Luca Scassa says there is no truth to rumours placing him on an Alstare-prepared MV Agusta Supersport machine in 2012.

The Italian, who has previously raced with the iconic motorcycling marque in the CIV Italian and AMA Superbike series', has been linked to riding on the firm's new F3 machine in the World Supersport Championship under the guidance of recently-departed WSBK team Alstare.

However, though Scassa - a three-time WSS race winner with ParkinGO Yamaha in 2011 - admits the idea of re-joining MV Agusta appeals to him, the rumours are otherwise false.

"MV Agusta for 2012 !?!? Would be very nice but I deny the news. I'll keep you updated as soon as I can," Scassa wrote on his official Facebook page.

With Suzuki withdrawing its backing from Alstare in the World Superbike Championship, Francis Batta revealed he had been keen to form a relationship with MV Agusta for a possible entry in 2012. However, while the Belgian recently insisted he had held no formal talks with the manufacturer, a potential deal may still be forthcoming.

MV Agusta has not competed in the World Superbike Championship since 2007 when Christian Zaiser raced a privately-funded F4 for the LBR Racing Team.
