How to decipher a VIN

Does anyone know how to do this? The owners manual deciphers the first three, the model, (convenient if you have an F4) and the last few. What do all those letters in the middle mean?

I know the 10th character/number denotes the year the bike is made.

Thanks, Ari, I knew about the 10th digit. So, ZCG is MV Agusta. Then AJFLT2, the 5 is for 2005, a V and the last digits 100415 must be the production number.

I wonder what the AJFLT2 and the V mean?

CAG,
Check this website. This one explains it VIN numbers for cars, but the same applies for motorcycles too.

Maybe the V means that it wanted to be a V8 at one time in it's life.

Thanks! This helps a lot. CG=Cagiva? V=Varese? AJFLT must be some sort of code for Brutale.

Thanks again.
