MV Agusta Reparto Corse Coming To World SBK in 2014

There was a time when MV Agusta was a well known name in World Superbike racing with 37 Championship and 38 Manufacturers titles. But then the brand disappeared from the tracks leaving the fans in confusion if they would see MV Agusta ever on the tracks again. Earlier this month at EICMA, Giovanni Castiglioni, CEO of MV Agusta, promised that it will bring the MV Agusta brand back on World Superbike racing tracks and yes he has finally made the official announcement. After more than than 37 years MV Agusta Reparto Corse is returning to World Superbike racing in partnership with the Yakhnich Motorsport Team.

Financing the Italian brand’s efforts is Russian businessman Alexander Yakhnich who, if you don’t recognize, is the organiser of World Superbike’s round in Russia. Now for MV Agusta it is really important to perform really well on the track next year and therefore they are aiming for the top spots with the MV Agusta F3 675. Yakhnich Motorsport Team is a really accomplished team and we believe they will come in really handy for MV Agusta on race day.

Starting back with the 2014 WSBK, initially MV Agusta plans to develop itself according to WSBK stage as it coming back after a really long time, but Castiglioni said at EICMA that the team is certain it will be emerge as a strong contender in seasons to come with the MV Agusta F4RR.

“Our official return to racing is a very ambitious and important step for us,” said Castiglioni. “Racing has always been my dad’s greatest passion and this drove the brand to victory in many disciplines of motorcycle racing, from 500cc GP to Paris-Dakar and to the first Superbike World Championship titles won with Ducati.

“His dream was to see MV back to racing and I am so proud to be the one doing so.”

The name of the riders have not been disclosed yet, though expectations are an announcement will be made by the end of this month.
