WSBK: Maximilan Scheib set to replace Torres at MV Agusta

Jordi Torres has been on MotoGP duties recently as the rider from Rubi is replacing the injured Tito Rabat on the Avintia Ducati.

MV Agusta has decided to ‘release’ Jordi Torres from MV Agusta in order for the Barcelona rider to focus on his MotoGP stint as he replaces the injured Tito Rabat.

MV Agusta quickly announced a replacement as Maximilan Scheib will become the first ever World Superbike rider from Chile as he jumps on the MV for the first time in Argentina.

Scheib competed in the last ever World Superstock Championship onboard an Aprilia and ended the season in 3rd, 33 points behind championship winner Marcus Reitberger.

So far in 2018 MV’s best finish in World Superbike is a 5th in Italy earlier this year, and they sit in a disappointing 7th, out of 8, constructors in the standings.

Scheib will be onboard the MV in Argentina on the 12th-14th October before heading to Qatar to end the season under the lights.
