British producer Triumph will replace Honda as Moto2’s special engine supplier from 2019 on a three-year deal, series organizers revealed on Saturday.

Moto2 is the feeder series to the leading MotoGP classification.

Commercial rights holder Dorna stated that Triumph would provide a race-tuned 765cc engine based upon the powerplant from the Triumph Street Triple bike.

Honda have powered the classification because it started in 2010 as a replacement for the old 250cc two-stroke class.

“This is a significant moment for Triumph that brings an amazing new chapter to our 110-year racing history and builds on our popular TT and Supersport race winning triple engines,” stated Triumph’s chief commercial officer Paul Stroud.
