About MV Agusta
Know more about MV Agusta
Like many other brands, MV Agusta was also a post war brand that started life as an efficient and cheap way of public transportation. It links back to parent Agusta aviation group and was formed on Feb 12, 1945 in Milan, Italy.
MV Agusta first started with cafe racer style 125cc motorcycles and moved slowly into a bigger 250cc segment. For almost two decades, they worked on maximum displacement of 350cc for bike engines. As demand for bigger engines went up, MV Agusta later entered the four cylinder 600cc and then 750cc segment. It was necessary to save the brand from extinction.
Vincenzo and Domenico Agusta started MV Agusta to save jobs of a large number of employees as demand for military equipment was over. The first generation bikes were produced in a bigger number while increasing engine size limited their sales number by passing years. However, the profifts were kept good enough in both cases.
Until 1952, the bikes manufactured came with older parts. After this year, MV Agusta started using telescopic forks, full sized brake hubs and slimmer fuel tank. This helped them win their first title of 1952 Isle of Man TT with Cecil Sandford as the rider.
The brand saw a large number of owners in last few decades as financial problems forced many big brands to sell MV Agusta. Last investment was seen from Mercedes AMG group in the form of 25% stake but still, the brand is expected to be under $50 million of debt.
In India, MV Agusta has partnered with Kinetic group to retail three different models with multiple variants. This includes the popular F4, F3 and Brutale range. The most expensive model on offer is F4 RC while buyers with lesser power needs can go for F3 800 RC in India.
