MV Agusta entered in partnership with China-based Loncin Motor Company to manufacture smaller capacity bikes
So everyone is planning to take help from China to manufacture their small capacity motorcycles for the global market. About a month back, Harley Davidson ventured into Chinese automaker to manufacture small bike for Chinese and other Asian markets. Italian motorcycle manufacturer, MV Agusta too joined hands with Loncin Motor Company.
It is revealed that the smaller capacity bikes will be designed by MV Agusta in Italy. The manufacturing of these bikes will be done by Loncin Motor Co for the Chinese as well as other south Asian markets including India. Yes, you read that right, these smaller MV Agusta bikes will definitely come on the Indian shores.
At present, no one knows anything about the style of the bikes or the specifications. All we know is that MV Agusta also wants a fair share from the middleweight segment. As everyone of know that 300-500cc motorcycle segment is the future of the industry, thus every other manufacturer wants to make profits from this.
Manufacturing bikes in countries like India and China is a way cheaper for all the premium motorcycle manufacturer. This is why big companies are attracted to developing countries to manufacture affordable motorcycles for the global market.
It will be quite exciting to see premium names like Brutale, F series and Turismo Veloce at affordable prices. Further, the component quality will be more than enough to cater to the buyers of this category.
According to the deal, the Chinese company Loncin will take MV Agusta’s help in developing own range of 800cc bikes. These bikes will be made under a new brand name called Voge. The Voge bikes will be only made for the Chinese market.
It is expected that the first bike from this partnership will be unveiled in 2021. We can get to see the concept bike in EICMA 2020 or in other motor show.
