WSBK » Yakhnich confirms WSBK move without Lowes

I have heard & read that the MV F4RR Superbike has become a much sought after ride . If you think about it , for a rider coming up from a lesser series such as AMA or BSB Superbike it is a no lose situation .The MV Agusta F4RR isn't expected to do well out of the box.Yet The MV AGUSTA brand will draw ALOT of TELEVISION and commentator exposer . So if the BSB/AMA superbike rider does well Great, if he doesn't do as well as expected he can blame the MV F4RRs lack of development .

WSBK » Sam Lowes tests MV Agusta Superbike

WSBK racing enthusiasts and TV commentators LOVE to see a grid/races with many different manufactures and MV has a great history back story. IN WSS this year the Camera and TV commentators put TWICE the Coverage of the MV Agusta F3 675R PAGO Team running in third than they did the LEADER/WINNER LOWES ON HIS YAMAHA. No one expects the MV Agusta F4RR to be a winner right out the box . BUT people will come wanting to see the MV marque on the World Superbike stage again and will cheer them on even if they are not winning . You have to admire MV Agusta engineers. MV Agusta is a small company compared to the Japanese Manufacterers. Yet this small company has been able to take a 10 YEAR OLD ENGINE DESIGN and produce MORE horsepower than ANY of the Japanese Manufactures in the literbike class. I am not saying they are going to win right out of the gate , but I think they will surprise the nay sayers and be able to run in the top 5 . And with Lowes as there rider podium f

MotoGP » Pedrosa, Hayden talk one engine less - for 2013

BTW I have nothing agains CRT bikes/teams in fact I like the addtion and the comparison of worked superbike engines vs factory engines . BUT They shouldnt be used as a tool to push out the factories from MotoGP racing , THEY DO PAY THE BILLS . the factories should be left alone to race 1000cc prototypes unhindered . If Ezpeleta really just wanted cheaper close racing he would allow the CRT bikes/teams to run 1200cc production engines (displacement is cheap horsepower remember?) and then the CRT bikes would have competitive Horsepower and the factories would also be happy. Unfortunatly this cheaper racing/competitve racing plea is being used as an excuse to impliment rules on the factories until they get nothing out of racing and leave .Ezpeleta has shot down factories solutions and adds new rules almost daily . he has even stated he expects the factories to leave and is hoping the public is to stupid to figure out what he is up to
