Nice...

Mao? Who's Mao?

So Noneyet, named so because he had no MV Agusta in the garage when he joined the forum. Brutale 910 R has been sold, so now maybe he's "had one".

I can't wait to see the MV knockoffs, it'll be pretty amusing.

Oh boy, what a disaster. A customer can't even get anyone to confirm different spring rates from MV, yet with greed in their eyes MV gladly gives up all intellectual property rights to China. Although, we had to know this was coming at some point.
Japanese manufacturers have enough trouble keeping their own bikes assembled with chinese parts on the road. So who wants to be the first bloke to buy a Chinese made Agusta? Ugh does that sound awful to say. Just make sure you buy the premium warranty and have your life insurance policy up to date.

Oh dear! oh dear!! oh dear!!!

So It looks as if the Varese worshiping die hards are going to have to look elsewhere to satisfy their need.

I did hear about this deal a while back, so MV Agusta is going to get the Chinese touch after all like most other things it seems.

Like I discussed with a good pal of mine a few years ago "Not everything that comes from China is crap"

Pretty soon all MV will be built in China and then shipped to the rest of the world. I hope I am wrong.

Just for you to know, the first "brazilian" MVs have already been assembled and are being tested on the roads, they will start selling them in december.

I have to say that I'm really happy with this operation here in Brazil. Today it is almost impossible to buy MVs here and sometimes it makes me laugh when some guys here in the forum say that the F3 Oro or the F4RR are expensive: I paid US$ 29k for my 2008 Brutale 910 S!!! I hope this situation will change now as the bikes will no longer be imported.

And as all the parts are coming from Italy and will only be assembled here, I don't think will have quality issues. Let's see.

Don't count on buying a Chinese MV outside of China. The demand for name-brand manufactured goods is China is so strong that it will more profitable to sell all units built in Chana within China rather than export them elsewhere. What you will see is parts coming out of China for use in Italy/Brazil assembled bikes. It's not about where the parts are made, its the quality control of the manufacturer. MV better incoming quality control better be on top of their game because everything coming out of China is shit weather or not it's passed China's quality standards.

I think everyone should go out a buy a bike now before they go to crap.

Wow, this happened on 3rd July and only breaks lose now, well kept secret.

Perhaps a new beginning for MV, things may come out good.

China already owns usa, why not let it own MV as well

think about it
