MV re­turn to GP rac­ing

MCN - - THIS WEEK -

MV Agusta have an­nounced their re­turn to top class GP rac­ing in a deal that will see the For­ward Rac­ing Team cam­paign un­der the MV ban­ner in Moto2. There were ques­tion marks over MV’s rac­ing fu­ture af­ter Gio­vanni Castiglioni said pro­duc­tion of the F4, and its WSB in­volve­ment, would soon end, but this news means MVs will re­main on the grid for years to come.

All Moto2 teams use the same en­gine with dif­fer­ent chas­sis, sus­pen­sion, wheels etc. When MV en­ters in 2019, that en­gine will be Tri­umph’s Moto2 765 triple from the Street Triple. How­ever, as MV al­ready make their own 675 and 800cc triples what they learn in rac­ing could be trans­ferred to their road bikes and if the styling of their Moto2 race bike is any­thing to go by, we can barely con­tain our ex­cite­ment.

The Ital­ian race leg­end will en­ter Moto2 in 2019
