A problem a few people seem to be having with the Moto 2 bike is that now and again as you horse into a corner on the brakes the Moto2 bike will just flip into the air with an instant engine stop.
On recovering the bike the engine won't start and you need to go back to the garage to relaunch.
Sometimes it's very frequent (1 in 5 laps) other times it's not as frequent (1 in 30) but it happens a fair bit

I've attached a reply of it happening and what looks to be the issue is the front tyre on the brakes is burying itself below the track for a split second which of course catches and you're gone.
See the images frame by frame (with two angles of the actual issue on frame 3), anything other info that helps let me know

Cheers,
Dave

The problem is that the engine breakes. When the engine breakes, there is a bug in the physics which causes the bike to fly up in the air and do crazy stuff.

The engine breaking can be due to having assists on (not the rider lean assists, but like shift help, traction help, brake help). Try turning those assists off.

Only help I have (bar auto clutch) was shift help so I've knocked that off, I'll let you know how it goes

Did about 10 laps there with no issues but too early to tell.
As an aside I would have normally been shifting fairly heavily down when it happened so could be onto something

I have all the assists off and it has still happened to me, but only once so far and only with the Moto2 bike (KTM). I use the clutch and gas to blip the throttle while shifting and braking for the corners, and I think on that occasion let go of the clutch but didn't have high enough revs to match.
