An IPO huh? This will mark the 4th time the Castiglionis have been bailed out or third?

It looks like the passion for the MV brand is weaker than the passion for the MV Euro.. Maybe MV is heading in the direction that Ducati took some years ago and will no longer be a niche motorcycle brand in the market place..

Time will tell

I’m beginning to think this word “Passion” actually has two meanings..

The first meaning : intense or overpowering emotion ( Rob !) for something or someone and the second meaning : a pretence of loving something with great emotion when in actual fact the only emotion is how much financial benefit can be gained from that thing.

All of you mocked me when i said that are taking the exclusivity out of the company ..... and that Mv will just be a brand name ...... its a shame what company can we look to for that dream bike rarity that seems to be something of the past? Bimota? Is that it?

There's a chance you may be able to buy into the company.....

Thanks Johhny, nice of you to use me as a yardstick to quantify a meaning

This doesn't surprise me, when I spoke with Giovanni in 2010 he gave me the impression that financial stability and sustainability would be paramount in the future of MV under his stewardship.

Sad in a way but a reality in this world, it is get yourself into that position or perish. There is no more room for artisan motorcycle builders, certainly not as a global business concern.

I guess I have a few years to make peace with it and rationlise it as imperative to future existence whilst not ideal better than the years between 1976 and 1999.

Bizarre that he also seems to have been appointed to the board. As an EVP, he is what is called 'management'. Management runs the day to day business (usually not farther than 18 months out). The Board is focused on long term strategy (1 to 5 years out). He seems to be appointed to both ? Not a good example of corporate governance.
And then the other thing...Italian banking background ? I hope they did a good background check.

I hear where you're coming from Rob and agree.. The one thing MV needs to concentrate on before any future plans for expansion, is their parts supply infrastructure and to make sure it’s robust enough to cope with the new set up of world wide dealers ordering direct from a distribution centre..

If that isn’t adequately funded and properly organised, then caca will hit the fan. New owners to the brand won’t put up with their bikes off the road for months waiting on parts..

If MV is to grow the business, it needs to attract a new generation of owners away from other brands (Triumph, Honda, Yamaha, KTM ). Those potentially new MV owners expect a certain level of service and won’t accept anything less than what they were getting from previous brands..

I suppose it could be worse.. He could have previously been Berlusconi’s PR adviser.. I’m sure that wouldn’t look good on his résumé

I tend to agree with you on this. I see MV going mass market and it makes me a bit sad.

The reality is the world has changed and the market no longer supports expensive low production special machines anymore. For the time being everyone is pumping out machines built around a price tag so compared to the rest of all of those bikes the MV's will still be able to retain a bit of that special appeal for many years to come. The reality here is most people don't notice the differences between old and new. They just marvel at the performance numbers.

None of this changes the previous bikes which still exist and are quite wonderful. While everyone else is distracted buying the latest and greatest the previous models still have all their charm and magic in tact and become available at a much lower price. If you think about it in the big picture it's a win win situation. People get bikes they love at a lower price both new and old.

Personally I would love to see MV's become more common. It might make my F4 as invisible in a crowd of bikes as my good friend's Ducati is.
