Triumph Daytona 765

Triumph announces Daytona 765 Moto2 Limited Edition.

The ultimate Triumph Daytona road bike

was announced at the British Grand Prix

at Silverstone last weekend. Sadly, you’ll

need to be quick, because the bike will

only be produced in limited quantities and

will cost R330,000 for those lucky enough

to get their money down before the list is

full. Two batches of 765 machines will be

produced: 765 for North America, and 765

for the rest of the world.

It’s the first ever officially licensed Moto2 motorcycle and uses

the same engine and very similar frame geometry (rake/trail/

wheelbase) as the majority of Moto2 machinery currently on

the grid. In short, the new Daytona Moto2 765 is the closest you

can get to a genuine Moto2 factory ride for the road, and given

the specifications, incredibly cheap.

The engine in the new Daytona 765cc triple is derived from

Triumph becoming the exclusive engine supplier to the Moto2

World Championship in 2019, and offers peak power of 128.2 hp

at 12,250 rpm, and peak torque of 80 Nm at 9,750 rpm.

The first ever official road bike partnership with Dorna

Moto2, the new Daytona 765 has been built to incorporate

the same engine updates and performance enhancements

that have been adopted by our 2019 Moto2 race engines,

to deliver a ride that’s as close as possible to a Moto2 bike

for the road as well as for track days.
