Triumph to supply new engine for Moto2

In 2018.
I had wondered what would happen once the CBR600RR went away.

Good for Triumph. Moto2 is going to sound fantastic!

Its too bad to hear, no championship should be decided by engine failure.


At least we'll get to see lots of crazy blowups!

Now, now IMHO Triumphs engines are no more prone to failures than our BMW engines that have more then their share of issues. Many of us flogged our 675's on the track w/o issue (the '13 won the Daytona 200). Hey, it could be a Duc engine (now let those guys ream me!)

Like I posted on the Ducati Forum, I have owned 5 Daytona 675's, including the "R" we have right now. Over 34,000 miles on the "R", over 29,000 miles on the 2009 I sold to a buddy.. Not a single engine issue among them, except for a camshaft that had to be replaced under recall. All of them have done a ton of track days, including up at Thunderhill in 107 + degree weather.

A 675 won the Daytona 200, also they have won their class at the Isle Of Man... No more prone to issues than my BMW or my Ducati 1299S...

2015 Ducati Panigale 1299S, Termi Carbon front exit slip-on with Cat delete, RapidBike Race module, Sprint WSBK race air filter..

2011 BMW S1000RR, full Ti Akrapovic, OpenFlash tune, Vortex rearsets, Pazzos shorties, Brembo Superbike rotors, Galfer 1375 ceramic race pads.

2011 Triumph Daytona 675R.

My friend has a 675 track bike that has spun bearings 4 times now. Not sure whether thats part failure or tech failure.

I'm not arguing they're better than BMW reliability, i just doubt they'll travel to the moon and back (collectively) 3 times without an engine failure like the Honda engines did.




I'm a Honda guy first, the S1000RR race bike is my spicy mistress.

I put many street and track miles on my '12 Daytona 675R and never had an issue.
I'd still be enjoying it if a damn deer hadn't committed suicide into it.

I, too, wish the deer would give some thought to how their act impacts others prior to committing suicide by car or motorcycle. Selfish Cervidae.
