Binder looking forward to less electronics in Moto2

| | MotoGP

MotoGP exile Darryn Binder will make his Moto2 debut in 2023 after skipping the class on his way to the premier division this year and says he is looking forward to the lack of electronics.

Binder, who enjoyed the dubious honour of being the most crash-happy MotoGP rider this year, joins the works Husqvarna team for his first shot on the middleweights.

“It was a great opportunity to go straight to MotoGP in 2022 but I am very happy to be coming to Moto2 for the very first time. It will be another new adventure for me and I am hoping to make the most of it,” said the South African.

“I am really happy to join this team as there have been talks before and so it’s great to finally come together. I am super-excited to get the 2023 season started and I hope that I can put all the experience I’ve gained in MotoGP this year into Moto2 and make the most of it and hope to secure some good results.

“When I first tested the Moto2 bike, it felt really good. I felt comfortable really quickly and after three days I already started to build up a good feeling. Step-by-step I understood what the Moto2 bikes needs and it’s cool not to worry about too much electronics because you can just go out, ride and work on the setup. focus on your riding and improve with every exit. The testing was really positive which is why I can’t wait to get the season started.”
