Pablo de Chaves, who you may remember for the BMW based D1200R, has come up with a new design for the Moto2 class racing series. Originally working on the design for Bottpower’s Moto2, things didn’t work out, so Pablo thought he would show us his design, the 599BL (Blue Label) and requested a little feedback.
In Moto2, everyone will be running 600cc 4 stroke engines with limitations to keep competition close so the innovation will be in the design of the chassis, suspension and bodywork. Pablo outlines many of the considerations in fairing design, enclosing everything with utmost efficiency, maximizing aerodynamics, lean angle and even room for sponsor decals. He also incorporated adjustable cooling in the fairing sides, allowing less cooling on cold days while decreasing aerodynamic drag.
This new Moto2 series should attract a lot of designers trying to use their skills to create a little edge that could mean the winning difference. The 599BL is one designer’s idea, I think it looks pretty good.
