Moto2 motorcycle manufacturer, MOTO2, has launched a new range of motorcycles, dubbed as the MOTO2 MV Agusta. Motorcycle fans and enthusiasts will definitely be able to relive some of the glory days of that open class, which has been won 4 times by the Italian company, in the early part of the seventies and early eighties. The MV Agusta is designed with riders in mind, and it has received positive reviews from enthusiasts and journalists alike.
MOTO2 have invested millions of dollars into developing a brand new range of MV Agusta motorcycles, and they promise that they will be the best bikes for the rider. Although there are very few official details available so far, we do know that they are based on the Yamaha YZF-R6.
It seems likely that the MV Agusta will be a scaled down version of the more famous Yamaha YZF-R6. MOTO2 have confirmed that the bike will feature a smaller engine, but it is not known just how much power it will make. The MV Agusta, also named as the MB RX will also feature a lower center of gravity, and an improved chassis. There will also be more powerful brakes.
Although it is not clear yet, it seems highly likely that the new MV Agusta series will feature a completely different style to the existing range of MOTO motorcycles. Although it is expected that the bike will feature some form of dual clutch gearbox, the exact details of the system will still have to be confirmed by MOTO2.
Although it is believed that the MV Agusta is a new bike developed by MOTO, there are several rumors that the company has already acquired a number of motorcycles from a Japanese company, Kawasaki. However, no official confirmation has yet been released from Kawasaki, although they did announce that they had entered into a deal with MOTO to develop an all new model, using their Ninja engine. It is possible that Kawasaki is planning to use the same technology that has made the new MV Agusta such a popular motorcycle, but it is unlikely that they will build an entirely new bike.
We do however, know that the new MV Agusta will feature a host of features, including a modern twin cylinder engine, and a variety of other technologies. This should mean that the bike will be a modernized and updated version of its previous counterpart, and it will also make riding it that much more enjoyable.
