Buyers rumored to be circling MV Agusta

From DealerNews.com
Publish date: May 17, 2010







Online rumors are flying that Harley-Davidson has found a buyer for MV Agusta.
Reports say likely buyers for the company are Claudio Castiglioni and Federico Minoli. The buyer would be getting a bargain-basement price, rumored at $43 million, on the money-losing unit H-D bought in 2008 for $109 million.
Castiglioni revived MV Agusta (and Ducati, Husqvarna and Cagiva) in the late í80s and early í90s and has been running the Italy-based company for Harley. Castiglioni and Massimo Tamburini are responsible for Ducatiís 916 and the MV Agusta F4, according to the South African Web site Wheels24. He is reported to have the backing of Italyís Intesa San Paolo bank.

Minoli, who reportedly has private equity backing, turned Ducati around after Cagiva sold the brand in 1996, and headed the company as CEO and eventually president of its operations until resigning 2007, the Web site says.

It goes without saying that Castle & CAG would be the preferred owners of MV, but failing that it would be nice to see it going back to being Italian owned.
