I don't own an MV Agusta but was very sorry to read this today:

Hopefully AMG does take over and gets this company on track.

Uh-oh.
I think this is a crime in the US, not sure about Italy.

Such beautiful bikes I hope AMG or Polaris keeps the brand alive!

Apparently they finally secured the funding from the Russian investors and re-purchase the 25% stake that AMG has owned.

^^^ Good news. Here's hoping that MV refocuses and thrives. It sure seemed to me that they got carried away with all the 675 and 800cc variations of bikes.

It was my understanding Black Ocean Group was the buyer unless they have already flipped the sale?

Mate owns a mv dealers and the things he tells me is painful . He gets bills for parts and they owe him for warranty work and it's two departments they take on new staff you need to talk to and give them holiday leave without cover its just like going back in time when aprilia and Ducati was the same

Yes, similar here. Warranty claims, parts etc, get nowhere. Pity, as someone else said, beautiful bikes.

The 600/800 models have problems I've lost count of sprag clutches I've changed

I'm guessing that AMG was glad to dis-associate themselves from that gig.
