Our favourite Brit-based model has been approached with queries of whether or not or not they’re contemplating entry into the premier class of MotoGP – and, a lot as the concept of a Triumph hooner licking the ankles of Ducati and KTM provides me nice pleasure, there’s no probability of that occuring anytime quickly.
At present’s what-ifs are sourced from Bike Sports activities, the place Steve Sargent, chief product officer at Triumph, has responded somewhat adeptly to a possible group within the premier class:
“I imply…by way of finances, that may be a entire completely different ball sport,” imparts Sargent.
“And it’s not likely simply in regards to the finances to truly go racing; it’s in regards to the quantity of R&D spend and the R&D effort that has to go in behind that.”
“So our focus in the mean time is on Moto2, Supersport, and going into Motocross and Enduro.”
At present, Triumph celebrates its place as the only engine provider for Moto2; this, mixed with current information of entry into Supercross for 2024 and a toe or three into the Supersport World Championship, and Triumph’s bought sufficient on its plate.
