Triumph tests sustainable fuels to reduce carbon emissions
Author: Rodrigo Fialho
As part of Triumph's commitment to a more sustainable future in motorcycling, a sustainable fuel testing program was created at the brand's Research & Development facility in Hinckley, UK. Working in partnership with Dorna, this project was implemented to ensure a switch to E40 fuel at the Moto2 World Championship by 2024, with a focus on the transition to the E100 by 2027. To date, fuel tests have covered all areas of competition engine performance development, with Triumph the sole supplier of Moto2 engines, to ensure that the new fuel standard is not only competitive, but will continue to offer the exciting, torque-rich and record-breaking three-cylinder performance that riders love. Hand in hand with the evolution of electric powertrain technology, demonstrated by the Triumph TE-1 prototype, and the continuous efforts to reduce carbon emissions and other emissions beyond current legislation, both in Europe and worldwide, this sustainable fuel development program also underlines Triumph's focus on ensuring that motorcycling can continue to be enjoyed responsibly by riders and fans for many years to come.
