Triumph has just unveiled its final 765cc Moto2 engine ready for next season's three-cylinder onslaught. Various journalists and racers were allowed behind the scenes at the factory to witness the Moto2 engine being tested on the Dyno - listen to the video and then imagine 30 of those starting a race!
At a media event at the Triumph Factory in Hinckley, various journalists (MCN and 44 Teeth included) and racers such as Sam Lowes, John McPhee, and Luca Marini were allowed to see the Moto2 engine being tested on the dyno to assess it's final power output. The sound is pretty amazing.
Triumph's Moto2 engine will be taking to a Grand Prix circuit for the first time this weekend (25th/26th August 2018) as double world champion James Toseland rides their test bike with the new powerplant around Silverstone.
It also seems very likely that Triumph will be announcing a Daytona 765 based on the Moto2 engine at some point next year. There have been at least one survey asking people what they would want from a Daytona 765, and there is more than a lot of interest. The chance to own a Moto2 bike on the road will be a massive incentive for bikers to buy a Triumph. We expect an announcement to be made in September 2019 - but it really depends on just how well the Moto2 2019 season goes.
