DucShop is an MV only dealer ..... even though the name sounds like they are not.

I think many, if not most MV dealers in Australia are MV only, or more correctly, they sell MV, Benelli and Enfield, which are all imported by the same company.

I'm looking forward to see what is revealed in November. Hoping for an upgraded F3 800.

Translation (from google translate - forgive the admiral for any mistranslations) :

During the presentation of the MotoGP Misano Adriatico GP we had the opportunity to chat with Brian Gillen, MV Agusta's new R&D director . Brian talked to us about the new Brutale 1000, the SBK project, the problems encountered in Moto2 and the new openings that will affect the flagship stores of the Varese house.

MR. GILLEN, THE NEW BRUTALE 1000 IS MV AGUSTA'S CLASSIC AESTHETIC MASTERPIECE. BUT IS IT STILL A MOTORCYCLE FOR A FEW?
“The new Brutale is certainly the most extreme ever produced, both in terms of style and performance. 200 horsepower is certainly not for everyone, but the bike has become easier to ride even towards its relatives. Clearly the limit of the bike remains far from that of the intermediate user, but its ease is significantly improved, allowing everyone to have fun in safety. "

AMONG HIS STATEMENTS SPOKE OF VARIOUS FORMS OF ENGINE, WHAT SOLUTIONS DID THEY FEAR?
“Honestly we have thought of them all, from the V4 to a 1000CC inline 3. But the history of MV Agusta is based on the inline 4 engine, it was important for us to maintain the link with what made us what we are today. The competition is spanning many different types of engines, but for us the 4 in line remains the admiral. "

MR. GILLEN, WILL MV AGUSTA'S NEXT SUPERBIKE ALSO BE A 4 IN LINE?
“Certainly yes, we are also already well under way for development. You will have news shortly. "

IN MOTO2, HOWEVER, THE F2 IS HAVING SOME PROBLEMS. IS MV AGUSTA THINKING OF A KTM- STYLE OVAL TUBE SOLUTION ?
“It is a very complex speech, more than you think. The first 24 riders are in less than a second, which means that statistically someone will be happy with the tire setup situation immediately, while someone will struggle more. On the other hand, we have Kalex as a competitor who has dozens of bikes on the track and years of experience. With Covid and the freezing of development, we found ourselves in difficulty because our project is very young. As Giovanni Cuzari said, the 2020 bike is ready but we can't use it. "

IS THERE A YAMAHA-CENTRIC SITUATION IN SUPERSPORT?
“More than Yamaha it is Locatelli-centric. Andrea is really making a difference compared to everyone, at Aragon in FP1 he did a 10-lap long run and all 10 were faster than the best of the second in the standings. So here the difference is mainly made by him, we are happy with De Rosa's results even if the accident did not want us. For us Jules (Cluzel, NDR) is close to our heart as he was our driver, for us he is a friend and we wish him to recover as soon as possible "

MR. GILLEN, WHAT ARE MV AGUSTA'S NEXT PROJECTS?
“Each project that is developed in MV Agusta requires 3 to 7 years of development. Currently on the desk we have 17 projects at a more or less advanced stage and therefore almost ready for presentation to the public. From November it will already be possible to see the next projects. "

ARE MOTORCYCLE SHOWS STILL AN IMPORTANT PART?
“With the new social networks it has become much easier to reach all the fans. For us EICMA is important but it is in Italy and for Europe, while for the global market some campaigns will be more important than the shows themselves. But we will remain busy in the main salons. "

ARE YOU ALSO MODERNIZING YOUR SALES NETWORK?
“The new ownership is very keen on the brand image, which does not rank on the same level as the other houses. It is essential for us to have flagship stores that only deal with MV Agusta, we have already opened 7 in France where the demand is high. A pilot store will also open shortly in Italy, but I still can't tell you where. You will know shortly. "
