Interesting article in cycle world:

http://blog.cycleworld.com/?p=820

"Claudio’s health is not good; he is fighting cancer and undergoing chemotherapy treatment, not the best condition to run a company that, while enjoying a superb image on the international motorcycle market, badly needs to make profits before the little treasure that Harley-Davidson left behind will vaporize. Giovanni Castiglioni is a brilliant young manager and, most important, shares with his father the same passionate love for MV Agusta, and for the motorcycling world in general"

"I called Tamburini about the prospect of him crossing blades with Bordi again, if he were offered again the position of general manger of CRC in San Marino. Tamburini said that he would have to ponder the matter very carefully, because of the very difficult time he had getting along with Bordi in the past. Then he added that perhaps something had changed in the meantime, because a few months ago he received a surprise call from Bordi, who remembered the old days and praised Tamburini for his magnificent, artist-like creations. Maybe at 62, Bordi has smoothed out the sharp edges of his character. Maybe he was simply trying to iron out old bumps to make sure that he will be able to count again on the artist’s touch of the greatest and most creative motorcycle designer on the scene today. Time will tell, but the prospect of Tamburini-penned MVs will have Italian motorcycle fans around the world going mad with anticipation."

That is sad news to hear the Claudio’s health is not to good, and lets hope for him and his family sake that he responds well to his treatment.

On a positive note, Tamburini returning to MV is the best news I've heard since I got that letter from MV in 2006 saying that my F4 Tamburini was on its way from the factory.

Fingers crossed guys .. Viva La MV... :yo:

Cheers for the post Rob !!

Hopefully CC's passion and excitement of having the MV brand back will help with him being able to overcome his current health issues and treatment.

+100 for getting Mr.T to hopefully come back

Tamburini will add the flavor that MV needs to survive.

I figured that, but it was not very clearly worded.

If Tamburini designs the new middleweight.......it will be bought. Especially if it has enough grunt to take down the new 848 Evo. Imagine a 140hp 675cc MV Triple!!!!!! ....for under $14K .....that revs to 15K rpm!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm saving my pennies. :naughty:


Please Tambo, SAVE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!
