MOTO2 MOTORCYCLE OF MV AGUSTA
We know from earlier that MV Agusta entered the Moto2 championship in 2019. Now we’ve learned something more.
It is well known that MV Agusta will retire from the Superbike championship and in 2019, with the help of fresh Russian capital and Forward Racing teams, will move to the Moto2 category. The first computer photographs of their Moto2 motorcycle have also been released, and the first tests on the race track were to be held in July.
Since the Forward Racing team uses the Suter Motorcycles promised and developed this year, there was a fear that MV Agusta would be just the stickers under which the aluminum frame of the Swiss constructor would be hidden. But this first official view of how the Moto2 motorcycle should look like it is revealed to be an authentic MV Agusta product, where Suter has only an advisory role. Namely, there are clearly visible tubular steel tubes, somewhat similar to those of the Supersport model F3 675, while on the other hand, instead of a single wheelbarrow, we look at the classic rear fork, which is a more solid solution. Clearly, MV Agusta has a wealth of competitive experience with a three-cylinder F3 675, and the job of developing Moto2 makes it easier for them to move from the next year to the use of Triumph’s three-cylinder aggregate. This does not mean that their job will be light and they will be in the first season to hit the 39th driver and / or the 38th constructor title, but at least they do not have to go from a completely blank paper. As a handy detail we mention the air inlet of the motorcycle muzzle, which in its shape looks like a rhomboidal headlight, giving honor to the F3 model as well as to the other armored MV Agusta motorcycles. Of course, there will be a lot of change in the design and construction of the motorcycle by the beginning of next season, but it has look as already as happy return of MV Agusta to the World Motorcycle Championship after a 42-year break.
