MV Agusta Returns to GP Motorcycle Racing After 42 Years

MV Agusta, who still retains the most titles worldwide, united with Forward Racing to write a new chapter in the history of motorcycling.

MV Agusta announced that they will re-enter GP Motorcycle Racing after a 42 year absence.

“I am really proud to see the dream to rejoin the Motorcycling World Championship come true, said MV Agusta President, Giovanni Castiglioni. “I would like to thank all our engineers, technicians and designers, plus the staff of the Forward Racing Team for having carried out this project in such a short amount of time. I want to express my gratitude to Giovanni Cuzari, as he believed in us and pushed us to do our best. Of course there is still a lot of work ahead of us, but step by step we will improve our competitiveness.”

This prestigious Italian motorcycle brand, which still retains the most titles worldwide, with an experienced racing Team, MV Agusta and Forward Racing united to write a new chapter in the history of motorcycling.

“I have been chasing this dream since Claudio (Castiglioni’s) era,” said Team Owner Giovanni Cuzari. “Many times I have insisted with MV Agusta for a return in MotoGP, and when Giovanni took the place of his father, I often encouraged him to believe in such an ambitious project. Finally he did it, and today, 42 years later, we will take the first steps with the Moto2 MV Agusta prototype. I am very emotional but aware that this is only a first outing, and that there is a huge amount of work ahead of us. I got to know closely the Castiglioni Research Centre, the true heart of MV Agusta, and now I’m convinced that we have everything to accomplish a great project: the passion and professionalism of the group guided by Paolo Bianchi, together with my fantastic team, which I thank individually, is definitely the right mix to be able to aim for the best. Today is a starting point to get to bring this brand back really high. A special thanks goes to all those who supported and support this project, now the attention goes to the track.”
