MV Agusta USA LLC is proud to return to the racing circuit in the USA and to be affiliated with the efforts of four independent teams.
The weekend of April 10-12, 2015 marked the first race in the new MotoAmerica series. Four independent teams brought their dedicated efforts to the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas with pilots leveraging the stock power of MV Agusta’s F3 675, the same model seen in the World SuperSport (WSS) series. Teams competed in the MotoAmerica Supersport class.
The teams (in alphabetical order) and riders include:

As part of MV Agusta USA LLC’s contribution, approved teams have access to parts and components from Reparto Corse, MV Agusta SpA’s official race division. For the race at Circuit of the Americas, each team rode with a stock ECU.
This is a developmental year for racing in the USA; as the teams progress through the MotoAmerica Series, they will continue to provide feedback on the F3 675 and contribute to ongoing product development.
MV Agusta USA wishes these teams continued growth and success.
