Claudio Castiglioni rides on in Heaven

It's a sad day for the world of motorcycles, as the man behind such great brands like CAGIVA, DUCATI and MV AGUSTA, died this morning at age 64 after a prolonged illness.

Claudio Castiglioni, or simply Mr. Claudio, as he liked to be called by his staff, was the creator of motorcycle icons such as the MV Agusta Brutale S, the Ducati Monster S4 (one of the many versions), the fabulous 916, the fuel injected Monster 900 and the MV Agusta F4 who was voted the world's most beautiful bike.

Such a passionate biker will undoubtedly ride on in heaven.

Here is the official press release:
