Moto3: a Moro powered by Sherco

The 125cc bike builders are approaching the 2011 season with their minds already on 2012. Likewise, the riders are preparing to fight hard for the last two-stroke title, knowing that it will put them in position to find the best seat possible for the new Moto3 category.

Moto2 really shuffled the deck last year, and it gave a lot of riders who weren't expected to be protagonists the chance to shine. So there are many who are hoping the Moto3 class will offer the same opportunities for both riders and bike builders. The machinery will be even more simplified than it is in Moto2, which will likely motivate many small bike builders to enter the fray.

Amongst the first to do so will also be Moro Racing, headed by longtime GP crew chief Franco Moro. Just before Christmas they presented their Moto2 machine, and more recently they have completed their first Moto3 bike.

Franco used an engine from a Sherco 250 enduro, appropriately modified for road racing use. The dimensions of his prototype are similar to those of a 125cc two stroke, with a weight of 77 kg. The bike was designed to accept various options for brakes, wheels and suspension.

Production of more examples has already begun; and the first deliveries are expected within a month.
