Triumph has begun their efforts to develop their 765cc Moto2 engine after being appointed as the main engine supplier for the MotoGP intermediate class in 2019.
The 2019 Moto2 Championship Engine Development Prototype race machine has been put through its phase of ongoing R&D and track session with the help of Moto2 rider, Julian Simon.
Triumph’s 765cc engine has been modified extensively from custom cylinder heads, titanium valves, race kit alternator, race slipper clutch, race ECU and many more.
The 2019 Moto2 Championship is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated race categories as Triumph begins developing their 765cc three-cylinder engine in their efforts to become the main engine supplier for the MotoGP intermediate class.
The 2019 Moto2 Championship Engine Development Prototype race machine is actually a based on the Daytona’s chassis. Paired with the race-bred 765cc engine, this makes this particular bike the first ever Daytona 765. Exciting times ahead for Daytona enthusiasts, perhaps?
Together with the help of Moto2 test rider Julian Simon who happens to be a former 125cc World Champion and Moto2 runner-up, Triumph has started their circuit testing phase over at Aragon a couple of weeks ago.
Based on the video, we know for a fact that Triumph is developing both the 765cc Moto2 race engine and a brand new chassis to accommodate all that power. What the British manufacturer is trying to accomplish is developing the engine with good performance as well as durability.
Just to give you guys a heads up, the 765cc engine has been modified extensively from custom cylinder heads, titanium valves, race kit alternator, race slipper clutch, race ECU and many more to further elevate the already versatile power plant.
We’re also hoping highly to see the next generation Triumph Daytona to be released from all this testing and development. For now, we can have a taste of how good the 765cc inline-three engine from Triumph’s latest Street Triple series.
We’ve tested the top-of-the-range Triumph Street Triple RS recently at the Sepang International Circuit. To know more on how the bike performs in track conditions, CLICK HERE.
