Grand Prix Commission approves MotoGP™ Technical Regulation changes for 2020 and 2021

Thursday, 16 April 2020

During the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, MotoGP™ continues to work hard on measures designed to ease the impact of this global pandemic on our sport.

A very positive and fruitful electronic meeting between MotoGP™ manufacturers and representatives of the organisation was recently held in order to share views and discuss a range of topics, from calendar revisions to proposed changes to the technical regulations for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

After approval by all teams across the three classes, the majority of the manufacturers and no votes against, the following proposals for changes to the technical regulations were then made to the Grand Prix Commission and subsequently accepted.

These changes are designed to reduce the costs incurred by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis whilst maintaining fairness and equality in order to conserve the entertainment value of the sport and the integrity of the competition.

– Specification freeze for the engine and aero-body for the MotoGP™ class till the first event of the 2021 season. Thereafter, current upgrade regulations will apply for the rest of the 2021 season.

– Specification freeze of the whole motorcycle in the Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes during 2020 and 2021.

The FIM, IRTA and Dorna want to thank all the manufacturers for their continuous support to the Championship.

Please find below the Grand Prix Commission decisions regarding these changes in full, as well as details on the banning of ride height devices in both Moto2™ and Moto3™.
