2010 Moto2

Will all be powered by Honda. Big Red What a wasted opportunity. Not to mention a bunch of people feel the rug has been pulled out from under.

http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2009/2...wered+by+Honda

The initial engine supplier for the Moto2 class, the 600cc prototype World Championship series which will run for the first time in 2010, has been confirmed as Japanese manufacturer Honda. After receiving offers from various potential suppliers, the Permanent Bureau of FIM President Mr Vito Ippolito and Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta made the unanimous decision to give the tender to the company.

The first Moto2 engine will run at over 150hp, housed inside chassis of the teamsí choosing. The prototype bikes will make their entrance to the World Championship against the current crop of 250cc machinery, which will run alongside the class in an arrangement similar to that made for the 500cc/MotoGP switch in 2002.

I think the teams are required to BUY the engines.
