There is a special sensibility and appreciation for the details of Italian design and culture among the Japanese. Some of the world’s best collections of Lamborghinis and Abarths can be found in Japan, young pizzaioli from Tokyo have won the Pizza world cup in Naples and, if you stroll around Daikanyama on a Saturday, the elegant gentlemen in their linen suits would even outshine the ‘Pitti Peacocks’ during the Pitti Uomo fashion shows in Florence. To make it short: if there is one country that perfectly understands the meaning of sprezzatura, it must be the Japanese.
Considering this, it comes as no surprise that the collector car and bike sales of BH Auction in Tokyo often feature remarkable machines made in Italy. In the catalogue for their upcoming sale on May 29, we stumbled upon a gorgeous-looking, silver-and-red 1975 MV Agusta 750S in full racing attire. Considering the gracious proportions and stunning details of this motorbike, it comes as no surprise that it was designed by no other than Giorgetto Giugiaro, creator of iconic Italian cars such as the Maserati Ghibli, the Iso Grifo, or the Lancia Delta. Each side of the bike features beautiful Lafranconi exhausts and, according to BH Auctions, this MV Agusta is in excellent condition, with just 3.800 kilometers on the clock.
