Timur Sardarov, CEO of MV Agusta, said: “I am so happy that our special F3 800 for UNICEF Italia found such a generous buyer. All our motorcycles are hand-crafted and it takes an incredible amount of pride, passion and experience to manufacture one. This special one is unique and to know it will serve a unique cause makes every woman and man involved in its production even prouder. I wish to thank UNICEF Italia for giving us this opportunity to support them in defending vulnerable children”.
