According to some reports, BMW may either get into a joint-venture agreement with Husqvarna and perhaps acquire a stake in the company. To begin with, BMW may acquire one of Husqvarna’s factories in Italy, and development work on BMW’s high-performance off-road bikes may be done in cooperation with Husqvarna.
BMW’s motorcycle division, with its aggressive new lineup of sporty machines, was very successful last year (the company sold more than 100,000 bikes in 2006), and it seems the Bavarian Express will continue to steamroll the competition this year as well…
Update (20.07.2007): BMW buy Husqvarna from Claudio Castiglioni!
