MV Agusta tie up with Yakhnich, will enter World Superbikes in 2015


MV Agusta have signed an agreement Russian team Yakhnich Motorsport, which won the World Supersport championship this year. With this agreement, the new ‘MV Agusta Reparto Corse - Yakhnich Motorsport’ team will participate in the World Superbike and World Supersport championships, starting in 2014. Plus, they will also jointly work on building replicas of their factory race bikes for satellite teams.

The goal for MV and Yakhnich is to compete in World Supersport with the F3, in 2014, and at the same develop the F4 RR for the 2015 World Superbikes season. “The official return to racing is a very important and ambitious step for MV Agusta. However, my decision came directly from my heart. Racing was always my father's greatest passion and he led his companies to victory in every form of racing – from the 500 GP Class and the Paris-Dakar with the legendary Cagiva, to the first world championships won in Superbike with Ducati, as well as off-road with Husqvarna. But his true dream was to see MV race again. I am very proud to be able to see this happen,” said Giovanni Castiglioni, President of MV Agusta. “We have worked very hard to achieve great results in 2013. With MV Agusta, new and important opportunities have been opened up to us. We are very pleased with this agreement and we are looking forward to achieving a number of victories very soon,” added Alexander Yakhnich, President of Yakhnich Motorsport.
