MV Agusta in WSBK in 2014

So it sounds like MV Agusta will be putting up BOTH Supersport AND Superbike teams in 2014-15. Pretty great news for the iconic racing brand. Sounds like it's with the Russian team that sponsored Sam Lowes (though without him as he moves into Moto2). I wonder whether they're going to have two Supersport teams and keep the Park n Go squad and have 4 factory bikes in Supersport.

Great to see MV making a racing comeback, especially after their last two podiums in two races.

Damn you, Corran. I haven't watched that WSS race yet.
Oh well, my fault for wandering in to this section I guess.

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Sam Lowes tested the F4RR for Yakhinch

From Crash.net

Yakhnich are close to running factory-backed MV Agustas next season, but the prospect of riding a new, undeveloped bike didn't appeal to Lowes.

“If I can go to Superbike on an Aprilia or Kawasaki and win, I'd go,” said Lowes, who sampled the MV Agusta F4 last month in a private test. “I didn't really have any offers anyway – Suzuki was the best offer and I'm not going to win on that. I can win in Moto2, I've ridden one before and I was quick. The class is hard, really hard and I'm not saying I'm going to go and win, but I feel I can be competitive straight away.

“However, in Superbike if you don't have the bike, it doesn't matter who you are, you won't win. If you put Marquez on an MV Agusta, it wouldn't win, it's not good enough.

If they do go with a 1000, I wish them well, but I think it'll be a big effort to get that on the podium, even top 5 would be amazing. If it where my money, I'd run another F3 equipped team.

agreed Donsy - the F4 simply cannot compete with the new bikes right now... better to dominate Supersport than throw money at a lost cause in superbike
