I have a question. I am aware of an 850 SS for sale in my native Denmark. It is supposed to be a special version of the 850 SS with 846 cc which is different from the standard 837 cc. It is supposed to have a different oil pump, pistons etc.

Supposedly on 5 of these were ever made. It has 2.200 km on it! It comes with original tools, documentation etc.

Does anyone know anything about this supposedly very special model.

I have several photos I can e-mail.

Rgds.

Hi. Yes that is the exact bike. I just tried searching for the one in UK but couldn't find it. I believe the asking price is around 60k Euros which seems very high. I don't know about the thing about only 5 of this specific type ever made.

Hi. The one on E-bay is a Magni version of an MV 750. This is not the same as the one offered in DK. Nice bike though.

Here's a bit more info you may have already seen, you are correct Uskusa, in that the 'standard' 850SS had a 837cc motor, what differences the 846cc model has, wouldn't in my opinion justify the high price tag. It depends on your point of view, but one of the later Magni bikes (bearing in mind Arturo Magni was one of the leading lights at Cascina Costa di Verghera) would be my preferred option. If someone leaves me £18,000 in their will, I will (no pun intended) be purchasing the bike on ebay. :) BTW they were referred to as Boxers until Ferrari complained and they reverted to the name Monza.

A Magni MV is different to a MV which Magni did mods to. The Magni MV is basically a new bike using a 750 4c MV engine. Works comprise frame, seat, tank, fairing, brakes, engine, etc. he also worked on 'standard' MVs doing mods such as chain drive conversion, engine kits tuning.

I understand the ebay UK bike has had the Magni mods done as opposed to being a Magni

There were some other people around who did similar work to Magni with the MV fours as a basis. Kay, Hansen, Bold and Corona. www.thebikemuseum.com has more info re these bikes and possibly a picture of an original 850 SS (with about 48 kms on it)

Yes, my apologies a 1976 bike would be a 750 America base. I'd still like to own it though. :)

We tend to have the modern MV's here Max, but if you check the registry people like JSM and GTW36 have older MV's like yours. :smoking: I'd really love to own a 750S America as it was the first road going MV I ever saw in the flesh. :king: It's great to have owners of the older bikes here as well as the modern ones, we look forward to your riding impressions and of course more photos, when you are able to get out on her. BTW the Benelli? is it a 750 or a 900, I used to have a 900 myself many moons ago. :)
