Last month, we had reported that there was a possibility of Tata Motors picking up a stake in MV Agusta. While that doesn’t seem to have materialized, according to a new report on India Automotive, it’s now another Indian business group – Mahindra & Mahindra – that’s now interested in picking up a controlling stake in MV.

M&M had, some time ago, bought a controlling stake in Stile Bertone, and may now buy MV Agusta to fuel the company’s ambitions of getting into the global bike market. Like Benelli’s Chinese owners, M&M would be in a position to inject a substantial amount of money into MV, allowing the Italian company to spend some on research and new bike development.
