MV Agusta dismisses rumors of KTM’s takeover

In a recent interview with Motorrad magazine, MV Agusta CEO Timur Saradarov addressed the controversy surrounding the partnership between MV Agusta and KTM, dispelling rumors of a potential takeover by the Austrian manufacturer.

The partnership has sparked speculation of KTM’s intentions to acquire a majority stake in the Italian brand, with executives at Pierer Mobility Group, KTM’s parent company, expressing a desire for such a move.

However, Saradarov remains uninterested in KTM’s ambitions.

“It’s great that there is such great interest from KTM in MV Agusta”he said.

Saradarov, who currently owns 74.9 percent of the Italian company, expressed his intention not to sell and assured that nothing will change in the next three to four years.

As for the Lucky Explorer model, Saradarov would neither confirm nor deny its inclusion in the lineup, but did reveal that an MV Agusta LXP series is in the works, with a 950 variant confirmed.

Saradarov also gave a glimpse of the upcoming LXP series, stating that it will have a completely different three-cylinder engine. The global launch of the LXP series is expected at the end of the summer, and MV Agusta should produce 2,500 to 3,000 units this year.
