Avintia unveils MotoGP, Moto2 machines

Over in Moto2, Avintia Blusens marries experience with youth by signing inaugural series champion Toni Elias with British newcomer Kyle Smith. A boost for Elias, who struggled on his return to Moto2 last season, he is determined to make the most of his renewed opportunity.

"I am very happy because I am at ease in the Blusens Avintia and I have the impression that things will go well. I think that we are going to get ready and I want to take the opportunity the team is giving me to achieve good results.

“The team and I are working at the maximum and I hope the season will be as good as possible and that we will meet again next season in another fantastic day such as this one has been."

Smith, meanwhile, arrives at world championship level having plied his trade in Spain. Even so, though he is aware the learning curve is likely to be steep, he is ready for the challenge.

"It will be my first World Championship year and thanks to the Blusens Avintia I will have the opportunity to learn next to great riders and with a fantastic team. I have to learn and go step by step, but I hope to progress to obtain good results."

Avintia Blusens will campaign a Kawasaki-powered FTR in MotoGP and a Kalex chassis in Moto2.
