CM – MotoGP: Triumph and Dorna extend Moto2 engine partnership

0

After signing a new contract with Dorna, Triumph will remain the sole engine supplier in the Moto2 World Championship for the next three seasons (2022-2024).

Since 2019, Triumph has been providing all Moto2 teams with race-optimized 765 cc triple engines are available, each based on the Street Triple RS engine. The racing engine turns harder and delivers a peak power of more than 140 hp – an increase of over 17% compared to the production engine.

The Triumph engine has broken several records since it was acquired by Honda. New lap records were set at 34 events, including records that have been broken and broken year after year. Meanwhile, the Triumph engine also drove Stefano Manzi to the very first 300 km / h top speed record in the history of Moto2 on Phillip Island. The record speed was reached in 2019.

« Moto2 was the perfect environment to demonstrate and prove the reliability and performance advantages of our triple engines, where the top 20 qualifying times were consistently within one second » said Steve Sargent, Triumph’s chief product officer. « Not only has it increased our profile and credibility on the world stage, for me the success of Moto2 was also an incredible catalyst that rekindled the passion for racing within Triumph motorcycles.

 » I’m very excited to have been involved in this groundbreaking activity for Triumph and look forward to the extension for three more seasons drivers and teams. « 

The power and torque increase of the Triumph engine as well as a more advanced electronics package seem to have a positive effect on the MotoGP graduates – which suggests that Dorna’s hopes of closing the gap between MotoGP and Moto2 are becoming reality.
