The motorcycle maker and the deep tech company join forces on multimodal mobility to offer a personalised riding experience.
January 22, 2021 – MV Agusta, maker of two-wheeled dreams founded in 1945, and e-Novia, the deep-tech enterprise factory specialised in Collaborative Mobility, Humanised Machines and Augmented Human, announce a collaboration aimed at providing riders with a digital and personalised mobility experience. Enjoying the most thrilling trips in complete safety and respecting individual riding styles is the overarching proposition of the project.
RIDE-APP AND TECH-DRIVEN SERVICES
MV Agusta and e-Novia, the deep technology specialist with a particular penchant for the motorcycling world, will focus their efforts on big-data-enabled services for riders through e-Novia technology. The collaboration already brought significant results, such as the MV Ride App introduced in June 2020. The new platform will help MV Agusta support customers through specialised services worthy of a true tech-company.
Timur Sardarov, CEO of MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. said: “Digitalisation is high on the agenda of MV Agusta’s strategy for growth. The union between traditional craftsmanship, advanced engineering and deep tech make our offer unique and ever more attractive for a demanding clientele that accepts nothing but perfection under every aspect.

The motorcycling industry and the light mobility sector will now have a new point of reference in terms of digital experience design, sense of community and personal safety.
