Lewis Hamilton & MV Agusta Dragster RR

Lewis Hamilton & MV Augusta Dragster RR

We are thrilled to announce that MV Agusta has teamed up with 2x Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton to release a stunning new version of the Dragster RR motorcycle.

Working closely with the MV Agusta CRC (Castiglioni Research Center) design team, Lewis ensured that bike specifications and performance perfectly matched his requirements. The creation of the Dragster RR bike comprised of an on-going collaborative process between the F1 World Champion and the MV Agusta Team, from concept to hand assembled production.

Giovanni Castiglioni, President and CEO of MV Agusta, said: “We are proud to be partnering with a passionate racer like Lewis Hamilton. It is great news for us and for everyone around the world that loves MV Agusta”.

All limited edition Lewis Hamilton Dragster RR bikes will be hand assembled by the expertly skilled craftspeople at the Schiranna (Varese) headquarters.

In France a superb Leon Camier finishes fifth: best result ever for the MV Agusta F4 in the WSBK championship

In France a superb Leon Camier finishes fifth: best result ever for the MV Agusta F4 in the WSBK championship

As expected, the protagonist at Magny Cours was the weather. Rain and autumn temperatures conditions race procedures, cancelling the WSS warm-up and making the first WSBK race a wet one, delayed fifteen minutes and shortened from twenty-two to nineteen laps.

This was a situation that brought out Leon Camier's riding qualities and his feeling with the F4 RC. The Brit began the weekend with an excellent seventh time in qualifiers and ended it by riding a textbook Race 1. Off the line well, the Brit fell immediately in line behind reigning world champion and wet ride specialist Guintoli, fending off attacks on his position by Haslam's Aprilia and the two Ducatis ridden by Davies and Baiocco.

Seven laps from the end Leon began his comeback, first breaking away
from the two Englishmen and four laps later losing the Italian, who he
left in his exhaust to fly under the chequered flag in fifth place, the best ever result for the MV Agusta F4 RC.

This is a gift the English rider has given to all the Reparto Corse team fans, many of whom were on hand directly from the Schiranna headquarters. Unfortunately,
in Race 2 some problems with the gearbox kept Camier from repeating the
performance, finishing in 15th place after a lightning fast start which rocketed him into fourth place.

In the WSS race, shortened two laps due to the wet tarmac, things were further conditioned by a red flag that came out after Manfredi's Honda had engine trouble in the fourth lap. After the restart Zanetti made his nth comeback ride, starting off slowly but skilfully clawing his way back up to finish in fourth place, snatched in the last lap from Smith's Honda CBR. It was a difficult weekend for Nico Terol, who struggled to find the right feeling in the wet, finishing the race in fourteenth place,
whereas the race was won by American rider Jacobsen ahead of Kenan
Sofuoglu who, with this second place finish, takes his fourth
championship title.

The next appointment will be the last round of the season which will be held on 18 October at the Losail circuit in Qatar.



The Spaniard, following his excellent performance at Jerez, will
take to the track under the Reparto Corse colours at Magny Cours and

Called upon to urgently step in for the injured Jules Cluzel, Nico Terol today signed an agreement to ride in the final two races of the 2015 season.

He'll pull on his new MV Agusta Reparto Corse leathers this weekend in France for the penultimate round of the championship, which will be held at the Magny Cours circuit in Burgundy, to then finish out the season at Losail, in Qatar, on 18 October.

On his début at Jerez he used his clean and efficient riding style to
adapt quickly to the new category and finished his first WSS race in
fifth place.

“I'm truly happy about this chance that MV Agusta has given me. I
had never raced in WSS and I didn't know how the bike and grooved tyres
would react, so the Jerez race was sort of a “running-in” race for me,
with respect to both the bike and the Reparto Corse team. Now I'm
confident that I can set my sights on the podium and, together with
Zanetti, earn the points needed to bring the Manufacturer title home to

Nico Terol was born on 27 September 1988 at Alcoy, near Alicante. He
began racing at a very young age, taking his first win at Indianapolis
in 2008 in the 125 GP class. Three years later he earned the 125 world
title, winning eight races. He also raced in Moto2 for three seasons,
taking two second place finishes, and this year he made his début in
WSBK and then moved to WSS at Jerez.

Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta are strengthening their
partnership ties with a jointly designed show bike. The spectacular MV
Agusta F3 800 is painted in the exclusive colour “AMG solar beam” and as
such adopts the colour concept of the Mercedes-AMG GT. Black wheels,
further black highlights and the AMG logo on the sides of the trim
equally underscore the close ties with the sports car and performance
brand of Mercedes-Benz.

The stuff of performance enthusiast’s dreams: a thoroughbred sports
car and high-quality sports bike featuring a complementary look.
Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta have made this dream come true by presenting a
highly dynamic pairing at the 2015 IAA International Motor Show in
Frankfurt. Alongside the Mercedes-AMG GT, the MV Agusta F3 800 show bike
gleams in an identical look – in the exclusive AMG paint finish “solar
beam”. This aesthetically and technically impressive vision of the
matching look on two and four wheels visualises the passion, which the
two brands have for motorsports and for combining aspects of technology,
performance and design to achieve perfection. To this effect, the
partnership between Mercedes-AMG and MV Agusta is set to continue after
the IAA show in Frankfurt under the joint brand claim “Beyond

Zanetti hot from the Schiranna Reparto Corse. The F3 RC, produced in a
limited edition of 100 bikes in the 675 configuration and 250 in the
meatier 800 configuration, faithfully reproduces the graphics of the
Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti motorbike. To certify the originality
of each bike, every F3 RC is autographed by both riders, #16 Cluzel on
the right side panel and #87 Lorenzo Zanetti on the left.

At Jerez Team Reparto Corse reacts to the loss of Cluzel with character


The Andalusian weekend began with a shock for the Reparto Corse team: Jules Cluzel’s crash on Friday in the second free practice session at
over 200 km/h, with a consequent fracture to his left tibia and
dislocated right shoulder. It was the end of the dream to bring the 38th
world championship title home to Schiranna, a result that well within
reach of the Frenchman who, during the 2015 season took three wins, four second places, five fastest laps and six pole positions. However, the disappointment did not crack the integrity of the Reparto Corse team, which finished the weekend putting Lorenzo Zanetti on the podium and achieving the best performance of the season with Camier. The performance of Spaniard Nico Terol was also consistent, taking a strong fifth place.

In the race Lorenzo Zanetti, after a poor start and after getting away from Faccani and Smith, settled stably into third place, making up ground on Jacobsen in the final laps, but not enough to make an attack on his second place behind race winner Sofuoglu.

Nico Terol, 125 class world champion in 2011 also put in a good performance in his WSS début.
A new bike, tyres and adversaries did not intimidate him, so much that
he even held onto fourth place for a few laps behind Zanetti, crossing
under the chequered flag in fifth.

In WSBK Leon Camier, after missing out on qualifying in Q2 by a hair because of a malfunction with the quick-shift, rode
two superb races. In Race 1 he finished in 9th place after riding in
eighth place during the race 2 ahead of world champion Sylvain Guintoli,
confirming the efficient upgrades made on his F4RC, which here at Jerez
raced with a new swingarm and a modified exhaust system.

Lorenzo Zanetti #87 had this to say after his fifth podium of the season:” I
made a mistake at the start which is my weak point. Maybe I need to
start taking some courses because my pace was up with the leaders today
and if I hadn’t lost time at the start I would have been able to battle
for the win!

The next round is scheduled for 4 October, the last European round in France at Magny Cours before the grand finale in Qatar. For the occasion more than a hundred MV Agusta employees will join the dealerships and Cluzel fans in the grand stands to support Team Reparto Corse in their quest to win the manufacturer title which currently has MV Agusta lying second at 189 points, just behind Kawasaki with 197.

In the second free practice session the duel between Cluzel and Sofuoglu
came to an end. The Frenchman fell victim to a violent crash at over
200 km/h during his 15th lap, fracturing his left tibia and dislocating
his right shoulder. This is a bitter end to a textbook season where
Jules took three wins, four second places, five fastest laps and an impressive six pole positions. For team Reparto Corse all that's left now is to defend their leadership in the manufacturer's championship. To give Lorenzo Zanetti a hand in this undertaking the team called on Nico Terol, 2011 world champion in the 125 class. Whilst
awaiting news on Jules Cluzel's recovery time, the 26 year old Spaniard
will be on the track tomorrow for qualifying astride the Frenchman's
number 88 F3 RC.

The Missoni branded MV Agusta F3 will be on display at MAGA during the Missoni, l'Arte e il Colore show

The Missoni branded MV Agusta F3 will be on display at MAGA during the Missoni, l'Arte e il Colore show

The motorbike will be displayed until the 15th November which will
end in an auction with all proceeds being donated to the Museum in
Gallarate, Italy.

It won in its debut and has left the racetrack for the museum,
becoming a precious piece for collectors of motorbike art. This is the
fortunate destiny of the MV Agusta F3 Missoni that Jules Cluzel raced to
success this past 21 June on the track in Misano, paving the way for a
new battle in the race to conquer the WSS championship title. Beyond the
results of the race, fans certainly can’t forget the splendid “Missoni,
l’Arte e il Colore” image, which was inspired by a painting by Ottavio,
adorning the aerodynamic shapes of the motorbikes of the Reparto Corse
team. A pattern that has been replicated today in a truly unique way for
a piece based on the MV Agusta F3 800 and displayed in the area of
MA*GA dedicated to the show “Missoni l'Arte e il Colore.”

Beyond just the engine size – 800 cc instead of 675 cc – the motorbike,
which will be auctioned off at the end of the exhibition, stands out
from the original for its carbon license plate with the Reparto Corse
logo bearing the numbers 001/001 as well as for the Missoni logo outline
on the petrol tank with the words “Unique Replica World Supersport
Winner at Misano Circuit 2015,” made all the more valuable with Jules
Cull’s signature.
