Better known for their racing and road-going multi-cylinder machines, MV Agusta also built a range of single and twin-cylinder sports bikes during the 1960s and 1970s.
Intermittently available throughout this period, their high price meant that they were never top sellers. This model 250B was Introduced at the Milan Show in 1967.
Of unitary construction, the engine is a compact, twin-cylinder overhead-valve unit breathing through twin 22mm Dell’Orto carburettors and featuring gear primary drive to a five-speed transmission. Claimed maximum power iss 23bhp and top speed in excess of 85mph.
They were replaced by restyled ‘square case’ equivalents for 1975.
This 250 B is in a very nicely restored condition.
