The deal, extending over several years, focuses on the distribution, promotion, and customer service of the MV Agusta range of motorcycles by KTM AG’s North American subsidiary. The strength of the brand and the exclusivity of its motorcycles, a symbol of Italy’s design and engineering excellence, and KTM AG’s extensive and solid commercial organization will support the growth of MV Agusta in the North American region.
The agreement is part of MV Agusta’s strategic plan, which envisions significant growth in the coming years. The KTM AG group will create a dedicated U.S.-based legal entity that will be in charge of all MV Agusta operations in North America. Going forward, MV Agusta motorcycles will be distributed through both select KTM AG dealers as well as existing and new MV Agusta stores.
Timur Sardarov, CEO at MV Agusta Motor, said he was “thrilled” by the agreement between the two European motorcycle manufacturers.
“I am confident that KTM’s extensive and professional sales organization paired with the strong appeal of our brand in the region will bring great benefits to both companies,” Sardarov said. “Thanks to our cooperation, we will create synergies that will enable us to accelerate our growth strategy in North America.”
Hubert Trunkenpolz, member of the Executive Board at KTM AG, echoed the excitement about starting a new partnership with “such a historic motorcycle brand.”
“Our brands are going from strength to strength everywhere in the world, particularly in North America where we will exceed 100,000-unit sales in 2022 with the KTM, Husqvarna and GASGAS motorcycle brands,” Trunkenpolz said. “Taking on the distribution of the MV Agusta brand will complement our extensive premium motorcycle range. With the addition of the most iconic Italian luxury motorcycle brand to our KTM North America operations, we are able to ensure support to all North American motorcycle enthusiasts as well as bringing exciting new business opportunities to existing and new dealers.”
With the experience I’ve had with KTM USA warranty resolutions, I’ll never buy an MV Agusta as long as KTM USA is involved.
I couldn’t agree more.USA KTM is the worst warrenty and people I’ve dealt with. They do not stand behind the name.All they’re trying to do is sale the bike.
