MotoStudent is already an international benchmark in the field of university and mobility on two wheels, since it is backed by a dizzying trajectory that has directly involved more than 5,000 university students and has exceeded 350 teams from universities in 22 countries on 4 continents. 

Registration for the teams interested in participating in the VIII Edition of MotoStudent is open since March 1st and can be done through the website On this website you can also find the new Official Regulations, increasingly aligned with the world's top competition. After the registration period, an 18-month development cycle will begin in which the university teams will design and manufacture racing motorcycle prototypes, integrating innovative technology and applying the knowledge acquired during their years of study. The edition will culminate with the Final Event, scheduled for fall 2025, at the prestigious MotorLand Aragon circuit. This will offer teams the unique opportunity to compete for five days on the same track as the world's best MotoGP riders. 

During this VIII Edition, registered teams will enjoy privileged access to a variety of resources, services and trainings through MotoStudent's internal platform. Participants will not only be provided with essential tools for the development of their projects, but will also have the opportunity to take part in exclusive talent programs and other challenges that will enhance the professional and academic growth of the participants. In addition, this exclusive ecosystem will bring together the leading industry in the sector with the best university talent, and the innovation that will be developed will once again be the standard that defines its members. 

MotoStudent continues to be a pioneering competition by presenting two categories: MotoStudent Petrol, aimed at prototypes with internal combustion engines, and MotoStudent Electric, for all-electric projects. As a novelty, this edition will work on new segments of sustainability oriented towards new technological models, and their consequent reduction of emissions, reflecting the commitment of the competition with the environment and sustainable mobility. 

International Recognition 

A recent milestone is the 'Trophy For The Future 2023' award, given to MotoStudent by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM). This prestigious award was presented at the FIM Awards in Liverpool, a gala that brought together the most prominent exponents of the sport and industry on a global scale, which recognized the excellence, innovation and talent development that drives young people this International Competition. 

Success stories 

MotoStudent is an excellent test bed for the most disruptive technology, and is present in many world-class events driving technological innovation. Proof of this are the various students participating in previous editions, who are currently working in competitions such as MotoGP, Formula 1 or WorldSBK, as well as in leading companies in the sector.  

Another case derived from the technological collaboration with MotoStudent is the Watt Power Racing team, led by a loyal collaborator of the Competition, Elías Bel, who, together with his team, has competed in the last edition of the Dakar Rally, with an electric motorcycle, in the new category of alternative propulsion to oil, Dakar Mission 1000. In his prototype, the technology with which the universities are competing in MotoStudent has been applied, since the same technical regulations and electric safety systems of MotoStudent have been followed.
