Wow that is a really interesting list.
What is Your source of it?
And Yes it is pretty obvious that Count Domenico Agusta did not make enough money with the bike production to pay for the racing team.

My source is a detailed historical account of the Mv factory published in the Italian mag, 'MotoCiclismo d'Epoca', February 2014.

Translated from the article:
"If one had to set a date to beginning of the end of Mv Agusta's exploits in motorcycling, it would have to be the February 2, 1971...the day of Domenico Agusta's passing...Motorcycles were his sole distraction, the only hobby of a man who 'gave his heart and soul to the company whatever the cost', as his colleagues said. Because of this, no one had ever dreamed of of questioning the great costs of Grand Prix racing, the delays in the helicopter assembly lines due to the demands of racing department, the economic logic of Mv's entire motorcycle sector when confronted to with the more profitable helicopter sector..."

Yes, seemed high to me, too. Perhaps as haupti says, when you include all permutations of the model?
Nice to know that there were over a 1000 four cylinders built. Still super rare but now I will actually dare to dream of owning one some day!

Thank You again and it would be great if You could scan for us the article of MotorCiclismo d'epoca.
At the 350 Bicilindrica You would have to split the 4600 units in B Sport, B Turismo, B Scrambler, BE Sport, BE Tursimo and BE Scrambler too.
For the 750 four cylinders as well in 750 Sport, 750 America, 750 Turismo and than finally some SS models with slightly increased capacity.
So it is surely with the 175 models too.

Many articles were posted here at the forum over the years.
But hey, if You are concerned about it than it is just fair to not post it.
No worries and You shared great informations already.
