MAKES No SENSE

The company won their last Grand Prix in 1976 and by the 1980 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season they were out of racing. Shortly thereafter, they ceased motorcycle production. Between 1948 and 1976 MV Agusta motorcycles had won over 3000 races and 63 World Championships overall. After MV Agusta left the racing scene in 1980.

Seeing as though MV won 75 Titles. I don't see how this can be a true statement.

The last season of any MV Agusta in GP racing was 1976.
Agostini rode the 350 and 500 occasionally.
He won the last 350 Grand prix for MV in Assen 1976 and the last ever 500 Grand Prix at the Nürburgring 1976.
I made years ago an excel file to have an overview how many stars could be possibly on the tank of a specific model year of the production bikes.

I like the spread sheet, however MV dropped out of GP in '80 their last title was '76 m not refuting that they won 75 I just don't understand how while there last title came in '76 and they started in '49 where he 63 figure comes in to play.

The Italians lie? Really? I mean it has all the wins on that decal for my air box. It must be true.

And I'm still convinced all those motorcycle magazines have defective dyno's.
