Bimota keen on Moto2 involvement

Bimota keen on Moto2 involvement

Factory announce willingness to provide chassis for new World Championship class.

The confirmation of the new Moto2 class´ future introduction into the World Championship schedule has sent a number of interested parties to work on their plans for the class, and not just from the factories and teams looking to participate in the new category.

The latest company to express their interest in the four-stroke series is Bimota, focusing their interest specifically on the chassis development side of the 600cc prototypes. Bimota have been busy investigating the possibility of involvement in Moto2, and are ready to produce key components for the inception of the class.

A return to the World Championship would see Bimota come full circle in their focus, as the manufacturer was originally dedicated solely for producing parts for Grand Prix bikes in the early 1970´s. Work in the field of frames, shock absorbers and the aforementioned chassis development programme have been the Bimota trademark in their collaborations with Honda, Suzuki and most famously Yamaha, for whom they provided the chassis for Jon Ekerold´s 350cc World Championship victory in 1980.

Bimota will reveal more details on their intended Moto2 involvement on their website,

250cc, 2009
