Arturo Magni, (24 September 1925 – 2 December 2015) began his career in the motorcycle sector in 1947 in the Gilera Racing Department. In 1950 he moved to MV Agusta’s racing department and remained there until MV retired from competitions in 1977, when he had reached the position of Team Manager and Technical coordinator of Reparto Corse.
In 1977, together with his sons Carlo and Giovanni, he started his own business building special parts for the MV Agusta range of motorcycles in his workshop, the Elaborazioni Preparazioni Magni (EPM). In particular, the most challenging transformation and most in demand by customers consists in replacing the heavy shaft drive of the four cyclinder 750 with a more sporty chain drive. Later he built his first chassis, in Cr-Mo tubes, around the four-cylinder MV Agusta. This frame was based on the Magni designed MV F750 S Imloa racer.
EPM were one of the world’s first suppliers of aftermarket cast alloy wheels. Carlo Magni developed this side of the business and it was spun off into a separate business, leaving Arturo and Giovanni to continue building motorcycles under the Magni name.
This original 1100 Sfida was a café racer styled machine used the Le Mans engine that had been fitted with a 1,100 cc big bore kit. A hand made chassis was fitted with the “Parallelogramo” swinging arm. Front forks from Forelle Italia, rear shock absorbers from Koni and Brembo Gold Line brakes were fitted.
The Sfida 1100 was updated in 1997 to the Sfida 1100 ie Biposto. The updated machine was fitted with Paioli front forks and the Moto Guzzi “Electronic Fuel Injection” engine rather than the carburettors of the previous model
