Triumph’s Moto2 engine has taken a major step forward with a successful shakedown test at Motorland Aragon in the hands of Julian Simon.
Coming mid-way through the engine development programme, track shakedown provided essential data input into the performance and durability evaluation programme. Initial feedback from the test shows that the development programme is progressing positively and that we are well on schedule for the handover in June 2018 of the first batch of Moto2 race engines.
“At this stage of the development programme we are in a good place. We are very pleased with the pace that Julian is showing with the latest engine and his feedback has been very positive. We have confidence that we will deliver an engine that the teams will enjoy racing with and a spectacle and sound that will excite the fans,” said Triumph’s Steve Sargent.
