Moto2™ Records fall with new Triumph 765cc engine

LANDMARK TESTING WEEKEND AT JEREZ

·         Moto2 riders from 2019 teams complete a full weekend of testing at Jerez race track.

·         Two testing laps completed inside previously recorded Jerez circuit Moto2™ fastest lap

·         Team feedback – “We are ready for 2019 season”

On 23rd – 25th November Triumph attended the final testing weekend of 2018 at Jerez race track, with 2019 Moto2™ race teams trialling their new race bikes ahead of next season.

On Saturday 24th, two 2019 Moto2™ championship contenders riding different machines, both featuring the new 2019 Triumph triple 765cc race engine, recorded practice lap times inside the fastest recorded lap of Jerez Circuit of 1 minute 41 seconds (1’41.890). This is a landmark achievement in one of the first times the riders have ridden 2019 season race bikes in their new configurations.

On Sunday, it was predicted that riders would go even faster, but weather conditions prevented this. All teams used the full weekend on track to complete more testing, development and set up ahead of the forthcoming 2019 Moto2™ race season.

Steve Sargent, Triumph Chief Product Officer said; “This weekend feels like the culmination of 2 years of hard work by many people in Triumph. To hear all the bikes out on track at the same time is a dream come true for Triumph. We had direct and overwhelmingly positive feedback from the teams at Jerez as they gear up for the 2019 season. Bring on Qatar!”
