Holding Company Acquires Mercedes-AMG’s Stake In MV Agusta 20
Posted by Brad Anderson in AMG, mercedes, Mercedes AMG, motorcycles, MV Agusta, Reports on 12 20th, 2017

The 25 per cent stake formerly held by Mercedes-AMG in motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta has been acquired by MV Holding, the holding company owned by Giovanni Castiglioni and the Sardarov family.

In purchasing this 25 per cent stake in MV Agusta, the holding company now owns 100 per cent of the Italian motorcycle brand.

Ownership of MV Agusta has been like an expensive game of musical chairs over the last decade and a half. In 2004, it was purchased by Proton before being passed on to a Swiss financing company. Shortly after, MV Agusta’s Husqvarna subbrand was sold to BMW and for 12 months, Harley-Davidson acquired a controlling stake in the company. MV Holding then jumped on board.

In 2014, Mercedes-AMG purchased a 25 per cent stake in MV Agusta, potentially in response to Audi’s purchase of Ducati.

Mercedes-AMG announced its intention to sell its MV Agusta stake in July.


MV Agusta Brutale Pirelli Edition Is The Most Italian Bike Ever 6
Posted by Carscoops Staff in motorcycles, MV Agusta, Pirelli on 11 6th, 2017

When we think of Italian motorcycles, we tend to imagine Ducatis. But those aren’t the only Italian motorcycles. Not by a long shot.

There’s Aprilia, of course, but also marques like Bimota, Moto Guzzi, and MV Agusta – which has come out with what could very well be the most Italian motorcycle we’ve seen yet.

Celebrating their name tire-supply deal, MV Agusta teamed up with Pirelli Design to create the Brutale 800 RR Pirelli edition. It’s based on Agusta’s naked street-fighter bike, wearing Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP rubber on 17-inch wheels – the one at the back measuring half a foot wide.

The bike’s done up in matte black with either red or blue trim, extending not only to the motorcycle’s body graphics but also to the sidewalls of the tires, just like Pirelli does for Formula One.

This version of the Brutale packs an 800-cc three-cylinder engine with counter-rotating crankshaft to produce 116 horsepower. It’s slated to be revealed at the upcoming EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, where it’s bound to emerge as the most Italian collaboration put on wheels since Lamborghini crafted a similar special edition out of its Aventador.
