Harley Agusta?

Despite a first quarter. Harley-Davidson is financially solvent enough to buying most of the troubled boutique builder MV Agusta, to a Forbes story cited by for Leather Magazine .

MV Agusta a rich history that an astounding 37 world Grand titles (14 of which were by Giacomo Agostini), but the Italian builder is in debt to the tune of 95 euros. Forbes indicates Harley hopes to write off 35% of debt, when and if such a occurs.

This news comes I recently tested MV’s (but not sold out) superbike, the F4CC. You’ll my thoughts in an upcoming review, but in the what do you think could if the 105 year-old American legend the 63 year-old Italian sportbike

Hmmmmm….Kinda mating a Ferrari with a Ferguson. You end up with a really stupid fast hay bailer – or – a antique Enzo.

I don’t see much good out of it….I bet in a couple years H-D be desperate to unload MV, much MB couldn’t wait to lose the anchor.

What possible could MV be expecting. An established network? “Hi there….do you sell leather MV chaps?”

If H-D was smart, climb in to bed with someone who drag them in to the late century…an exotic Italian it!

Ya know… in the 1960s Harley Aermacchi, and their expertise at small bikes helped to draw a new audience of riders who want or need big V-twins. If can figure out the whole sportbike (without resorting to a gussied up cruiser like the V-Rod), could have one foot in the bike world and another in the world.

Seems like wouldn’t be bad for H-D, and what way to mix up the gene pool than to some seriously dissimilar

I don’t know about the network being a big help. even found it odd to see Buells at H-D

I think the Buell connection sense… if a …-hard Harley fan is to migrate towards another of bike, they’re more to do it if there’s an air-cooled twin

My guess is their vision MV involves something deeper just a dealer network. mating a V-Rod with a it’s kind of like a great dane with a the possibilities are endless!


I don’t know Aermacchi did H-D any good…they sold a of those really awful was about it.


Aermacchi was a merger on paper than it was in but I’d imagine the potential for innovation is different nowadays. Look at how it took for Ducati to get in the black; knew they could a great bike, but they the infrastructure to do it right.
