MV Agusta USA Future

MV Agusta’s 2017 restructuring plan is at full throttle, especially for its North American market.

The Varese-based brand announced a restructuring plan in March 2016 to alleviate its $45 million debt, which was mostly absorbed by suppliers. This led to an investment by technology company Black Ocean Group, which is underway.

In January, the North American branch, MV Agusta USA, appointed Urban Motor Group to lead the brand’s relaunch in the USA. The focus will be on increased customer confidence and appreciation of the MV Agusta brand.
