MV Agusta is planning to enter the Moto2 competition from the next season in 2019. It has completed building its race bike for that. Here’s how it looks.
MV Agusta race bike is inspired by the Italian firm’s iconic model, the F3 supersport. Of course, there are many changes made to make it eligible for the Moto2 world championship. MV Agusta will be using Triumph’s 765cc, triple cylinder engine to participate in the race.
Competition in Moto2 is at its peak. All the teams are giving their 100% to win races. Even the well-established parties are struggling to keep up with the new talents. MV Agusta will have to be patient. It will take time to get used to the ecosystem, and fine-tune its race bike. It is doable, but not overnight. It would be interesting to see who MV Agusta picks as its team riders.
All the operations of MV Agusta related to Moto2 will be handled by Forward Racing Team. Giovanni Cuzari, Forward Racing Team CEO, commented, “The dream of bringing MV Agusta back to the World Championship was born with Claudio Castiglioni, to whom I have always been linked by deep esteem and friendship, and the dream came true with his son Giovanni.”
He continued, “I find it difficult to express with words what this means, to be actively part of a common project with both MV Agusta and CRC, the two Italian excellences that created the most beautiful motorcycles in history. I worked many years for this to happen, and now I feel proud to announce that MV Agusta will race in the Moto2 World Championship with Forward Racing Team. I am also aware of the great responsibility involved in having such a prestigious brand on the hulls of our motorbikes. Our team, along with MV Agusta and CRC, will strive to achieve, in the shortest possible time, what all the fans, and we first, expect and dream.”
