Really cool and basically exactly what I thought to build with my friend.
So that basically is the end of our plans but I would love to know what Giovanni wants for the bike or the kit.

+1, thought it was just a matter of time before this happened . Wonder how expensive they will be. Very cool

If you find a wrecked 3 cylinder with a good motor and you’re into retro then I suppose this is an option.
However, It’s not just the engine but the state-of-the-art handling that make the new MV 3’s so inviting.
It sure looks purrrdy but, old world design, upright twin shocks and 18 inch wheels... I’m not feeling it.

Not as found of the naked version.



It should be fully faired.



That sump hanging down has me concerned, although I suppose it isn’t any worse then on the new bikes.

I guess it depends on how high and what angle the engine is mounted at? If it were me I'd stick some sort of sump guard on it at least. Maybe in the *3 Platfor the engine is higher/angled to bring the sump up and away from the ground?

The Ducati Monster S4Rs has the same sump "issue". 20,000 miles of riding and no damage.

ok, beside technical and design issues... ;-)

my intention is to know about the motivation to do such an effort...

Only for exhibition purpose or are they willing to sell it?

Toni, Magni has been in business since 1977. Expect this to be revealed as a kit at EICMA in Milano next week.

Also, we have at least three threads on this subject in three different sections. :ahhh:
Perhaps someone would be so kind as to merge them all into one. :)

I haven´t used the forum search...

I´d rather have a 3cyl Ago replica instead of that kit...

I never noticed. Must be all those ugly water pipes in the way ;) (I have an air cooled M600)

I really fancy a new Monster, but house and other grown up costs take over. :(

I'm with Stephen on this. Not sure I want 125 hp with these ancient 2-piston brake calipers and small discs, or the spindly forks, etc. It appears to me like a project that was not quite thought thru enough.

Nice styling exercise, though. :)

I run spoke wheels and a 4 leading shoe front brake on my F4 replica - 17,000kms and no concerns

I'd take that in heartbeat - worry about the pros & cons later, but I am wired a little different to most ;)

+1, you buy a bike like that with your heart .if you are thinking about the negatives it's not for you.
