After a 42-year absence, MV Agusta is returning to grand prix racing next season, as a manufacturer in the Moto2 class.

The Italian factory - which has joined forces with Forward Racing for the new project - will use a steel trellis frame with aluminium side plates, an aluminium swingarm and Ohlins suspension to house the new-for-2019 765cc Triumph Moto2 engine.

"I am really proud to see the dream to re-join the Motorcycling World Championship come true," said MV Agusta president Giovanni Castiglioni.

Forward team owner Giovanni Cuzari added: “I have been chasing this dream since Claudio Castiglioni’s era. Many times I have insisted with MV Agusta for a return in MotoGP and when Giovanni has taken the place of his father, I have often encouraged him to believe in such an ambitious project. Finally he did it and today, 42 years later, we will take the first steps with the Moto2 MV Agusta prototype."
"Today’s is a starting point to get to bring this brand back really high. A special thanks goes to all those who supported and support this project, now the attention goes to the track.”
