The Moto2 class replaced the 250cc class for 2010. The original intention was for Moto2 bikes to run alongside the existing 250cc machinery, however the entry list consisted of Moto2 machines only. The new class aimed to be economical, with measures such as limiting electronics (which will be supplied only by FIM sanctioned producers), the ban of carbon-fibre brakes and the use of steel brakes only; however, there are no chassis limitations. All Moto2 bikes use a mandatory 600 cc Honda engine, which are prepared by Honda's European specialized tuner Ten Kate, and produces power of about 150 bhp. Control tyres for the new series were provided by Dunlop only, despite early intentions of leaving tyre specifications free. Starting in 2019 Triumph will be the sole supplier of Moto2 engines, ending 9 years partnership with Honda which was began in 2010 by replacing 2-Stroke 250CC Class after 2009 Season. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Grand_Prix_motorcycle_racing_season#Moto2_introduction #2 #honda #moto #moto2
