Factory Tour

I’m going to be touring through France and Italy with a few friends and planning to visit Lake Varese with of course a stop at the MV factory.. sadly however I received a very curt reply to my email to say MV Agusta will not be able to receive us at all as all factory tours have been suspended. Very disappointed by the response.

Has anyone got any contact details of individuals at MV? Might be worth another plea rather than going through the [email protected] address.

We are still going ahead with the trip, and will call in to the factory on the of chance someone will be sympathetic at the gate!

We’ll also visit Moto Guzzi which is an hour up the road and I understand they do daily factory tours.

Tried to book a tour for our Dolomites tour last year and got a reply that they were fully booked for the rest of the summer. If you're planning factory tours, for any marque, I reckon it would pay to at least enquire well in advance unless their website says you can just turn up.

I wouldn't be surprised if its simply an issue of guarding trade secrets and public relations. Its a competitive market after all. Cameras come in such small formats its easy to snag production shots and audio. --might also be an insurance issue. I wouldn't take it personally now or ever.

Stick to brewers or wineries.

Not worried... still heading to that part of Italy. The MV factory tours are usually held on Thursdays, but couldn't get our itinerary to work with that, so asked if we could visit another day.
Clearly there is an issue where all visits have now been stopped..Will call at the gate on the off chance that the situation has changed in June.
Don't worry, breweries are often frequented!!

The factory is closed at present for their Winter break...the Production line is inactive - hence the Tours being on-hold until the Factory re-opens. Regrettably, I believe it's simply a timing challenge.

Cheers

@cruiser,

Hello,

As I am anxiously waiting for the delivery of a TVL, ordered at the beginning of last November, will they start production again anytime soon ?

Hi Evert, I am sorry but I don't know that information ...the new TVL and TV RC with SCS look gorgeous though !

Your Dealer should be able to provide an ETA ?
