The chassis must be a prototype, the design and construction of which is free within the constraints of the FIM Grand Prix Technical Regulations. The main frame, swingarm, fuel tank, seat and fairing/bodywork from a non-prototype (ie. series production road-homologated) motorcycle may not be used.

All machines must have a correctly-positioned timekeeping transponder, of the correct type for the class entered. The transponder must be supplied or approved by the official Timekeeper and fixed to the motorcycle in the position advised by Timekeeping and approved by the Technical Director.

Correct attachment of the transponder bracket consists of a minimum of tie-wraps, but preferably by screw or rivet. Velcro or adhesive alone will not be accepted, and any transponder retaining clip must also be secured by a tie-wrap.

During all practice sessions, warm up and the race a maximum of 17 slick tires are allowed, specifically:
Front slick tyres: 8, Rear slick tires: 9
Wet tyre quantities are not restricted, however only the current specification of wet tyres from the Official tyre supplier may be used.

In the Moto3 class fuel on the motorcycle must not be below the prevailing ambient temperature, as measured by the Technical Director. Other than a simple removable fuel tank cover, the use of any device on the motorcycle to artificially decrease the fuel temperature below ambient temperature is forbidden.

Riders must wear a helmet which is in good condition, provides a good fit and is properly fastened.

The maximum noise levels at all times is 115 dB/A.
