Moto2, the second tier of the MotoGP championship, has signed a five-year contract extension with Triumph Motorcycles.
- Triumph to continue as exclusive engine supplier until 2029
- The company will also manufacture a race gearbox for use from 2025
Context: The contract extension sets in from the start of the 2025 season, when the new race gearbox is set to debut. Some improvements are already underway, with the engineering team testing parts after use in this year’s Moto2 rounds in order to make improvements in gear selection for the 2024 season.
Comment: Carlos Ezpeleta, chief sporting officer of Dorna Sports, said: “Our first five years working with Triumph are proving to be a real success, with great racing, riders achieving new Moto2 records across the board and impressive reliability from the off. We wanted this collaboration to help to define that step between Moto3 and the MotoGP class, and I think Triumph have achieved just that. We’re really happy with the way the partnership is evolving as well, with more innovation and development still to come, and we're looking forward to five more exciting years together.”
Coming next: The Moto2 season continues this weekend in support of the MotoGP race at Silverstone.
