas we hadn’t seen before.
From there we headed to the Dubliner to relax and reflect on the mayhem of the weekend.
Thank you to all who showed up. This year was a ripping success and we have high hopes for the future.
We want to thank all the sponsors. Without them there would be no event.
