Triumph have today announced the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition motorcycle in partnership with Dorna. At the moment there aren't many details, but deposits are being taken. There will be more information released on 23rd August at MotoGP Silverstone. There will be 765 of these machines made of two versions.
Initial impressions are that Triumph may use the existing Daytona 675 chassis but put in a tuned Street Triple 765 engine inside it. Triumph are billing it as the closest you can get to a Moto2 machine on the road. There will be 765 machines produced for the Europe and Asia market, and another 765 for the USA and Canada.
Triumph have stated that there was overwhelmingly positive customer demand for this machine - but news of a standard road Daytona 765 has not been forthcoming. We think that if the Daytona Moto2 765 has exactly the same chassis as the Daytona 675 then there won't be a Daytona 765. That said, some people have stated that they've been told there will be a standard Daytona 765 whereas others have been told that there won't be.
With the news spreading fast, and at only £15,500 it won't be long before both sets of 765 machines have been reserved - so phone your dealer now and put down a deposit if you want one.
