These are the MotoGP changes for 2027

MotoGP is going to change the basic pillars on which it is based for the fourth time since its birth, and it will do so within two seasons. Although we already knew that this was going to happen, now the changes to MotoGP for 2027 have been made public and will seek, according to the FIM and Dorna itself, more safety, more sustainability and more spectacularity if possible.

These changes mainly focus on six basic concepts which are the engine, aerodynamics, altitude variation devices, concessions, shared data and fuel. All these changes will give rise to a new stage that, without a doubt, MotoGP needs and that is that every year the motorcycles are faster and faster and, therefore, the safety that the circuits can offer is less despite the advances.

In fact, the evolution of aerodynamics together with the height management devices are responsible, in addition to the performance of the tires, for the increasingly faster lap times and for the passages through curves that do not stop growing. These are the MotoGP changes for 2027 point by point.

MotoGP changes for 2027


The displacement is reduced again as expected, and will do so to 850 cc compared to the current 1,000 cc. This is expected to reduce performance and especially maximum speeds. In addition, another change comes with the interior of the cylinders and is that it will be limited to 75 millimeters compared to the current 81. This change should affect engine torque and, therefore, accelerations. In addition, only 6 engines can be used for the entire season compared to the current 7.


MotoGP is experiencing an unprecedented escalation in aerodynamics and the wings, ailerons, fins and other aerodynamic appendages are playing a very important role, both in lap time and in determining overtaking. The change will make the top of the fairing 50mm narrower, and the front end will be set back 50mm closer to the seatpost. This is intended to reduce the aerodynamic effect.

To this we must add that the appendices after the pilot will become homologated and, therefore, can only be updated once per season.

Height variation devices

This aspect, another of those that has most influenced the increase in speeds, will be completely prohibited. Thus the exit devices, both front and rear for use when leaving or while driving, will disappear. This point aims not only to increase the spectacle but also safety, especially at the start of the races.

Some of the most important changes come to the engine


The concession system will continue in the same way as it was established at the end of 2023, but in 2027 all manufacturers will have B rank, which will imply certain advantages. Mid-season will be re-evaluated and brands will gain or lose concessions as they go, which will hopefully result in greater equality.

Shared GPS data

Another aspect that seeks equality is that of GPS data, which will be available to all teams at the end of each session. It is expected that teams and drivers with lower performance will be able to take advantage of it and progress at a lower economic cost.


By 2027 all fuel used will be 100% sustainable compared to 40% currently. In addition, the tank limit is reduced to 20 liters from the current 22, something that will once again influence performance and not only emissions. For the Sprint Race the limit will be 11 liters.

Happy drivers
