The British enthusiast publication MCN posted a story on its web site earlier today indicating that “multiple sources” have indicated to MCN that BMW is in the latter stages of negotiating the sale of its Husqvarna brand to KTM. You may recall that BMW purchased Husqvarna just a few years ago, and has only recently introduced new Husqvarna models featuring BMW-derived engines, such as the Nuda 900. MCN claims some of its sources believe the deal will be announced this week. If true, this deal brings to mind Harley-Davidson’s short-lived ownership of MV Agusta.
