The 'Squalo's' (Shark) 175cc single-cam engine was housed in a frame derived directly from MV Agusta’s racing bikes. Some of the features unique to the 'Squalo”'included an external magneto rather than a flywheel ignition system, and an Earles fork of the triangular type with exposed springs. The bike was developed from a prototype that, in the hands of Libanori, won its debut at Trento on the 22th of July, 1954, when it was still fitted with flywheel Magneto ignition with a trembler on the left side.. Finned alloy brake drums were substantial for the day, with 180 mm used in the front, 150 mm in the rear. Top speed was substantial as well; 150 Kph was well above the normal MV Agusta range. In 1955, a DOHC kit was approved by the factory and could be obtained over the counter and installed by the owner.
