Moto2: Triumph confirmed as engine supplier

Triumph is the new engine supplier for the Moto2 race series from the 2019 season onwards, replacing Honda. This confirms rumours that have been running in the paddock for a while now. The new engine will be a Street Triple 765 engine modified for race use. 

The engine will be based on the Street Triple RS, but will have a modified cylinder head with bigger valves and ports for better airflow, titanium valves with stiffer springs for a higher rev limit (one that hasn't been disclosed), a low output race alternator that has reduced inertia, a taller first gear, a tunable slipper clutch, a race ECU developed with Magneti Marelli, slimmer engine covers that should allow for narrower fairings and better cornering clearance, and a sump that is more symmetrical that allows for exhaust headers to run back from either side of the engine. 

Triumph has said it will not enter the class as a chassis supplier, as it will go against the spirit of the class. The new move has fueled renewed speculation about a Daytona 765, but nobody at Triumph is commenting on product plans at the moment.
