Originally a manufacturer of airplanes and helicopters, in 1945 Count Domenico Agusta spun-off part of his familys eponymous company into the now-legendary motorcycle concern, MV Agusta.

Within eight months of beginning production, MV Agusta bikes were contesting top-flight races across war-torn Europe. Shortly thereafter, the marque went racing in earnest with its own factory-supported team, and under this banner MV Agustas dual overhead-cam singles, triples, and four-cylinder models dominated international racing from the 1950s through to the 1970s. By the time that they closed their works racing program in 1976, MV Agusta had accrued a record 37 championships in just 30 years. Statistically, these incredible sport models reman among the most successful machines to ever go racing, and MV Agustas model lineup always contained generous references both stylistically and mechanically to the racing machines upon which they earned their world-beating pedigree.

The final model in MV Agustas long line of limited-production sport bikes is the 750S America, and its creation was strictly due to lobbying by two of the companys most important US-based agents, Chris Garville and Jim Cotherman during fall 1974. By early 1975, a crack team at MV had evolved the existing 750 Sport, or 750S, into the 750S America, a limited-edition luxury sport bike tailored for the American market with more power, a larger 790-cubic-centimeter engine, angular styling that borrowed from MV Agustas contemporary race bikes, as well as distinct features that met US-market requirements, such as a left-side shifter, turn signals, and air filters.

At more than $6,000, the model was nearly three times more expensive than its nearest Japanese competitors. For such a princely sum buyers received an exclusive, hand-built, technologically advanced sport bike which was lightweight, powerful, maneuverable, and sounded like nothing else on the road thanks to its quad-megaphone exhaust.

Acquired by the Dare to Dream Collection in May 2014, this 1976 750S America was originally delivered new to Cothermans C&D Garage of Freeport, Illinois via Garvilles MV Agusta distributorship. The fourth example of the model produced, it is desirably fitted with chrome exhausts, wire wheels, and the full dustbin fairing which remains coveted by collectors today. By 1985, this 750S America had been acquired by its last prior owner and interred within their Connecticut-based collection of significant Italian sport bikes. At time of cataloguing, it indicates fewer than 10,000 miles, and it retains its numbers-matching engine per its certificate of origin.

Featuring pure, and evocative Italian styling that few sport bikes can match, the 750S America is on every serious collectors shortlist.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/auctions/dd24/.
