Team Federal Oil Gresini has taken the wraps off its new-look Moto2 racer as testing gets underway at Almeria in Spain this week.

Belgian Xavier Simeon will ride the Suter MMX2 in the Moto2 World Championship this season in the colours of Indonesian oil company Federal Oil.

Team boss Fausto Gresini said: "Together with Federal Oil, our partner for the third consecutive year, we have set ourselves the objective of being consistent frontrunners in the forthcoming Moto2 World Championship.

"We are confident that we can achieve very good results with Xavier Simeon, a very fast and experienced rider. During the two-day test that will begin tomorrow in Almeria our main goal is to continue the good work we already did last November, in order to reach a good base ahead of the first Grand Prix."

Simeon finished 12th in the Moto2 World Championship last year, when he rode for the Maptaq SAG Zelos Team.
