Every season has a story of its own and it all starts with the many changes that make the upcoming racing year different to the one that drew to a close. New rider arrivals and departures, rule changes, potential calendar modifications and many more variables create a new mix that heavily shapes the season to come.
2015 will be no different, with many changes, large and small in store for teams, riders and manufacturers. After being crowned the 2014 WorldSBK Champion less than one and a half months ago, Sylvain Guintoli will begin his first title defence aboard a much different machine than the one he won the championship on in Qatar.

We've already seen the future of Triumph’s Bonneville line with the new water-cooled prototype parallel-twin and now we hear that the firm is working on revamping the other models that make up the foundation of its range.
Next up will be a revamped 1050 Speed Triple, with significant engine updates and a host of new electronics to bring it in line with the next-generation emissions laws and to add a little sparkle to its on-paper specifications.
MV has released yet another bike based on their 800cc triple. In addition to the Rivale 800, the Turismo Veloce 800, the Brutale 800 and 800 Dragster, and the F3 800, there is now the Stradale 800. The Stradale fits somewhere between the naked sport Brutale and the more sport-touring Turismo Veloce. My impression of the new Stradale from the photos and specs makes me think of it as a sport-tourer "lite". Here's some of the info from MV's website:
- Traction control, electronic quickshifter, ABS with rear-wheel lift-up mitigation, multiple engine maps: the Stradale 800 incorporates a comprehensive array of MV Agusta technology. A specially designed frame, side panniers with integrated light clusters, increased suspension travel, 16-litre fuel tank. Each component has been designed to provide unique riding sensations. Whether you’re into sports-style riding. Or touring. Or both.
