Honda is proud to announce its unique involvement in the 2010 Moto2 World Championship. Moto2 has replaced the 250 world championship with prototype chassis and new, world-class, updated engines. In fact, this much awaited debut season will see Honda as the sole engine supplier for the Moto2 class.
A powerplant derived from Honda’s supersport-spec CBR600RR will be used by each Moto2 machine – this is incidentally a machine that has proved itself to be one of the most powerful and popular inline 600s in all of history. In the Grand Prix world championship racing, this is the first time that a single manufacturer would be supplying engines for an entire class. Incidentally, this new category is expected to develop into a stepping stone not just for MotoGP but also for other premier classes.
