The Magni name is very famous in motorcycle field because it is legacy to the manufacturing Company of more famous motion of the world: the MV Agusta. Arthur Magni begins to work on the motorcycles in 1947 near the unit run of the Gilera under the guide of the Ing. Remor. E' one of the mechanics who assemble the first Gilera motor to four cylinders. In 1950 Arthur Magni it passes to the unit run of MV the Agusta and you it remains until when the MV are withdrawn from the competitions; it covers loads with run head of the unit. During the years in which Magni she is the Run responsible of the Unit, to the guide of the MV Agusta all are alternated the best pilots, Agostini, Surtees, Hailwood, Ubbiali......; the M.V.Agusta gains 75 tito them world-wide ones very (38 pilots and 37 Marches). When the M.V. Agusta is withdrawn from the competitions, Magni, with to the sons, begins one new activity.
In 1977 the Magni company is born. All the derived experience gives more beyond 25 years of job near the titolato unit run of the world is available in order to develop new products for the motorcycles. The activity begins with the special pieces production in order to transform the M.V.Agusta motion from road: kit transformation final transmission from rebukes to chain, kit cylinders and pistons for maggiorare the piston displacement, fairings, saddle backs, systems of drainage...
After little time the first chassis for motor M.V. to four cylinders is planned, realized in steel tubes chromium-molybdenum and knit to T.I.G.. This chassis remarkably increases the characteristics of guide of the motorcycle. Still today M.V.Agusta motorcycle is possible to restore one with pieces produced from Magni, or to always construct one retort of the motorcycles from competition using a street motor four cylinders.
To the beginning of years ' 80 a motor Honda 900 Bol d' Or to four cylinders is constructed to the first Magni motion using. E' produced in two versions: " MH1 ", without using fairing and many particular of the motion originates them like the wheels and the staple, and " MH2 " complete version with fairing where it comes used exclusively the Honda motor. This model is produced in approximately 300 exemplary.
In 1982-1983 a new chassis is studied adapted for motor BMW boxer 1000cc.; like for the Honda, also this model is produced in two versions " MB1 " and " MB2 ", the first economic and the second one complete. This model is produced in solo 150 exemplary since in the meantime the BMW puts production outside the motor boxer having introduced the new model series "K".
In 1985 it begins the cooperation with the Guzzi Motion.
Chosen E' this motor because completely Italian the Magni Customer wants one motion. The first produced model calls " LeMans " with integral fairing, modern lines. For this motorcycle a new system is planned of posterior suspension: the parallelogram.
With this new one it arranges all the reactions induced from the transmission are eliminated; a motorcycle with final transmission is come true to rebukes but that motion to chain has dowries of guide similar to one. Similar systems are then adopt to you also from other constructors of motion.
In the 1987 are introduce two new models to you " Classic 1000 " and " Arthur 1000 " with a new style. These models have produced lines that remember the motion in years ' 70; wheels to beams, stainless steel mudguards polish to you, large round finale and absence of integral, single fairing the model " Arthur 1000 " has a semi-fairing that completely leaves in sight the motor.
The production of one motorcycle with retro style and accessories first quality; a large run happened.
In 1989 characterized Challenge 1000 "from Italian the typical lines of the motion of years ' 60 is commercialized a new called model", with the tank realized by hand in aluminum.
In 1990 new motion is produced one, in run version, using the Guzzi motor to four valves for cylinder. This motion is used from some importers in order to participate to classified competitions to motion with motors to two cylinders. The Australian importer obtains lusinghieri always turns out to you placing in all the race from the first one to the sixth place. bullet 28/09/90 - Kambalda, West Australia - Thunder bike race - 2°; bullet 4/10/90 - Merredine, West Australia - Formula one - 4°; 27/10/90 - Wanneroo, West Australia - Formula one - 5° - and Open four stroke - 3°, bullet 3/11/90 - Wanneroo, West Australia - Thunder bike - 1°; bullet 10/12/90 - Winton race way, Victoria - Thunder bikes B.E.A.R.S. - 4°; bullet 26/12/90 - Wanganui - New Zealand - B.E.A.R.S. THUNDER BIKES 2° - and Formula one - 4°; bullet 25/03/91 - Manfield - New Zealand - B.E.A.R.S. THUNDER BIKES - 2°; bullet 11/04/91 - Pukekohe, New Zealand - B.E.A.R.S. THUNDER BIKES - 2°.
For this reason the motion is called " Australia ".
This model has modern lines much second set up the tendencies of the motion used in the race Superbike. From this model from race an entered street model in production to aim 1993 is gained. Street Australia is identical to the model competition, modernized exclusively with system electrical worker, slilenziatori, and accessories in order to render it suitable to I use on road.
In 1995 Challenge 1100 "with carburetor motor enters in production the model". For this model a new chassis with characteristics still improved is planned. The new model of 1997 is the " two-seat Sfida 1100 i.e. ", modernized version of " Challenge 1100 " using the new motor to injection and with the two-seat version. To fine1997 Challenge is introduced the model "1000 4v " using version motor 1000 to four valves. In the 1998 they will be commercialized the modernized version " Australia ' 98 ", using the new motor to four valves from 102 horses and the new chassis with inclination of steering to 24°, and the model " Japan 52 ", model in limited series, in order to celebrate the recurrence of the 20 years of activity of the Magni Company and the 50 years of activity of the Company Fukuda import Motors of the Magni motion for the Japanese market.
The 15 September 1999 e' be officially introduced on the situated Internet  the new Magni model for year 2000.
The "Sport is born Nasce 1200 S ", this model constitutes the return of the production Magni to an old love, the motors to 4 cylinders.
In fact after the models constructed on bases MV Agusta and Honda Bol d' Or, the new model uses the motor of Suzuki GSX 1200 Inazuma.
Characteristic of the new model is the resumption of the Italian lines of most classic of the motion of the year-end ' 60, first years ' 70: MV the Agusta 750S.
Beside the new model it continues the production of the models with motor Guzzi Motion with the models Challenge 1100 i.e., Australia, 52 Japan and Challenge 4V.
