mv f4/brutale born in a harley factory...

yes, that is correct. the f4 and brutale are built in a harley davidson factory



ok, the facility in varese is a former HD factory. in a rather strange twist in history, HD (under the AMF banner) took over total ownership Aermacchi, a motorcycle and aircraft manufacturer, in 1972. aermacchi's factory was the varese plant.

in 1978, HD sold the facility to cagiva (castiglioni), and the rest we know pretty well.

so, if a harley rider every asks "what kind of bike is that?" you can tell him, "it's a cousin of your's" LOL.

Does that mean I have to drop my "elitist" attitude when riding next to Harleys?

I read the same thing in this book by Mick Walker

MV Agusta Fours The Complete Story

This book goes into the whole Agusta Family, there building of aircraft and everything. It is an amazing story.

I recall a friend had one of the AMF Harley Davidson's. It was a single cylinder 350, similar to the pic below. This was the mid 70's when most of us were riding around on RD Yamaha's or CB Hondas, so the small Harley stood out in a crowd. I took it for a spin and remember thinking that it handles quite well (for the time).
