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 thought of a Triumph hooner licking the ankles of Ducati and KTM offers me nice pleasure, there’s no probability of that taking place anytime quickly.
In the present day’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…when it comes to funds, that could be a entire totally different ball sport,” imparts Sargent.
“And it’s not likely simply concerning the funds to really go racing; it’s concerning 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 the moment, Triumph celebrates its place as the only real 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 received sufficient on its plate.
