For those of you moto enthusiasts this is mostly relevant to you. AMG looks set to wrap up a deal to buy the small itlaian moto maker MV Agusta.

I imagine they have the same co branded green push in mind with MV as they had when pursuing Ducati in 2012. Perhaps this new financial punch could spur MV back into the grand prix crucible?

You think that the purchase would actually have an affect on MV Augusta, or would MB just take ownership and let them continue doing their own thing?

MB seems to be the type of company that would want to stick to the culture of the brand and add their own ways of doing things to it.

^Money. Just look at what Audi has done for Ducati now that they dont have to worry about funds. Also note that MErc is the only german without a motorcycle...
