When MV Agusta debuted the “Pullman” at the second-tier Brussels Show in January 1953, it was assumed that the company would make a cuople of thousand and then the model would fade away. Fortunately for MV the “Pullman” was a roaring succes. With the comfort of a scooter, the look of a serious light motorcycle, and priced aggressively, the public took the “Pullman” like a long-lost relative. Balloon tires gave it a “big-bike”  look, but underpinnings were strictly simple; the “Ovunque” scooters driveline was fitted into the “Pullman” simple, rugged, tubular frame. The front suspension was a conventional telescopic fork, while the rear was a swingarm arrangement built into the engine with two intregrated arms, a hydraulic central shock absorber and two lateral mechanic shock absorbers. The transmission was a twist-grip gear selector on the handlebars. Depending on options, the price range was 155,000 to 163,000 Lira.
