On the older limited bikes. The last 4 of the VIN number should match the number on the triple clamp. This would be the first step to look at.

If I am correct the spr is a solo seat not a plus one, smells of shit!!!!! leave it where it is. If you want an spr there is one in Suffolk and one in north wales and both are legite.

This has been discussed in other threads. Sometimes, not always from what I remember. Itís true for the F4 and B4 Oro bikes, the first 300 made had the matching number on the triple clamp plate. I think it mayíve been true for the tambo. Donít think so for the Sennas and Ago. My 2006 Ago has last five in the VIN as 00012. The cert and triple clamp plate have it as 29/300 of the Ago series.

That's why I said the first step. If it matched then you know it is true. If not, then you have more research.

The SR also has the close ratio gearbox, (SPR engine) and same Sachs Rear shock as SPR. The SR's are supposedly also a limited run, but have no number on the triple clamp, just a plaque with "SR"
I have been trying to track as many as I can of the SR's -- So far I have found a total of 44 world wide .. Probably the rarest of all MV 750 .. They were literally the last of the 750'ies --
Very clearly built from "the Parts Bin" at MV -- Mine came from the factory with an ORO CF seat unit, adjustable ORO footrests and a Black PVD coated Showa front fork. This is the only MV I have seen with this "option"

The SR was to be the Ago....but the 1000 was ready to go so plans changed.

Ian in North Carolina has an SR he rescued from neglect a couple of years ago. His has the Ago signature on the clock face. Do you have that one on your list?

Only the Veltros are more rare.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Go to the Design Corse website instead.
Thank you , it's a pity because it was a good website, decent pricing and a fantastic inventory, of course worthless if they can't deliver!

It is not that they are simply "not liked" here; it is that they have ripped of many people for thousands of dollars.
That's terrible, seems to be a lot of shysters out there in the MV world as below!!

I am sure that SPR is a fake, it is only a standard F4 750 dressed up, and I am quite certain they were selling the fake F4 ORO. Also some of their adverts seem to be worded to be misleading in my opinion.
Maybe trading standards or someone should be having a gander(look) at them.

With the older bike values going up, and the special editions asking silly money? Any buyer really needs to take care and do full research.
Couldn't agree more. I have no interest in an SPR therefore had not researched them. I feel daft putting up that link now, the Veltro there does look to be legit. The descriptions look largely pasted of wiki. I wonder if he's been screwed when buying them or if he's having those bikes painted up himself. They even have a plaque of sorts so someone is trying to pass them off.

Thanks. No SPR for me but useful for someone else.

Again, interesting stuff.

Thank you folks. Does anyone recommend a site that sells genuine MV stuff or is that all obsolete now. I notice the original carbon fairings were made by ART in Teramo Italy. I used to work in Teramo for a year about 20 years ago. I wonder if anyone has ever contacted them. They made the original carbon tanks etc on the early special parts bikes.

Another question, how different are the rear subframes between a mono and biposto. Would a monoposto rear fairing fit the biposto? Is it just the foot pegs that are the difference, do they weigh much more ie reinforced on the biposto?

Thanks,
Nito

You can put a mono rear fairing directly on a bi sub......

I like these people in the UK for MV parts: https://www.bike-parts-mv.com/ you click on the model then on the parts sub section it is easy to use, and the service from them is decent.

Nito, check the sponsor pages. I check it first whenever I need anything. One of the companies is a tech adviser to MV Agusta SBK. The rest know their MV stuff very well. In terms of shysters, the MV community is very small and I can only think of one company who I wouldn't do business with, apart from the above mentioned, and the owner doesn't post here often.
