Jay Leno Shows His 1976 MV Agusta 750 America [Video]
This time he's about one truly rare and wonderful racing-themed vintage machine: a 1976 MV Agusta 750 America.
Retailing back then for a whopping $6,000, this Italian bike still proudly displays its racing heritage. The MV Agusta 750 America boasts a massive 4-cylinder 4-carburetor in-line engine with the sound of an Italian sportscar, low-swung handlebars in the vein of old cafe-races, a tall and assertive rear cowl and a spartan racing stripe paint job that speaks for itself.
Hear Jay Leno tell the story of this awesome beast and enjoy the furious grunt of this bike's engine when being ridden in the high revs, and agree that the “Ferrari of motorcycles” moniker is not a marketing exaggeration.
