    Triumph Engines Power the MOTO2

    We are proud to announce Triumph Motorcycles has been chosen as the exclusive engine supplier to the Moto2TM Championship from the 2019 season onwards.

    A three-year deal was recently signed with Dorna - the commercial rights holder of MotoGPTM - to supply a race tuned 765cc Triumph triple engine that’s been developed and tuned for a major step up in power and torque.

    Paul Stroud, Chief Commercial Officer for Triumph Motorcycles, said; “This is a significant moment for Triumph that brings an exciting new chapter to our 109-year racing history and builds on our celebrated TT and Supersports race winning triple engines.
    We look forward to a long and thrilling relationship with Dorna and the Moto2TM teams, riders and fans.” 

    The Engine

    The race specification Triumph 765cc Moto2™ engine, based on the powerplant that fuels the 2017 Triumph Street Triple RS, has been developed to allow the engine to breathe more freely and rev harder than the production bike; increasing overall performance. Other changes have been made specifically to adapt the engine for race use, including these modifications:

    • Modified cylinder head with revised inlet and exhaust ports for optimised gas flow
    • Titanium valves and stiffer valve springs for increased rpm
    • Low Output race kit alternator for reduced inertia
    • Taller 1st gear ratio
    • Race developed slipper clutch which will be tuneable
    • Specific race ECU; which will be developed with Magneti Marelli
    • Revised engine covers for reduced width
    • Different sump to allow for improved header run

    The new Moto2™ engine is a significant development of the race-winning Daytona 675R engine that has powered supersports wins at the Isle of Man TT, Daytona 200 and British Supersports Championships in 2014 and 2015.
