We know why BMW doesn’t join MotoGP, what about MV Augusta?

They’re in the WSBK, what’s the reason? R&D?

The top brass in those companies know they won’t be able to field a competitive team for MotoGP. To do that would cost a lot of moolah without any guarantee of success. Not many people in the boardroom will want to take that chance.

MV Agusta has no money to go racing in GP.

MV is in Moto2. If they win enough, they’ll try GPs

BMW/Kawa it’s all about ROI as Migs noted
