ParkinGO MV Agusta is revealed

MV Agusta unveils its much vaunted World Supersport Championship contender at a ceremony in Italy.
MV Agusta has formally unveiled the bike that will herald its much anticipated return to international motorsport competition in 2013, when it embarks on a full factory campaign in the World Supersport Championship.

The iconic Italian marque announced plans to field a pair of works-backed F3 675 machines in November as part of a collaboration with Team ParkinGO, series champions with Chaz Davies in 2011 and race winners at Superbike level.

Taking the wraps off the race-ready machine during a ceremony at its base in Schiranna, the three-cylinder bike was revealed in MV Agusta's corporate red and white colours, with a touch of green added to reflect the tricolore of its Italian heritage.

Set to be campaigned by experienced Italian Roberto Rolfo and British rookie Christian Iddon this year, ParkinGO gave the F3 its first shakedown at Cartagena earlier this week, though it won't go up against its main rivals until the team arrives in Australia for the official pre-season test at Phillip Island in just over two weeks' time.

MV Agusta's arrival, coupled to a privateer Suzuki effort run by Suriano Racing, means six manufacturers will be represented full-time in the World Supersport Championship for the first time since 1999.
