Dunlop tests MV Agusta TT Racer

Road race hero.. North west 200....Ulster Grand Prix winner and TT hero William Dunlop has been testing The MV Agusta F3 around Donnington Park race track....and gives favourable impressions.
I see the 'race' bike is also to use a 'microtek' ecu.
This 'possibly' should have been in the 'racing' section??.....but I'll risk it!
Brian.

Lol, thanks for that Brian, Ade and I was talking about it just yesterday. Good to see, and be good to see if Chris is involved with the ECU development.

Yep John...today's MCN.
Yeah I know exactly what you mean about his brother Michael.
Michael is so exciting to watch...just like Martin Finnegan was...but boy he rides on the limit 'every' time. He'll 'win it ..or bin it'!!. A bit like 'Philip Mc Callen'.
William is very smooth ...like 'Joey'. A super rider..and lovely, very quiet guy.
I'm not sure he'll actually ride the MV at the TT...as he is getting great results with 'Wilson Craig's' Honda's.
But His initial impressions according to this article seem very favourable on the F3...and I'd love to see MV Agusta being raced on the 'Roads' here again next season. They certainly were a 'spectacle' when 'Finnegan' used them over here...and I'l love to see that again! With 'William'...he is a fantastic rider, so I'm hoping!
Brian.

Yeah Dons, I wonder if Chris himself is involved...it does say 'X bikes' are involved with the 'microtek' ecu...I'm sure Chris will keep us posted.
Here's another couple of 'clearer' photos of this detail...out of interest...as the last were a little outta focus.

Yeah, i read that bit too and went ?????? What i actually said was "when we removed the road parts, we dropped the weight down to 161kg from 177kg. One of the biggest weight savings was the exhaust, the Arrow exhaust was lighter than the box it came in. And at that we havent finished taking everything off we don't need, so the bike will be underweight."

They condensed it quite a lot.

But the test went really well.
