Triumph debuts Moto2 roadbike at home GP
Triumph has chosen this weekend’s Silverstone MotoGP round to finally reveal its all-new limited-edition Moto2-inspired Daytona 765. Far from living on its former glories, the Daytona Moto2 765 draws on Triumph’s deal as the sole engine supplier to the Moto2 series and promises to offer a near-Moto2 experience to its buyers.
The Moto2-tuned version of the 765 engine generates more than 95kW (130hp) of power and 80Nm of torque from the triple-cylinder engine, which is a tuned version of the 83kW 765cc unit which powers the latest Street Triple. Öhlins suspension, Brembo stoppers and lightweight carbon bodywork add to the high-spec, limited-edition machine.
The Daytona Moto2 765 will be made in limited numbers: 765 will be sold in Europe and Asia, with another 765 going to the North American continent. Pricing is yet to be announced, but given the carbon bodywork, tuned engine and high-end componentry, it’s not likely to be cheap. Australia has been allocated 25 of the new machines, all of which sold out within hours of the bike’s announcement.
