    Icon1 Triumph to supply engines for Moto2 from 2018

    Triumph embarks as a sport bike manufacturer to supply engines for Moto2 category from 2018, according to Bike Sports News. Currently Honda supplies a CBR600 engine which produces 128bhp whereas it is expected that the new Triumph engine will be producing around 160bhp. Though Triumph has a middleweight super sport Daytona 675R, the Hinckley firm is interested in upgrading high performance engine from Triumph Street Triple 765cc engine speculated to be launched on 10th January 2017 as an updated version for current Street Triple.

    The Euro4 emissions norms to be followed, since Honda has no plan in updating the 600cc engine as per Euro4 norms and even Kawasakiís 599 ZX-6R and Suzukiís GSX-R600 arenít updated, so these motorbikes canít be sold in Europe. Consequently the sales percentage hasnít gone up for Honda.

    Triumph and Dorna are in the final stages of signing a deal to make Triumph a new official engine supplier for Moto2 from 2018. From this deal, Triumphís identity as a classic and cruiser motorcycle manufacturer will get a new blend in its products segment as a racing sport bike manufacturer. There is as yet no official statement from Triumph Motorcycles or Dorna.

    This is interesting, it seems Triumph is interested in 600cc supersports class and we may see a 1000cc Daytona as well in future
