Carbon swingarms are allowed in Moto2, while in Moto3 they are not.
Moto2 bikes are full of carbon parts just like their MotoGP counterparts.
However, unlike the premier class, there is no minimum weight limit for the bike alone, but only for the bike and rider combination: we're talking 217kg in total.
Historically, Moto2 has been a category that has provided very little electronic aid to the rider. In 2019, however, with the Triumph engine, a new electronic package was introduced that included different power response settings, engine brake maps and launch control.
Riders have different settings for power and engine brake, plus the added benefit of the presence of the aforementioned assisted start system. These settings allow Moto2 riders to develop their knowledge and riding skills with electronic aids that need to be fine-tuned.
The Magneti Marelli system comes as a package consisting of a single ECU with datalogger, IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), dashboard, switch and software to operate the entire system. It is unique and common to the Moto2 category, which means all teams must use it.
