'The Tevere was more of a sports machine with a much lower weight of 120kg dry as against 160kg (of the 250 Raid). This meant that acceleration times were much improved and that the smaller mount's response was akin to an agile racer.' Mick Walker, 'MV Agusta'. Introduced at the Milan Show in 1959, the 232cc Tevere sportster arrived at its somewhat unusual engine capacity of 232cc by combining the 62mm stroke of MV's overhead-valve 175cc singe with the 250 Raid's 69mm bore. Mick Walker reckoned that the Tevere was the most attractive MV of its era and few would disagree, though despite its good looks the model was produced for less than two years in its native Italy, being built under license in Spain thereafter. Representing an exciting opportunity to acquire one of the rarest of MV singles, this original Tevere is offered from a private collection in Italy and is sold strictly as viewed. The machine comes with Italian registration papers.
