Francesco Bagnaia secured the Riders' Championship at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The 2018 Moto2 season was a part of the 70th F.I.M. Road Racing World Championship season. Franco Morbidelli was the reigning series champion but he wasn’t defending his title as he joined the series' premier class, MotoGP.

2018 was the final season that the Honda CBR600RR inline-4 engine package—which débuted in the 2010 Moto2 season—was used in competition; as the brand new engine package (765cc inline-3) supplied by Triumph Motorcycles will be introduced for the 2019 season.

After finishing 3rd at Sepang Italian rider Francesco Bagnaia became the 2018 Moto2 World Champion. Miguel Oliveira finished second in the championship and his teammate Brad Binder finished third.

Mid-season changes[edit]

Team changes[edit]

  • NTS made their full season debut in Moto2, having previously competed as a wildcard constructor between the 2014 and 2017 seasons. They will field bikes for RW Racing GP, who switched manufacturer from Kalex to NTS. RW Racing GP also expands its operation to field two bikes for the 2018 season.
  • Forward Racing Team and Dynavolt Intact GP switched manufacturers. Forward returned to Suter, with which they last competed in 2012, while Intact GP returned to Kalex after one season with Suter.
  • Tasca Racing Scuderia Moto2 expanded to two bikes in 2018.
  • Both CGBM Evolution and Kiefer Racing switched manufacturers from Kalex and Suter to KTM.
  • Marinelli Rivacold Snipers expanded to Moto2, fielding a Kalex bike.
  • AGR Team folded its operations in both Moto2 and Moto3 following the 2017 Aragon GP due to financial issues coupled with poor performance throughout the 2017 season.
  • Petronas and the Sepang International Circuit will form a partnership which will enable the SIC Racing Team to return to Moto2, having previously competed in the championship in 2014 as "Caterham Moto Racing Team".[32][33]
  • Kiefer Racing downsized to one bike in 2018 due to financial issues. Sandro Cortese, who was originally contracted to ride the team's second bike, was later released as a result.
