So the faster the sale of MV the faster operating funds are going to be available?

Cool

Humm that means prices of our bikes will go up Demand vs Supply?

That was bound to happen, as HD never belived in MV on the first place as a brand.

Intersting report in deed. But as I read it does HD report production of Buell has discontinued and they try to sell MV. In their earning reports and forcast they indicate MV Agusta as "discontinued operation". And this for the last four quarters. This says nothing about the operations of the out sourced MV Agusta or that they seized production or seized at all to exist.

I have a 08 312R for sale for $30K hahaha. Discontinued means my value went up!!! You cant even buy one! Just messing Im a little well a LITTLE smarter than that. I think well in the field I'm in When Production started money is already set aside for R&D then as it goes throught the process more money is added to the pot to finalize and then the additional funds are put in when something is announced or put to the market (usually) The cost from start to finish of anything is astronomical but good money men put the money up just before its due (no sense in losing it all at once). So I would say that the absolute minimum will be made and imported or exported. Once that money is commited it can not be retracted because the wheels have turned and then bills are immediately made.

So I think a few people will see there new F4 show to them others will be delayed or maybe this is the end?
