Mercedes-AMG buys 25% stake in MV Agusta.

Lots of news this week, this one is interesting. From a press release:

"Mercedes-AMG, the sports car and performance arm of Daimler AG, will buy 25 percent of MV Agusta and appoint a member of the motorcycle manufacturer's board, as the result of a partnership between the two manufacturers.

No sale price has been announced, and the partnership is subject to government approval, which is expected later this month.

Mercedes-AMG GmbH is the sports-car and performance brand of Mercedes-Benz Cars, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG. In 2013, Mercedes-AMG achieved unit sales of 32,000 cars; by the middle of this year, a total of 23,000 AMG automobiles had been sold.

“In MV Agusta, we have found the perfect two-wheel partner for Mercedes-AMG," said Tobias Moers, chief executive of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "This manufacturer with a long tradition and Mercedes-AMG are connected not only by a long and successful racing history, but also by shared values and goals for the future – allowing the experience of utmost perfection, optimal performance and motorsport technology for the road."

MV Agusta will be announcing its new models at the forthcoming EICMA international motorcycle fair in Milan, including the Brutale 800 RR and the Dragster 800 RR. MV Agusta will be entering the touring segment with the new Stradale 800 and Turismo Veloce 800.

“Mercedes-AMG will help MV Agusta to further expand globally and to accelerate our growth," said Giovanni Castiglioni, president and CEO of MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. #webBikeWorld
