Triumph Engines In Moto 2
« on: 27 May, 2017, 10:38:36 PM »
Looks like Triumph will be taking over from Honda as Moto 2 engine supplier in 2019. They are going to use a version of the new Street Triple 765cc motor which is an evolution of the current Daytona 675 motor, not the previous Street Trip 675 mill.

Dumb move, IMHO. Honda, who know this market well, are stepping away because the class is weakening and there are no sales spin offs. Now Triumph think they can support it? One technical glitch with a new engine and they are economic toast. Triumph should be putting money into dealerships and support - becoming the Toyota of motorcycles - instead of this arbitrary foray...

It is a bit odd considering the rumors that the Daytona might be dropped from the lineup due to poor sales worldwide. Don't think a Daytona 765 would sell any better. MV Agusta was being considered before Triumph but MV seems to have new financial troubles every week. Still, it's a year and a half before it is supposed to happen, a lot could change by then.

some points well made but the market isn't all about sports bikes, Honda have pulled the CBR600 probably due to reduced sales and possibly too costly to convert to euro 4, the naked mid size bike is selling well,
will be interesting to see how the new R6 sells and who knows what Triumph have in the line up???
they are a clever company and seem to pin point the markets well,

So from the article in Motor Cycle News, it appears this is now a done deal.

Also looks like, although Triumph, would not be drawn, that a new Daytona may not be out of the question with a hint of more exciting bikes to be launched.

With the current demise of the supersport class, and the performance of the 1000 superbikes, maybe the 800 class will be the next big thing....hmmm didn't MotoGP tread this path?

Update:

I had a chance to speak with the IRTA official that oversees the technical side of the Moto2 program last weekend. He confirmed that the development was going very, very well, and that there was to be a power gain from the triples!

Just saw this video of Simon Crafar on the Triumph Moto 2 test bike. A whole grid of these snarly beasts is going to sound incredible!

Love the sound of that engine. Certainly higher revving than the 1050  :169:
