Triumph engine for moto2


The new Moto2™ engine is a race-developed 765cc Triple engine based on the powerplant from the class-leading Street Triple RS, with improvements that allow the engine to breathe more freely and rev harder than the production bike, and a peak power figure of more than 140PS.


Developed from Triumph’s class-leading 765cc Street Triple RS powerplant, there are a number of race modifications that have been made to the Moto2™ engine to directly enhance performance, including:




  • Modified cylinder head with revised inlet and exhaust ports for optimised fuel flow
  • Higher compression ratio
  • Titanium valves and stiffer valve springs for increased rpms
  • Low output race alternator kit for reduced inertia
  • Revised 1st and 2nd gear ratios 
  • Race developed slipper clutch (which is tuneable)
  • Specific race ECU, developed with Magneti Marelli
  • Revised engine covers for reduced width
  • Different sump for improved header run
  • High performance coatings to key internal components


  • Increased bore and stroke
  • New crank
  • New pistons
  • New connecting rods and balancer shaft
  • Nikasil plated aluminium barrels
  • Revised gearbox

Using the 765cc triple powerplant from which the Moto2™ engine is derived, the category benchmark-setting top spec Street Triple delivers even more triple engine power and torque, more aggressive styling, poise and attitude, and even better technology. It’s the ‘Ultimate Performance Street’.
