12-7-16 Update: This Magni did not get any action at $30k, so now the seller has relisted it at a still-not-affordable $26,500 or best offer
Magni is probably best known for the incredible bikes it made in partnership with MV Agusta, but over the years they also did some work with engines from BMW, Honda, and Moto Guzzi. MG’s 1,100cc engine provided the heart of the Sfida that you see here today.
Sfida is Italian for “challenge”, which is exactly what you’ll face if you ever have to source cosmetic parts for this bike. But it doesn’t get much better in the world of obscure Italian sport bikes, does it? Some Sfidas were fuel injected, others had carbs, and all were powered by a Guzzi 1,100cc V-Twin that’s tilted slightly to the right inside a chromoly frame to align the driveshaft correctly. Suspension is taken care of by 40mm Ceriani forks and a WP shock. For more information, check out this “Quick Ride” from Cycle World’s time with a prototype.
This example has 3,800 miles and it’s had one owner. The seller (different from the owner) says it’s from 2000 but I don’t believe that’s correct. There are some modifications but all the original parts are included.
