Scott Redding’s team to launch Moto2 600

1 of 1

Scott Redding’s Spanish-based Blusens Aprilia squad will unveil a new Moto2 600cc contender in Spain next week.

The bike, which the British sensation could ride in 2010, will be officially unveiled next Tuesday and is the first European machine to be released for the forthcoming replacement 250cc class.

The only bike previously unveiled for the Moto2 class, which is schedule to get underway for the 2011 world championship campaign, was a bike built by Japanese engineering specialists Moriwaki.

The Blusens squad plans to race the Moto2 prototype in the Spanish championship next season, with many expecting the new 600s to race alongside two-stroke 250 machines in 2010 in MotoGPs.

The Moto2 bikes might be permitted entry into Grand Prix earlier than anticipated because of concerns over a dwindling 250 grid in readiness for the switch to four-stroke 600cc prototypes.
