MV Agusta USA Set to Be Sold

MV Agusta USA Set to Be Sold - Asphalt & Rubber

This week brings you more MV Agusta news, as Asphalt & Rubber has learned that MV Agusta USA is set to be sold in the coming days.
The rumored buyer is Joseph Elasmar, the Australian distributor for the Italian brand, who also imports a plethora of other small-volume brands, for the Australian market.
The move is part of an ongoing process to reorganize MV Agusta USA, in order for the Italian marque to re-enter more effectively into the American two-wheeled market.
An announcement of the deal’s signing is expected in the coming days.

It's too early to know if this is a good thing or not. I believe it will be, time will tell.

Agreed. Would be interesting to know what our friends from Oz think of this importer.

Further to the Asphalt and Rubber article Canada Moto Guide adds the the following.
“As for the Canadian distributor, it’s hard to say exactly what’s going on; we’ve been told buyers will be able to purchase MV Agusta’s 2017 models in Canada this year, but it’s unclear who will control the distribution, as Motovan is no longer running it. One rumour has the Canadian business coming under the US umbrella, but we were unable to talk to anybody who would confirm or deny that gossip. Regardless, we’ve been told 2017 models have been ordered, so if you want an MV Agusta this year, you should be able to get one.”

K, Urban Moto Imports are an extremely professional company and passionate about the MV brand; they have done an extraordinary job here in Australia with absolute and meaningful support to their dealer principals and growing customer base. This philosophy and commitment to the MV brand in Oz should result in significant and positive outcomes for all things MV USA and Canada.

Joe and Alan are brothers who have a well established and professional business. These gentlemen are good friends of mine and they have taken MV to new heights in OZ. They are passionate about MV Agusta like all of us on here and that's what I think has driven them to success because they understand the consumer for this beautiful machine.

I am aware they will take over USA and Canada and im sure they will do an extremely professional and diligent job in pushing the brand into the market. You guys on the far side of the pond have nothing to worry about. Its all up from here.
