MV Agusta establishes foothold in Canada


MV Agusta has named Motovan Corp. as its exclusive importer for the Canadian market.

“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 MV Agusta sales director Umberto Uccelli.

James Paladino, president and CEO of Motovan Corp. is an Italo-Candian who has always helped maintain Italy’s unique image. “We are very happy to be associated with MV Agusta so that our passion lives on in our family," Paladino says. "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.

Motovan is a Canadian importer, exporter, distributor and manufacturer of parts and accessories for the powersports market. The company also provides logistics services to other powersports organizations in Canada.

This association with Canada demonstrates another step for MV Agusta in its worldwide network expansion plans. Soon, other announcements will be made.
