MV Agusta to race in Superstock classes

Robinsons of Rochdale and Grant Racing team up to enter MV Agusta machinery in the Superstock 1000 and 600 classes.
MV Agusta will be represented in the National Superstock 1000 and 600 classes in 2013 it has been announced, rather than in the Superbike category as originally anticipated.

The Italian marque was being primed for a return to Superbike competition after Robinsons of Rochdale revealed plans to introduce the F4 machine into the series late last year.

However, a change of plans will see Robinsons team with Grant Racing to enter both Superstock classes, with riders set to be announced later this month.

No great surprise, given that Ducati with all their experience took a year to shakedown the Panigale before taking it to SBK. Good luck to them, they make some of the prettiest bikes I've ever seen.

Suppose the question is why? They had already stated they was going superbike racing! Are they expecting regulation changes and don't want to spend developing a superbike when regulations may come closer to superstock or supersport? Because going into superstock is risky, if it isn't a frontrunner they carnt blame on lack of development! The r1 is a perfect example, in superstock it simply isn't competitiv, but with more open rules and room for development it is.
