24th July 2010, marked a historic day in the chapter of Malaysian motorcycling as the opening of the eeMV Agusta FLAGSHIP LIFESTYLE STORE opened its doors to the public for the first time in Malaysia. 

Having already opened several Flagship stores throughout the world, it is both a privilege and ease for the South East Asian public to have a taste that is the “Art of Motorcycling”. Present to officiate the opening ceremony is the Director of MOFAZ, Dato Nik Izani, and all the way from Italy, MV’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Mr. Umberto Ucelli.

 

 

 

Members of the press were invited to cover the event, which was full of fanfare and a delicious spread of Italian food.  

 

The store, located in uptown Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, promises to cater to discerning super biking lifestyle while epitomizing the MV brand as “The Art” of motorcycling. The rich and prestigious history synonymies the name of MV as art on two wheels, and as Mr. Umberto said, “In Italy the Ferrari is referred to as ‘MV of cars’ and not vice versa”. Very catchy and grand I must say. As well as selling all of the MV range, including the ultra trick, ultra rare and outrageously priced Euro100, 000(pre-tax) F4 1080CC, the Flagship store also offers the full range of accessories and clothing to suit the MV AGUSTA culture and fashion.

Two weeks later, on the 6th of August, the store was visited by Paulo Roncolli, the Italian Trade Commisioner. This time around, the store was stocked with all the MV range including the very exclusive and super rare F4 “Oro” or Gold in Italian, the F4 Tamburini and of course the F4 1080CC. All these bikes are built on a production run of 100 units worldwide for a one time run only, so it is really a privilege to find three of the planet’s rarest and most exclusive bikes under one roof! The visit was followed by a photo session and open session for the media. Ms. Roncolli commented the Italian government was optimistic of the venture of MV and Mofaz even though there were problems with previous owners. She also touched on the possibility of an influx of Italian motorcycling products to Malaysia and hope that it would be a two-way market. The director of Mofaz, Dato Nik Izani added that they are targeting a high market capture with a focus on the higher income bracket, including opening a mini flagship store in Sarawak to cater to inquiries from the Brunei Royal Family! He also mentioned the recent good results in the Malaysian Super Series championships, where the MV F4 1000 placed a podium finishing 3rd in both races in the 1000cc Superstock category.
