Is that the same Augusta that builds the motorcycles?

No. MV Agusta makes motorcycles and AgustaWestland S.p.A. Makes the AW609. AgustaWestland is a wholly owned subsidiary of FinnMeccanica and MV Agusta is an independent company. MV Agusta did start as a off-shoot of Agusta aviation, in the pre-WWII era.
