Thumbs up MV Agusta adds to dealer network

May 4, 2015
Filed under News, Top Stories


As part of its strategy to enhance and selectively grow the dealer network in the USA, MV Agusta has been working together with existing and new dealer owners to expand its regional footprint and better serve consumers.
“We have a continual strategy to make changes in selected open areas where rider demand is high and the prospective MV rider community is underserved,” said Helen Vasilevski, CEO, MV Agusta USA LLC. “While we are not looking for extensive expansion, to best serve our enthusiastic riders we need to close the significant distances between service points across the USA.”
Other changes within the network strategy include proactive effort over the past two years to have a high and consistent degree of parts availability and technical service as well as upcoming changes to MV’s corporate identity that will create an overall vision for the brand, which will eventually be deployed at events and at the dealership level.
MV Agusta USA LLC is pleased to welcome the following locations to a strong core of existing dealers:
9 New Dealerships/Geographic areas being served
· —Utah (greater Salt Lake): Harrison Eurosports, 361 W 9000 S, Sandy, UT 84070

Well...as good as that may sound....4 new dealership are in states that already had a couple (FL) or a lot (CA)....so...not really closing any significant distances between service points across the USA...

Ciao, Andreas

Commonwealth in Louisville Kentucky is a MV dealer......

The important part of this news is that they are paying attention and taking steps to improve in the U.S. Market......

AND the bit about brand identity ........

Calculated growth is a good thing. From the sound bite it looks like MV is focused on better customer support as well as sales. That's always goodness.

Ordered a batch of filters from Commonwealth and was very pleased with their service on the parts side.

Thanks for the report Ed.

Guess I put this in the wrong place last week?

In terms of an economic foothold they are still a boutique company. With all the disappointment with the company's dis-connection from their customers after sale, it seems to me, this a smart and genuine move. Hopefully it means they are listening to the MV buyers in the US.

I missed your post in the Media section.... It was a press release on an industry newsletter where i saw it the other day.

Anyway....I think it portends good things.

Good things! I think so as well.

On another note - from the way they are folding, it seems like Triumph must be putting some pretty heavy demands on their dealerships. I'd love some more helmets,jackets, t-shirts etc, but I hope MV doesn't use the lifestyle/brand example set by Triumph and Ducati.

I wasn't complaining about Kentucky as we do have a dealership here (as pointed out).

My point is simply that adding more dealers to an already pretty occupied area does not close any distance in the grand scheme of things. California is certainly one of the bigger markets for MV and it is nice for people not having to drive for 2 hours to their dealer but rather can do it in 1 hour now, however, the guy in some other state can't still find a dealer within 8 hours.

If you want to increase your sales in the US, you need to grow the dealer network where it is lacking right now...not adding to your already dense markets...

Ciao, Andreas

I would rather they enhance their parts network in the US.
