Husqvarna will join the Moto2 World Championship for 2023 with the line-up of Darryn Binder and Lukas Tulovic as the factory’s intermediate class and Moto3 efforts will be run under the umbrella of the Liqui Moly Intact GP team.

The team will be formally known as Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP and the factory will continue its presence in the lightweight class, previously run under the Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max banner.

The announcement officially confirms the highly expected move from Binder to the intermediate class after the South African jumped straight to MotoGP from Moto3 for this season. 22-year-old Tulovic will return to the GP paddock after a successful 2022 campaign in the European Moto2 Championship where he secured the title with a round to spare.

Ayumu Sasaki will remain with Husqvarna in Moto3, claiming two victories and six podiums in this year’s season so far. The promising Japanese talent will be joined by Colin Veijer, 17, who has won three races to date in the 2022 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.

Notably current Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max Moto3 team manager Peter Ottl will maintain in the role with the Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP Moto3 outfit next year, as just two races remain in the current season.
