Nearly two years ago to the day (on 8/8/08), purchased Italian manufacturer MV with the intention of extending its into the high-end sportbike Barely a year later, H-D the intention to divest themselves of the and today the Motor Company announced the finalization of the sale to MV’s former owner and Claudio Castiglioni.

There’s no word about a transaction yet, but my Harley contact me that, [Harley-Davidson] is filing the 8K SEC after market hours meaning we’ll have a price on Monday.

MV Agusta with an official statement the subject heading, MV Agusta is Again!, with a quote Mr. Castiglioni mentioning that, MV is the crown jewel of Italian I am thrilled to have completed transaction.

Though Italians reason to be triumphant about the marque’s return to its home the transaction represents a bittersweet for Harley, especially since the F4 proved to be such a shockingly superbike .

This marks the end of an era, in ways than one.

. According to the 8/10/10 edition of the Street Journal. In the filing said it contributed 20 million to MV as operating capital that was put in and is available to the buyer over a period. The buyer is Claudio who, with his brother ran MV Agusta for years before it to Harley two years ago for about million.

Harley has previously totaling $162.6 million for the value of MV Agusta and began the unit as a discontinued operation announcing its intention to sell it a ago. The company said it additional related losses discontinued operations in the third of 2010.

A footnote: There is a certain of should-have-known-better in this story. isn’t the first time has had a hard time with an acquisition. In the 1960s it bought a in Aermacchi, a maker of small bikes as a way to expand into new Eventually it bought the whole but thatmove also eventually and Harley sold Aermacchi in the 1970s.

The sellers and buyers: the brothers.

point Scottie.

Sport bikes aren’t any off…maybe worse, for a different Not sure what insurance is in most parts of the U.S. but not at all difficult here to find an company that won’t a sport bike for any amount of Those that will do it for a price are very few and far between and then if you have a spotless, free record.

No tickets, and bikes, while not mutually aren’t generally found in the sentence.

It’s not uncommon for a 17 old to be quoted $4000 to insure a hasn’t … sport here, but it’s come close.

Ducati, MV, and anything an ‘R’ in the model name is open at Ins companies..and they … they’re losing money…just the oil companies and banks.

I say if your buying a just taking in consideration the cost of insurance then you are the best.

I’ve had Sports and a Cruiser… the later are plain and I’m not talking speed here, I “flickability”, acceleration, suspension, etc

Well I’ve had a Harley and got it. That said,like FrankG it’s about the ride. are just that and most are bar it seems. 28years on Gold and needed a bit of a boos so got a VFR and a Triumph and am happy.

HD had a good sport and they dropped it. Even had josting engine. For me 5-10K $$$ and about 2-3 times the HP; that’s for me.

has not been discussed enough is castignoli or what ever he to prove himself as, is consistently hand over fist MV Agusta. This is the second he has sold it and taken it back.

The first time he sold it and it back was for one dollar in the take and now a second time; it seems he is selling it because he is trying to his losses or debt owed on the with 2 great prime when put side by side a BMW = the quality in appearance compared to any brand and the brutali is very with the upright position and But this Guy is a pariah and the Italians it.

He does not care about the Harley of Italy and no motoguzzi designing there own bikes. and this guy owns Bimota why was designing for Bimota.

He does not about MV Agusta even if he did it back he just wanted the name, just like the wanted the Indian Name. He he cared he would not have it ; and selling it twice. He is nothing but a if Motoguzzis griso and MV Agusta marquee and products were not I would spit the ground in of him truly an … in the community.

correction not designing for Bimota in he was the prime originator of in cycles. I for my typos.
