Any fan of motorcycle culture has heard of the Tourist Trophy racing days of the 1960’s and ‘70s. And we’ll bet those same individuals remember the name of Giacomo Agostini, winner of 13 Grand Prix championships and 10 Isle of Man TT’s during that time frame. Now, in conjunction with MV Agusta, Deus Ex Machina introduces The Ago TT, a tribute to commemorate such a golden era of motorcycle racing, and the riders who competed with style.
At first glance, you’ll notice this bike was built specifically for the track. That means no headlights, no turn signals, no license plates. Instead, it features a custom Chromoly subframe, a handmade aluminum tank, 520 final drive conversion, hand-made triple clamps thanks to Durelle Racing, Rizoma rear seats and LSL clip on bars from Spieler. The goal here was to make a contemporary Grand Prix bike with that ‘70s vintage look. MV Agusta is known today for their expertise in bike manufacturing, which made the final build of this Brutale 800rr something to truly behold for fans of the era. Oh, and apparently it rides like a champ as well.
