Triumph to replace Honda as Moto2 engine supplier

  • 11/01/2017

Triumph will enter the Moto2 championship as its sole engine supplier from the start of the 2019 season.

The British manufacturer will replace Honda, whose contract as an engine supplier to the middle class expires at the end of 2018.


Moto2 was born in 2010, when the category replaced the 250cc bikes, and the change came with the introduction of the four-cylinder CBR 600RR engines from the Japanese manufacturer.


Nine years after that transition, and due to a lack of interested parties, promoter Dorna decided to search for an alternative.


According to a report in Speedweek, the first talks took place with MV Agusta, which ruled out the project on cost grounds.


A second option led to Triumph, which was delighted to get involved in a top championship, and that will supply the teams with a three-cylinder, 750cc engine that will produce around 160bhp.


The agreement between the Hinckley manufacturer and Dorna has already been signed, and it is likely to be announced during the opening round of the 2017 season on the March 26 weekend in Qatar.
