As for MV Agusta’s rich history, the company began when work was lacking following World War II. This limited amount of workignited the interest to create MV Agusta in 1945 near Milan in Cascina Costa, Italy. The idea came from two brothers that owned the aviation company, Agusta.

In order to save jobs and build cheap transportation, Count Vincenzo Agusta and his brother Domenico created MV Agusta (MV stands for Meccanica Verghera, Mechanic and town of Verghera in Italy).
