MV Agusta India launch confirmed for late 2015

Ajinkya Firodia, MD, Kinetic World.

Indian two-wheeler and engine manufacturer Kinetic has confirmed that it has signed an agreement with Italian sport and superbike brand MV Agusta to sell its motorcycles in India.

In our last report we had said that both parties were interested in signing an agreement to bring the Italian brand to Indian shores. The Kinetic Group will be establishing showrooms for the brand in top cities across the country to retail as well as service the Italian manufacturer’s offerings.

The first offering from MV Augusta is slated to launch sometime in November 2015 with the rest of – or at least part of – the company’s international portfolio to follow in the coming two to three years. In international markets, the MV Agusta portfolio consists of a range of high-performance machines such as the Brutale, Rivale, Turismo Veloce, F3 and the range-topping F4. Some of which could make their way to our shores.

MV Augusta motorcycles will be imported into the country as completely built units (CBUs) or in the form of semi knocked-down (SKD) kits. Kinetic says the prices for the offerings are expected to range from Rs 12 lakh to Rs 33 lakh.

This is not the first collaboration between the two brands, with Kinetic having designed and manufactured a 125cc engine and aluminium frame for MV Agusta’s sister brand Cagiva.
