1956 MV Agusta Disco Volante



You can see why this voluptuous 1956 175cc MV Agusta was called the “flying saucer,” or “Disco Volante.” The bulge in the tank had a practical purpose—to hold more petrol—but in typical fashion, the Italians accomplished the goal in the most elegant way possible.

This model became a best seller for MV, thanks to itsgood looks and15 hp engine that could reach 8,800rpm and 84mph. You can see this gorgeous bike on display now at Moto Talbott, along with 11 other MVs, dating from 1951 to 2007.
