Following Pierer Mobility’s MV Agusta takeover and its integration into the KTM-centred motorcycle structure, Pierer board of directors member Hubert Trunkenpolz reveals the Italian brand could be on the brink of joining MotoGP.

Famous in the world of motorcycle racing for providing MotoGP legend Giacomo Agostini with championship-winning material, a return to the premier class could be on the cards for MV Agusta when MotoGP’s new regulations come into effect.

“We plan to bring MV Agusta back into the premier class. From 2024 to 2026 we have to get the company back on track. It’s going to take some time to stabilize all the aspects, from the product range to the production sites and also the business side.”

“However, 2027 may be a good year to enter MotoGP. Of course, KTM and MV would have to share our new 850cc engine.”

“We certainly won’t develop a separate engine for MV because the best in-house engine is only one, and we don’t want to deprive MV of that.”
