from the official regulations (art. 1.10.1):

"For the Moto2 contracted riders and MotoGP class, the limit for the maximum age finishes at the end of the year in which the rider reaches the age of 50.
For the Moto2 class, the age limit for wild card riders is 28 years at the 1st of January of the corresponding Championship year.

For the Moto3 class, the maximum age is 28 years (25 years for new contracted riders participating in the Moto3 Grand Prix for the first time and for wild cards) at the 1st of January of the corresponding Championship year."

You're right rey. The same age limit as Moto3 was proposed for Moto2, but in the end it wasn't ratified.

Actually I don't think an upper age limit in either class is fair. If somebody wants to ride Moto3 until they retire what's the problem? Angel Nieto was never cut out to ride big bikes, but he made the tiddler classes exciting until he was about 40. The current rules push people up to Moto2 whether they want to ride there or not.

28 is a stupid age limit anyway. If they want to make Moto3 a class for kids then 28 is far too old, it should be something like 21.
