The MV Agusta Americas team will be concentrating on increasing its presence and brand awareness in the United States, Canada and LATAM, with the goal of establishing MV Agusta as the premier quality brand in all aspects of the business, a press release from the company said.
In particular, the focus will be on the development of a premium support network, the application of the latest business technology, and the launch of exciting new products and services to create a thrilling customer experience, the press release added.
Timur Sardarov, CEO MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. commented, "Reinforcing our presence in such an important market as the AMERICAS is a key part of our strategic plan.

I am confident Christian will succeed on his new path and I wish him every luck."
Christian Henderson who has been tasked with establishing MV Agusta in North America and Latin America, has been in the US motorcycle industry for over three decades. Most recently, he has been with Triumph Motorcycles America, as the Sales Manager for the past eight years.
Christian Henderson, Managing Director AMERICAS, said, "It is with great pleasure that I join the MV Agusta team. I will bring to bear my years of experience in the industry, both from the dealer and the OEM perspectives. In order to further propel this iconic brand to new heights in the Americas, my focus will be on increasing brand awareness and strengthening the overall premium experience for both MV Agusta customers and our dealer network. My goal is for MV Agusta to become the premier brand in each of our dealerships while remaining premium and aspirational."

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.
