Exclamation TATA considering stake in MV AGUSTA !!!

Saw this on autoblog. Searched out the source which led to the link below. ""Ratan Tata, chairman of the Tata Group, is reportedly in talks with Claudio Castiglioni, the man running the show at MV Agusta.
""

What on earth are they not looking at staking them selves in !
What do you guys thinK?! I like the news. Its better than loosing an exquisite bike maker to a Chinese company just like Benelli.

I take this with a pinch of salt. Why would Tata buy an bike company?
They already have got enough on their hands/plate or whatever with Jag/LR.

As for as the Augusta getting into India, Bike India had an report on a 125CC bike from them being tested in Pune.
