re: ""Our official return to racing is a very ambitious and important step for us,” said Giovanni Castiglioni"

correct. but FYI. this means you've created an "expectation". you now have a burden of showing Yaknich (and me) that you understand what this means. you have a great opportunity here, don't blow it.

@shamarone.........and you've won how many races in any class over the last 50 years?

Yaknich is only a racing team, and as successful as they have been over the last couple of years they only know about spannering bikes, nothing about designing and manufacturing them with all the compromises that entails. This is a feather in any racing teams cap, it's up to Yaknich not to blow it.

This is such great news. Giovanni has really taken his fathers company by the horns and pushed forward .This is really incredible of him, and massively difficult, especially in todays not so bike friendly economic climate.

I always root for MV in Supersport. I really do praise Giovanni for committing to racing in such a personal manner, no other company does it like this. This is truly the old fashioned way of business. The owner of the company making statements about all the racing and essentially all new announcements the company has to release. This is what you call true passion.

And boy, does MV make some of the most beautiful bikes. I rode an 2012 F4R, they look so much better in flesh than in pictures. Can't wait for next season!

Great to hear that MV will be in WSB and continue in WSS. Hopefully they'll pick good riders and as they develop it will be nice to see them be competitive and eventually challenge for championships. It seems that Suzuki and Honda are improving and hopefully Aprilia will continue challenging and now with Dell'igna (sp?) at Ducati they'll come around as well. Next year should be another exciting season in WSB.

Awesome to see a new manufacturer in Superbikes - especially one so prestigious with a long successful history in racing. Hope the new bike is up to speed & competitive though expect results after a year or so of development.
