Romano Fenati has been named as the first signing for the new MV Agusta Moto2 project.

The Italian, a ten-time Moto3 race winner, is currently 19th in his rookie Moto2 season with the Marinelli Snipers (Kalex) Team.

"I am very happy and honoured to take part in this prestigious project and to join such a cohesive and competent group as the Forward Racing Team is," said Fenati. "Driving F2 will be a source of great pride for me and will be an important responsibility, so I will give all my contribution and my experience to achieve excellent results."

Giovanni Cuzari, whose Forward Racing team will run the new MV machines, added: "I'm really pleased to have with us, for such an ambitious and important project, a rider of the caliber of Romano Fenati . I am sure that he, like us, is hungry for important results and I believe he has the necessary experience to contribute, with my team, to bring our MV Agusta F2 back to the top of the charts".

The team's second rider is still to be announced.
