Starting with the two top-shelf models, the Moto2 edition and RS get the same 765cc in-line three motor, which makes 130PS of power and 80Nm of torque. That’s only 10PS less than the pure race-spec bike!

However, what separates them both are the addition of race-friendly features on the Moto2 bike.

This includes clip-on handlebars, which now sit 80mm lower and 50mm forward. Then there is the premium Ohlins suspension which is also fully adjustable. Anchoring it are Brembo calipers (310mm front, 220mm rear disc).
