ABM reveal bespoke Triumph 765 powered GP2 racebike

During the British Superbike round at Oulton Park, a Triumph 765 powered, carbon-laden GP2 motorcycle was revealed by ABM.   

The British designed 765cc ABM GP2 motorcycle is the first of its kind outside of the Moto2 paddock, and it features a whole host of high-end carbon fibre products, including front forks and a rear sprocket. 

ABM has enjoyed many successes this year, with Mason Law scoring two victories and eight podiums in the British GP2 championship. The new 765 powered three-cylinder machine hopes to build on these successes in the future. In order to help make that happen, the bike has and bespoke trellis chassis, full carbon/ceramic front forks and a carbon and Teflon rear sprocket - developed by Mason and the ABM Quattro Racing team in conjunction with their composites partner CeraCarbon.

However, with current class classifications, the new motorcycle will not be legal to race, but GP2 Championship organisers are evolving their regulations to potentially accommodate the new machine - this will include the fitment of a mandated ECU and airbox restrictors. 

Fortunately, you’ll still be able to hear the ABM 765 howl at the remaining GP2/British Superstock rounds, as it’ll be allowed to participate in free practice for open evaluation. 

Here’s what ABM owner Tony Scott had to say:

“This is a unique machine and follows our long-standing desire for a prototype GP2 class in UK racing - something that we spearheaded back in 2017 with our development bike ridden by Alastair Seeley. We’ve continued that this season with Mason Law and as this class has grown and developed, we’ve developed our plan to sell competitive, cost-effective machines to the privateer GP2 paddock. This project also helps showcase the ABM brand and I’m grateful to the BSB organisers for giving the machine time and consideration and allowing us to pitch it against the existing GP2 machines.”

With the level of bespoke manufacturing going on and all use of such high-grade parts, the prices are not likely to be your average road bike fare, and are only available on request from ABM.

For those looking to bling up their existing machine – either 675 Daytona or their carbon clad Moto2 765 Moto2 Daytona, ABM are selling fairing kits that are a straight swap for the factory ones. A fibreglass full set covering top and bottom fairings, screen, air intake, seat unit and clock mounting kits comes in at £850 inc vat. A full carbon fibre set of the same would cost £2500.
