MV Augusta and Mercedes-Benz will work together to reach more customers.Having missed out on a deal with Ducati, Mercedes-Benz has bought a stake in Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta.

Ducati worked with the German brand's AMG performance arm to create a special edition of its Diavel motorcycle that might have led to more.

But the Volkswagen Group bought Ducati for €860 million in 2012, preventing Mercedes-Benz, AMG or its parent company Daimler from forger closer ties with the well-known bike builder.  READ ON

MV AgustaClaudio Castiglioni, big boss of MV Agusta, would like to put everyone’s minds at rest regarding the future of MV Agusta. During the Misano launch of the MV F4 1000R he gave a personal promise that now his company has been re-structured and re-financed, it is totally secure and will always be there for its customers. Like fellow Italian marques Aprilia, Benelli, Bimota, Ducati and Mondial, MV Agusta has been through turbulent times recently, but as always their phenomenal Latin passion will see them through, so for that they must be applauded.

While past models have looked and sounded like they would take on all comers, I believe they failed to deliver – especially on the track.

Finally, it seems, the modern MVs have some credibility. READ ON

Why it’s so special
MV Agusta F4s are the ultimate poster bikes. The iconic Massimo Tamburini-designed lines haven’t really changed over the years, just tweaked, refined and polished, but even today, 14 years after the original F4 750 was released, this latest evolution is unutterably beautiful.  READ ON
