MOTOGP is the abbreviation used for the major racing class in Europe. It is a motorcycle racing classification which tests the motorcyclist’s ability to follow instructions. The highest order of precedence given to a racer at MOTOGP test is the title “Best Racing Road Bike”. Motorcycle racing is the most popular category of motor bike road racing event held on road courses officially sanctioned by the FÉdération Internationale de Motocrossenne. This racing class was first introduced in the UK in 1990 and since then there have been hundreds of thousands of competitors including the winner Peter Hickman who became the first ever MOTOGP world champion.
All the major manufacturers participate in the MOTOGP championship. Some of the most famous names in the motorcycle industry include Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, BMW, Honda Corse, KTM and Seatix. In addition, production bikes from these manufacturers are also entered into the races. All these are participating in order to promote their brands in this racing class. The increased interest in motorcycles and the increasing number of fatal accidents on British roads have led to the introduction of a new regulation to introduce new riders to the road and for new motorcycle manufacturers to enter into this sport.
There is a new rule implemented for the MOTOGP season; all those bikes racing in the championship must be fitted with full working smoke exhausts. These exhausts will ensure that only the cleanest and purest smoke is emitted during the whole race. The new MOT is based on the advanced technology of a Japanese company called Troy Bayliss who have been working on exhaust designs for a number of years. They are experts in creating a complete exhaust system for a modern motorcycle. Their design philosophy is based on high performance clean exhausts while using lightweight but strong components.
The new season of MOTOGP is based on the idea of “clean coal” technology. This means that all the teams must use modern day front cylinder and two-cylinder engines, with no further modifications. As a main article of the MOTOGP rules states:
When you come to choose your bike for the MOT, you have to check if it meets the criteria laid down by the MOTOGP. Some of the criteria required by the MOT include an in-line six-speed gearbox, single-speed automatic transmission, sealed combustion chamber, variable valve air induction system, a variable exhaust gas charge, variable valve timing and balanced exhaust system. The main article of the MOTogy also states that all vehicles must have an adjustable apron, an ABS system and wheel brakes. If your vehicle does not meet all these criteria, then it is not eligible to take part in the MOT.
The last four races of the season are the Motocross Masters, the Motocross Trophy, the Motocross Asia Trophy and the Motocross World Cup Series. The winner of each of these races receives a trophy, which is based on performance points. Usually the winning team receives a whole prize money as well as the title. Each of the five races takes place in different countries, with the dates and venues being decided by the organizing committee. If your vehicle doesn’t meet any of the criteria for one of the above races, it is not eligible to take part in the next. To see whether your vehicle is eligible to take part in a particular race or not contact your team manager or motorbike club, who will be able to give you more detailed information.
