Triumph Motorcycles will be the exclusive engine supplier to the Moto2 world championship for another three seasons, from 2022-2024. The British brand will continue to provide its record-breaking 765cc triple engine to be used in all Moto2 bikes.
Since the start of the 2019 season, Triumph Motorcycles has provided all of the teams with race-tuned 765cc triples, each of which is based on the class-leading Street Triple RS engine. With developments that allow it to breathe more freely, rev harder and deliver a peak power output of more than 140PS (an increase of over 17% on the production engine).
This 765cc triple brought to the category a much-welcomed boost in power, transforming the performance and level of competition.
Following Dorna’s intent to bring the Moto2 series closer to MotoGP, the increase in power and torque, combined with a more advanced electronics package, has provided a more relevant training and development ground whilst enhancing the overall racing in its own right.
In the last two years, Moto2 graduates have gone on to take podiums and victories in their first seasons in the premier MotoGP class. These incredible results go to prove how Moto2 has become the natural springboard for MotoGP that Dorna envisaged.
Redefining the category, records have also fallen across the board. As well as 14 different race winners since 2019 there have been lap records set at 34 events, including records that have been broken and re-broken year-on-year, and the first-ever 300+km/h top speed for a Moto2 machine. The record stands at 301.8km/h at Phillip Island, Australia.
