Here is an article from a german motorcycle magazine ("PS"), concerning the new Moto2 Triumph engine.
https://www.motorradonline.de/test/fahrbericht-triumph-moto2-prototyp-2018.991090.html

Google translation (changed where translation was misleading):

More power, more torque, more sound for more action and excitement in the Moto2 class. This is what officials aim for with the change from Honda four to triumph three-cylinder. In Calafat, the triple prototype gave a first taste of its skills.

From 2019 the Moto2 will drive with three-cylinder engines from Triumph. The 765er Triple from the Street Triple RS serves as a base, in its final stage of development as a Moto2 engine then at least 133 hp strong. PS could drive a prototype exclusively in the Spanish Calafat.

The three-cylinder is in the chassis of a Daytona, with the strut and fork cartridges K-Tech and steering damper and Dunlop's Moto2 slicks on the OZ wheels was prepared for this task.

The three-cylinder starts like the fire department. Get out of the pit lane, and with enthusiastic roar from the Arrows exhaust it puts the load on the back wheel. Compared to its brave series base, the triple is not recognizable.

What the engineers squeezed out from the 123 hp series engine, is staggering. Based on an incredibly strong middle of the triple reaches the corner exit outright magnificent.

The racing engine has a longer first gear, otherwise the gearbox remains unchanged. The gear changes clean and crisp thanks to the quickshifter (without blipper). But the first gear is not really needed here, even the narrow corners of the Spanish course can be taken in the second.

Below 6,000 rpm, the triple is a bit reluctant, from this mark on pressure there is plenty of power. At 8,000 rpm, the front wheel pulls up in second gear. So I shortshift into third gear. That thing really does have pressure in the middle.

The three-cylinder acts precisely, directly and willingly, almost no vibrations. It delivers its performance very evenly, revving powerfully and with a triumphant roar in the air.

The racing engine in its final stage is said to be revving up to around 14,000 rpm - and thus 1,350 / min higher than the production engine. The Moto2 racers will be equipped with Magneti Marelli electronics, which in addition to launch-, traction- and wheelie control also has an electronically adjustable engine brake.

Surprisingly short is the list of changes to the production engine. CNC milled channels, higher compression and titanium valves with harder springs ensure optimum gas flow and efficient combustion even at high speeds. As already mentioned, the first gear is longer, under the narrower covers rotates the slipper clutch and a smaller alternator. Overall, the racing engine is 4.4 kilograms lighter than the production engine. In addition, a modified sump opens up more freedom in the routing of the exhaust manifold.

The development of the engine is already well advanced. There did not occur any real durability problems during the test phase.

Conclusion: the three-cylinder engine really has delivered an absolutely formidable impression in the few test rounds. In combination with a nimble super sports suspension, it is a a real blast. Will there be a similar a 765cc athlete from Triumph for the street? The answer of the officials? A sly grin.

I quite like the idea of a non-Jap for Moto2, let's see how it works out.

But about the potential road version I expect it to be priced batshit high, in respect of the recent Triumph tradition :)

£14,000 for a 2017 657R

"Should" be a similar price to that :P

Who you calling an old fart Matty!? Hehe!  ;D ;D

Engine sound is awesome! On par with the Rotary Norton engine sound...... Not so keen on this actual bike design though(Norton is better looking in comparison), but not too bad I guess by todays standards. :P ;D
