As such, Moto2 teams have begun testing the engine this year in preparation for the new season.

During testing at Valencia earlier this year, Jesko Raffin posted a time that was 1.3 seconds faster than the lap record set by 2016 Moto2 champion, Johann Zarco – using a standard 765cc triple engine from the Street Triple RS! Raffin commented that he encountered “zero problem” with the powerplant. Another rider had commented about the engine’s abundance of low-down and mid-range torque.
