Going Once, Going Twice: Do we hear any bids for MV Agusta?

You can't breathe a word about Harley-Davidson these days without being swirled into the rumormill. Even the financial analysts have chimed in to speculate about a possible buyout. The official news traveled fast regarding the corking of the Buell bottle, but that still leaves the better-looking Italian cousin. What will become of MV Agusta?
Word on the street indicates that Harley may be in talks with a few different – and equally interesting, we might add – buyers, the first of which is Paul Berlusconi, brother of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. For a brand that couldn't be more quintessentially Italian, an MV/Berlusconi marriage seems rather appropriate, or adatto as they may say it in Italy.
The buyer behind door number two is where things get more exciting. Rumor has it that BMW has shown serious interest in MV Agusta.
Can we get confirmation from either party? Of course not, but stay tuned for updates as this story develops. Either way, we hope to see MV Agusta on two wheels (or, you know... sometimes just one) for years to come.
