The covers have finally come off the motorcycle that Triumph fans have been asking for since the debut if the Street Triple 765 - the new Triumph Daytona Moto2™ 765 Limited Edition .
Following overwhelmingly positive customer demand since the de, Triumph Motorcycles has confirmed the introduction of the ultimate edition of the multiple Supersport Championship-winning Daytona, which will be officially revealed at a special press event at the GoPro British Grand Prix at Silverstone on Friday 23rd August 2019.
The new Daytona features the highest ever power and torque for the model thanks to its new Moto2™derived 765cc triple engine and is the first ever official special edition Moto2™ machine to be licenced by the sport’s governing body, Dorna Sports.SL.
The bike will be limited to a short run of individually numbered motorcycles, with only 765 for Europe and Asia, and 765 for the US and Canada. No word yet on whether New Zealand collectors will get a chance at owning the first new Daytona in years.
Styling wise, from what we can tell anyway, the new Daytona follows similar design cues from the last generation of Daytona, and while top-tier Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes are hinted at, beyond the engine that is where the details of the new bike stop.
What we do know for certain is that Triumph will launch two versions of the new Daytona, one for Europe and Asia, and one for the US and Canada. Both versions of the bike will feature a new Moto2™ derived 765cc triple engine inside a championship-winning sports-focused chassis, delivering the highest power and torque ever from a production 765cc, plus the highest specification of equipment ever, and a limited edition race paint scheme.
Reflecting Triumph’s position as the engine supplier to the Moto2™ class of the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship, and sharing some of the key developments from the race engine programme, both models will be revealed at a special press event on Friday 23rd August at Silverstone, where full specifications and details will be revealed. Both bikes will also be showcased in a spectacular parade lap over the race weekend, ridden by two former motorcycle world champions.
This new limited edition Daytona delivers the closest you can get to a genuine Moto2™ factory ride for the road.
With a limited run of only 1530 being built worldwide, with each bike individually numbered, Triumph are anticipating strong demand for the new Daytona.
We’ll update you as soon as details are confirmed to any New Zealand availability.
