The Magni Australia is a legendary Italian superbike from the mid-1990s that was named after Australia, thanks to the remarkable collaboration between Ted Stolarski and his racing team from Perth, Western Australia, and Magni, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer. The bike boasts a bespoke Magni tubular steel frame with a Magni-designed Parallelogramo swing arm, and it is powered by a Moto Guzzi V-twin engine with a single overhead cam operating four valves per cylinder.


Founded in 1977 by Arturo Magni, a legendary motorcycle engineer who had worked on Gilera and MV Agusta race bikes, Magni is one of the most revered names in the history of specialist Italian motorcycle manufacturing. After MV Agusta retired from racing in 1976, Magni began producing performance parts for MV Agusta motorcycles before building high-performance motorcycles around engines from various manufacturers.


In the early 1990s, Stolarski collaborated with Magni and used two new Moto Guzzi 4V-OHC engines to build race bikes, achieving excellent results. Inspired by these two motorcycles, the Magni Australia was named after them, with 75 made in the first series followed by 50 second-generation bikes later in the 1990s.


This Magni Australia has a special place in Moto Guzzi history, as it is powered by the same engine that also powered the Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000. This bike is one of the first 75 produced, finished in the classic red, white, and silver livery, and features a pair of Termignoni carbon-fiber slip-on mufflers, triple Brembo disc brakes, and the racing number #1 on the tail, with the names “Magni Guzzi” and “Australia” on the faring. With just 15,553 kms (approximately 9,664 miles) on the odometer, this rare and legendary bike is a must-have for motorcycle collectors.
