Harley's announcement today about MV Agusta

Here is the announcement from Harley Davidson concerning MV Agusta - apparently they have found more than one "potential buyer":

Discontinued Operations
The Company is in discussions with potential buyers regarding its previously announced intention to sell MV Agusta. For the first quarter of 2010, Harley-Davidson, Inc. incurred a $35.4 million loss from discontinued operations, comprised of operating losses as well as a fair value adjustment of $28.6 million net of taxes. Including discontinued operations, the Company reported earnings per share of $0.14.

Me too, but I'm sure the influx of cash and quality (in terms of overall reliability) will be a lot better (from a Japanese company) than what struggling Harley had to offer during the short time.

But the direction from a design perspective could be a potential source for concern. But most half intelligent companies will know not to meddle with what works.

Guess we won't know until final announcements are made.

With Harley in charge who knows what would be ahead for MV? There management is just that, managers, not riders. Lets hope for the best!
