 It has been announced that Triumph will supply the next three seasons of Moto2 with 765cc engines.


The honda engine will supply Triumph with 765cc engines for Moto2 for three years 

It's a pleasure for Triumph, the newest British motorcycle manufacturer. The company has reached agreement with Dorna to supply the 765cc inline three-cylinder motor to the Moto2 team for the next three years. The contract will take effect immediately in the 2022-2024 season.




Many races People tend to overlook Dorna's original intent to widen the base of Moto2. Honda's 600cc inline four-cylinder engine was replaced with a 765cc inline three-cylinder engine from a British manufacturer.


During the first season of engine changes, we have set a new record in many

Moto2 races, whether it is speed per lap. In driving for SKY Racing Team VR46 on

Phillip Island circuit in Australia, Nicol* Bulega set the top speed record at 300.6

kilometers. Clearly, it affectsthe racer as well. By achieving better performance and taking the podium, this class

moves upto MotoGP. A win in the first season since the team moved up


Repsol Honda's 2020 performance with Alex Marquez might not be perfect.

Nevertheless, he was able to place himself on the podium in second place at

Aragon, Spain, with two victories over KTM's South African Brad Binder and

Parmac Racing's Jorge Martin. Pole Positions and podiums from the competition

consistently prove that Moto2 riders with the 765cc engine have a more mature

racing style.


In an interview following the contract with Dorna, Steve Sargent, Chief

Product Officer of Triumph Motorcycles, said, " Moto2 has provided us with

a great opportunity to demonstrate our reliability and performance


Engines with triple cylinders. For us, the success of Moto2 is also a powerful catalyst that elevates our global profile and credibility. As a result, racing under the Triumph brand has become a passion. The next three seasons will be thrilling for Triumph, and we're eagerly looking forward to taking part in the main event. Performance of engines is one of our top priorities. The driver and team will definitely appreciate it. ”


Triumph will supply the race teams with engines from the camp's top-of-the-line Street Triple RS. However, each team will need to improve the exhaust system and various electronics. Race engines are required to be 138 horsepower, 17% more powerful than factory engines, pursuant to FIM and IRTA regulations, which is clearly an advantage for Triumph in terms of its future engine development plans.

"Our first year working together has been very successful," said Carlos Ezpeleta, Managing Director of Dorna Sports. Additionally, I would like to thank Triumph for their help and hard work over the first three years. This project resulted in positive results, particularly during the pandemic. It has been verified that the Moto3TM, Moto2TM, and MotoGPTM procedures are consistent. I am satisfied with the partnership overall, and I am confident that the next three years will be exciting.

This three-year extension of the contract should give Triumph enough time to store engine development data. The Triumph Daytona is still on our wishlist, a full-fledged sports car from the company in the form of a production bike, not just a racetrack. Meanwhile, we are still waiting for each other...
