ENGINE DEVELOPMENT UPDATE
A major step in Triumph’s Moto2TM 2019 season race engine development programme came last week with the second track test at the Ciudad del Motor de Aragón. Following on from the extensive factory test programme, Julian Simon, 2009 125cc World Champion, Moto2TM runner-up and experienced Moto2TM test rider, put the Triumph engine development prototype through its paces.
Coming mid-way through the engine development programme, this successful track shake down test 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 Moto2TM race engines.
