2019 MV Agusta Moto2 Race Bike Un­veiled

Bike India - - IGNITION -

MV AGUSTA ARE UN­DOUBT­EDLY THE MOST SUC­CESS­FUL EURO­PEAN man­u­fac­tur­ers in the world of Grand Prix rac­ing. They dom­i­nated the race­tracks for a ma­jor part of the first three decades since the be­gin­ning of the sport in 1949. MV Agusta have a for­mi­da­ble 75 world ti­tles, of which 38 are rider ti­tles and the re­main­ing man­u­fac­turer ones.

Now, af­ter a 42-year-long hia­tus, they are back. In the 2019 sea­son, we will see them join hands with For­ward Rac­ing Team. Re­ports sug­gest that MV were re­luc­tant to join the 2018 sea­son since it was the last sea­son for the Honda-pow­ered Moto2 ma­chines. The top brass at the Ital­ian firm felt that it would be more fea­si­ble to re-en­ter the arena of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing in the 2019 sea­son, for it would be the first year of Tri­umph-pow­ered Moto2 bikes.

Cred­ited with bring­ing us some of the most de­sir­able mo­tor­cy­cles in the world and armed with a highly suc­cess­ful rac­ing her­itage, the team will carry high ex­pec­ta­tions into the 2019 sea­son. MV Agusta have a lot to ben­e­fit from this move, mainly in the re­search and de­vel­op­ment depart­ment, par­tic­u­larly be­cause they also have an in-line, three-pot mill (of sim­i­lar dis­place­ment to the Tri­umph) in the mar­ket.
