This is a bike that I like a lot = V2 Suzuki engine with a MV Agusta tubular chassis :rolleyes:
When I bought the bike a car had run in to the back of the bike bending the rearframe, braking the DME box.
The first thing I ad on mind to do on this bike was improve suspensions changing forks, swingarm and brakes

Suzuki frame, gixxer front end, MV frame, Cagiva really doesn't have much to do with it anymore. Maybe it should be the EVT Especial.

When did MV Agusta ever make a V-twin engine, to have made a frame to fit one? It might have come from the same Italian factory as MV Agusta buys their frames from, but I suspect that is where the similarity in design ends.
