MV Agusta coming to India in collaboration with Kinetic Group
 
1 Attachment(s)
MV Agusta is gearing up to enter the two-wheeler market in India in collaboration with the Kinetic Group. An official statement regarding the same is expected in July 2015. MV Agusta will become the seventh European motorcycle brand to come to India after Triumph Motorcycles, Ducati, BMW Motorrad, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Benelli.

Kinetic up is setting up a dealership network for MV Agusta under a separate business entity, within the Kinetic Group. It will not be a part of Kinetic Engineering, the flagship company of the group. Since Kinetic has manufacturing facilities in the country, the association with the group could also open up the possibility of local assembly of MV Agusta bikes in India in the future.

Last year, Mercedes AMG acquired a 25% stake in MV Agusta. The two companies signed an agreement covering the areas of marketing and sales. The market for big bikes in India has been growing at a fast pace. The legendary manufacturer will not want to stay out for long and is expecting to find favourable response to its products as well.

MVs are rolling art. #1 on my all time dream list has always been the F4 1000.

Hopefully no A.S.S fiascos like Ducati the first time round. And a few of us lesser-mortals get to see a few of them in the flesh.

What a time to be a biker in India! MV Agusta is obviously expecting a demand surge and I'm sure they will find a lot of takers here, as long as the brand can establish itself as a dedicated player.

Like loki pointed out, A.S.S will be of the essence. Establishing the service centres simultaneously with the dealerships will go a long way in building customer trust, not to mention good part availability - a place where even established brands in India like Harley-Davidson have a lot of room for improvement.

I really can't wait to check it out in person. Agusta's are more art than motorcycles to me! But isn't kinetic owned by Mahindra?

The kinetic engineering group is very much on their own. They sold only their two wheeler business to Mahindra. MV agusta is coming to India with kinetic group not kinetic two wheelers.
MV agusta is rolling art #1 can't wait to check them out.

I'm sure that's a typo, and not the only one on the page. It's most certainly 152kg and not 52kg ; and they wrote "radical" valve instead of "radial" valve.
No plans for the F4/F3 ?

I think they are saying the engine is engineered to weigh 52kgs. Not the whole motorcycle.

Check out more details at http://www.mvagusta.com/en/motorcycl...0-dragster-rr/

Yes, its only the engine at 52 kg! The bike weighs 163 kg.

Kinetic group does the "sales" part brilliantly but it is the "service" that is a concern! As MV Agusta is a piece of "Motorcycle Art" it is the maintenance that will be the deciding factor of prospective buyers if priced right.

For me the success of MV would lie in the pricing. The only reason we got interested in Ducati this time around is because they priced their middle weights decently. MV needs to do the same if they want to stand any chance of grabbing some pie of the Indian super biking scene.

Middle weights is the key. Around 6-10 lakhs price bracket is where there is action in the India market right now.

Plus a cheaper entry level model also helps in drawing crowds to the showrooms.

I'm actually really looking forward to the F3 as my next bike. Because the 899 Panigale is no longer on sale, and I'd rather walk on cactus than buy another Triumph.
