Viable, yes, but desirable? What I(and I'm sure I'm not alone!) want to see is a buyer who will strive to keep MV unique; a buyer like this may( and I repeat, MAY) use the name as a front for inferior products. I just hope at the end of this scenario that the company is still true to it's history & heritage.

The older I get, the faster I was!

Ask KTM and look at their productline.

I dont even know if I have ever SEEN a KTM on the street....and it's not exactly because they are exlusive bikes...

May you live as long as you want, but not want as long as you live

I think that would be great Then the dealers of ducati would have both the brands to offer. Would suit me just perfect. And we all know Ducati knows what they are doing when it comes to parts supply and accesories. The best from twos and fours

I would rather have that then bajajajaj
