Yuki Takahashi

Japanese rider, Yuki Takahashi began his riding career under the guidance of the HRC Racing Scholarship program. His racing career is spotty at best. He entered the racing world aboard a Honda in 2001 and has remained with them ever since. His 125cc stint consisted of one start and no points. He then spent 6 years in the quarter liters compiling a total of 7 podium finishes, 2 of which were wins in 2006.

An injury in 2007 proved to be a set back for him for the entire season, leaving him with an 11th place finish overall. After bouncing back in 2008 with 3 podiums and a final standing of 5th for the year, Takahashi made the move to MotoGP. 2009 found Yuki still competing for Honda as the sole rider for Scot Racing Team. His 2009 season was short and plagued with crashes. Scot Racing terminated his contract after only seven races, sighting financial constraints, leaving him sidelined for the rest of the season.

For 2010 Takahashi joined Hervé Poncharal’s Tech 3 Moto2 team, alongside Raffaele de Rosa. Yuki showed much promise in 2010 with a first place finish in Catalunya, another 2nd place podium in Brno and several more top tens, earning himself an 8th place overall finish at season's end.

2011 will find Takahashi piloting a Moriwaki for Gresini Racing alongside Michele Pirro.

Moto2 Racing

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.

Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell

  • Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.

  • No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.

  • Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.

Experience the excitement of season 2 of Moto2 Racing as Yuki Takahashi rides to capture his first World Championship title.
