Triumph Motorcycles has signed a new contract to continue as Exclusive Engine Supplier for the FIM Moto2™ World Championship for another five seasons, from 2025-2029. This will see Triumph powering the Moto2TM teams for a decade, enabling riders and teams to thrive and develop using its record-breaking 765 triple engine.

To build on the success so far and further improve the engine’s performance and capability, Triumph will develop a full new race gearbox, which will debut in the 2025 season. Some improvements are already underway, with the engineering team testing parts after use in this year’s Moto2TM rounds to improve gear selection for the 2024 season.”

Steve Sargent, Chief Product Officer, Triumph Motorcycles, said: “Moto2TM continues to be an excellent platform to showcase the performance and capability of our 765 triple engines, driving demand for our new Street Triple 765 range. Over the last five years, we’ve used the race engine programme to drive enhancements to the 765 engine and gain insights and learnings that we’ve used to develop further and evolve our Street Triple 765 range. Our reputation for bulletproof durability, reliability and class-leading performance has grown, driving our global sales.

“Just as the Moto2TM teams make every lap count, our engineers have used every opportunity to enhance every dimension of the engine performance, from speed, power and torque, to revs, cylinder pressure and compression ratio. This has enabled us to deliver track improvements each season, achieving shorter race times, faster top speeds and lap times, more winners and closer racing.

“The new race gearbox will make a big difference to the results that riders can achieve on track in Moto2, and in advance of this, our engineering team is already testing and developing improvements in gear selection, testing parts after use in this year’s Moto2TM rounds.”

Carlos Ezpeleta, Dorna Sports Chief Sporting Officer: “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 has 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.”

The winner’s bike, an exclusive Street Triple 765 RS, has been unveiled at Silverstone on the Day of Champions as competition for the Triumph Triple Trophy heats up. 

Designed to recognise impressive performances throughout the field, the 2023 competition has been fiercely fought so far. Pedro Acosta’s incredible lap times see him at the top of the leaderboard with 26 points, closely followed by Dennis Foggia in 2nd place with 21 points, thanks to his excellent race progression. Sam Lowes and Alonso Lopez share 3rd place with 17 points.  This year’s winner will follow in the footsteps of Moto2TM greats Jeremy Alcoba, Raul Fernandez and Marco Bezzecchi.
