The 990cc machine features a 60-degree, V4 motor with a single crankshaft and electronic fuel injection. It will be run in a chassis based on the design of the firm\'s RGV two-stroke 500 machine.
Former world 500 champion Kenny Roberts and Spain\'s Sete Gibernau will both be given the task of making the bike competitive. The bike will remain in the colours of Telefonica MoviStar and the team will continue to be run out of Kent.
