The design of the tank, its paint scheme, and the profile of the red trimmed seat are perfect as I have always remembered them, and, when Giovanni and Carlo invited me to see their new creation in advance of EICMA 2018, I was absolutely fascinated. The liquid-cooled MV Agusta 800cc triple, in its present Brutale Euro 4 homologated form, produces 110 hp and is much more compact and lighter than the old, air-cooled MV Agusta 750 S four which was only good for 68.5 hp. Here, the MV Agusta 800 powerplant is fitted with very marginally silenced, individual megaphone-style exhausts and open bellmouth throttle bodies that might return some extra horsepower. But it is the look and the sound that really count for the ultimate MV Agusta enthusiasts. The Magni 750 S Tributo looks smaller than the old MV Agusta 750 Sport, but in reality it spans about an extra inch of wheelbase, 56 inches against 54.7 inches. On the other hand, it is immensely lighter: 353 pounds versus 540 pounds.
