The MV Agusta 125 SOHC was a motorcycle produced by MV Agusta as a "Catalog" racer for the public in 1953. Privateer racers could purchase this race bike and could be highly competitive with a machine that was very similar to MV Agusta's works built motorcycles. The motorcycle was a considerable success and remained in production until 1956.

    In 1953 many racers adopted the dustbin fairing design on the MV 125 Dohc. The dustbin was a very large fairing that was built with air flow in mind. In 1957 the dustbin fairing was abolished due to riders being injured when strong crosswinds literally blew the racers off the track.
