Surely one of the finest examples of combining old and new is the the Filo Rosso by Italian garagistes Magni. The original bike released a few years back was an homage to the rapid, beautiful built and oh so gloriously sounding MV Agustas piloted by none other than Giacomo Agostini. Click the images below to expand.
Based on the MV Agusta 800cc triple from the Brutale, the Magni offers nostalgic exotica with modern performance. Ever wondered what that engine (the smaller 675) sounds like uncorked? Turn your headphones up and listen to this
The Black Edition is the latest from Magni, still a Filo Rosso but now with a moodier paint scheme and Öhlins Blackline suspension. Check the full spec here.
We hope to have a more in depth feature soon but for now find out more about the Magni History on their website and enjoy these photos by Alex Olgiati
And if you need a little more convincing.... listen to the screaming four-bangers hammering down Bray Hill and wait for the real orchestra at the end - Speakers up!
