Does this mean anything for the future of MV in WSBK ? BTW if anyone hasn't seen yet sam lowes will not be riding for us next year as he decided to sign with a moto2 effort.... Are they still going to put bikes on the grid?

Taper I think you missed something along the way. MV was never going to put bikes on the grid, it was a private team which where negotiating with MV to try and put an MV on the grid.

That's right mate, it's private teams using MV's with MV support (technical more than financial I would imagine), even if they do mention "MV Agusta's proposed factory-funded return to World Superbikes" .
And that's very different to a full MV factory team, which would be run and funded by MV Agusta.

Taper, basically what's going to happen is that Yakhnich Motorsports is going to use their giant pocketful of Russian money to run MV's in WSS and WSBK next year with technical assistance and parts from MV. No money will come from MV as they have none to spend on racing beyond what they are sending Parkin Go's way. What remains to be seen is what is going to happen to Parkin Go if Yakhnich runs F3's as they have a 3 year contract with MV.

No. It would be a privateer effort.
