    Default MV Agusta has teamed up with Kinetic for its Indian debut: xBhp News

    After Benelli and Ducati another Italian manufacturer, MV Agusta is planning to enter into Indian two-wheelers industry. Ever since Daimler A.G took over MV Agusta, they made their intentions clear that they were looking for an Indian partner to make a debut into Indian industry. The Italian manufacturer will now partner with Kinetic engineering.

    Kinetic currently assembles engines for MV Agusta, and being an existing partner seems like an Ideal partner for MV Agusta to build their brand in India. In a way Kinetic motors too will be revived as a brand in India. Kinetic had earlier signed an agreement with MV Agusta for supply of various components of motorcycles for Agusta's entry level model under the Cagiva brand.

    Kinetic has their facility in Pune which could be used as an assembly base for MV Agusta if and when they decide to bring their performance bikes in India via CKD route, but chances are that the initial range of bikes will come via CBU route.

    Looking at the line-up of their motorcycles, I dont see the pricing will be anywhere competetive to the upcoming 650F or the Z800. IMO.

    Thats like saying that the Ferrari will not be as competitive as the GTR.

    Ofcourse it wont be.

    I was not referring to the F4 or the Brutale 1090, I was referring more to the 675 or 800. I very well know how Ferrari or the GTR performs w.r.t each other...so yeah...

    MV Brutale 800 has been already ridden in India. I had the chance to be a part of the test ride.But could not due to unavoidable reasons.
    As far as the pricing is concerned,I heard a figure of 12-13 lakhs for the Brutale 800.

    I feel MV is also carrying the same statics as Ducati so price is going to be less.

    IMO there is already a showroom in Kathmandu but a not single one in India.

    MV Agusta in India! Wow!! As if Ducati's were not enough for us to drool on, we will have one more Italian on board. Good times are here
    My favorite from their stable is the MV Agusta Tourismo Veloce 800. What a bike! Italians surely have a charm in all their bikes which is unmatched and unseen.
