Around a week ago, while most of the motorcycle companies were shutting down their factories due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MV Agusta wasn’t. The Italian brand decided to not suspend operations at its manufacturing facility in Varese. However, with the new stricter restrictions that the Italian government has enforced, MV Agusta has now closed its factory.

Speaking about the same, Timur Sardarov, CEO of MV Agusta Motor S.p.A., said, “The safety of our employees and the compliance with all Government provisions are our number one priority. We will do our part and fully collaborate with those who are presently working hard for the common good, scrupulously following their directions. We look to the future with confidence, ready for a new start once the emergency is over.”

MV Agusta has said that all of its employees in the administration and non-production roles will work from home, if possible. All other personnel will use “Cassa Integrazione Guadagni” or unused holiday allowances for their time off.
