MV Agusta is an Italian Brand. It was owned by Proton for a couple of years till the beginning of this year. They sold it to an Italian Holding's company a couple of months ago for 1 EURO!!!!! They said they made the wrong decision by wanting to move into the motorcycle industry and couldn't support the financial requirements needed to run a company like MV Agusta. Wish i had the money to buy and run that company!!

Wish I knew that they were selling it off for a Euro. i could atleast have bought it for the time being. before declaring bankruptcy.

Well looks wise its the RSV for me. But then If I have to buy one without any constrain for money it would be the MV Augusta F41000 but only the Tamburini edition

I know that there are many Japanese superbikes in India. But are there any European superbikes on Indian roads?

k. I guess that's coz of 2 reasons.

1 price of the bike
2. lacks of places where the bikes acan be serviced.
