MV Agusta has had presence in India with its collaboration with MotoRoyale, the multi-brand motorcycle distributor, which, apart from MV Agusta, had Norton, Hyosung, FB Mondial and SWM under its wings. In fact, in 2020, MV Agusta called off the relationship with MotoRoyale and MV Agusta CEO Timur Sardarov had even indicated that the brand is looking for a new partner to work with in India. So far, MV Agusta's focus seems to have been in cementing its position in developed markets, like Europe, and now, in North America, as a premium and aspirational motorcycle brand. But sooner or later, MV Agusta will need to look towards India; after all, it's the world's largest motorcycle market.
