Seems to be a reoccurring theme.....

They better figure out a way to sell more bikes in N.A. Or it going to go the way of the dinosaur here.

A sufficient amount of people required are not going to by bikes they have to drive 5 hours or more to get serviced or confident that service will even be available in future years.

They really need to reinvent themselves like Ducati did in 1993-1994. The Monster (I would argue) created the naked bike sector and remains there best seller, while the introduction of the 916 brought all the world press to herald it.

Boutique manufacturers of just don't survive in N.A. anymore.

MVs business plans are ridiculous. Why do they let this keep happening?

As I understand, they've tripled their sales in the last couple of years. I've got confidence they'll solve their distribution problems in North America.

Why don't you share those plans with us, and tell us why they're ridiculous.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Pro Italia sold their internet business (Pro Italia Online) to AMS Ducati who does not sell MV's. The sale doesn't have anything to do with MV, only Pro Italia who will continue to sell MV's at their dealership.

Just heard from Proitalia that the website now is a Ducati only site, so no more finding parts on that site. But you can call them.
Below you can see an email from them:


We are a Ducati only website now since the transition from Pro Italia. You can still purchase MV Agusta parts from Pro Italia, but you have to call or email the dealership directly. Now that the site is owned by AMS Ducati Dallas, we no longer sell the other brands. Sorry we can't be of more help.

You are in Europe right Henrik, what are you doing dealing with a USA dealer when you have Start Twin Trading right near you ? Serious question.

And at the time, Startwin didn't use MV part numbers but their own numbers - see the old and new way on attached picture
I see where you're coming from. I have a few different versions of some of the bikes parts lists thanks to Pro Italia and Haupti ...etc.
If you like I can put them in DropBox for you to download if you need them, then just save em to your computer instead of going to a website everytime.

Download the parts list on my site for now, and when I get home I'll go through the others. Going to test ride the Lusso now.
