From a press release
Varese, December 2nd 2010 MV Agusta enters the Canadian market appointing Motovan Corporation as its exclusive importer.
"We have finally succeeded in obtaining all of the necessary approvals from the Canadian authorities therefore the motorcycles can be imported into Canada for the very first time in the history of MV Agusta. After many inquiries from Canadian consumers, we are very proud to have reached an agreement with a reputable Canadian powersports organization such as Motovan" says Umberto Uccelli sales director MV Agusta.
James Paladino, President and CEO of Motovan Corporation is an Italo-Candian who has always helped maintain Italy's unique image. James states: "We are very happy to be associated with MV Agusta so that our passion lives on in our family. To me, this is a tribute to my father (founder of Motovan) since he worked on MV Agusta motorcycles in the 1950's from his shop in a little village in Italy".
In the very near future, Motovan will be appointing a small number of high-level dealers in order to sell this prestigious brand and obtain good coverage for all enthusiasts who have been waiting for such a long time. For the first year, the number of motorcycles will be extremely limited therefore Motovan will be launching a website which allows the serious buyer the possibility to reserve his or her motorcycle on-line.
This association with Canada demonstrates another step for MV Agusta in its worldwide network expansion plans. Soon, other announcements will be made.
