MV Agusta 500cc Three is a road racing motorcycle made by MV Agusta to compete in the 500cc Grand Prix motorcycle racing World Championship. The motorcycle was introduced in 1966 to compete with the ever competitive Honda Racing. The bike was a bored out version of MV Agusta’s highly successful 350cc Three Cylinder. Its production lasted until 1974.
Both the 500cc and the 350cc Factory race bikes specifications, bore and stroke were veiled in secrecy. When information was leaked, MV Agusta was known to leak disinformation. Over the passing of years, MV race engineers provided information on 500cc Three cylinder.
