Triumph Reveals the Limited-Edition Daytona Moto2 765
As Close to a Race Bike for the Road as it Gets
Triumph said it was going to race in Moto2, so it makes sense that the company released a limited-edition Daytona Moto2 765 for the road. The bike is a genuinely special machine. The bikes 765cc three-cylinder engine makes 128 hp and 59 lb-ft of torque.
Triumph said the engine in the bike gets many components and parts that come directly from the Moto2 race bike. That makes sense. It would be silly for Triumph to not keep at least some of the bike’s parts in there. The company went on to list those parts.
They include titanium inlet valves, stronger pistons, MotoGP-spec DLC coated gudgeon pins, new cam profiles, new intake trumpets, modified con rods, intake port, crank and barrels, and an increased compression ratio. The motorcycle also has a 13,250 red line, which means it edgest out the Speed Triple RS by 600 rpm.
Other Than the Engine
Aside from the engine, the bike gets an aluminum frame, Brembo Stylema brakes, Öhlins suspension, and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires. The bike has plenty of modern tech, too. It comes with a full-color TFT screen, five ride modes (Rain, Road, Rider Configurable, Sport and Track), ABS and a quick shifter.
Triumph will build the bike in groups of 765 divided up by market or region. For example, the U.S. and Canada will get 765 of the bikes in total. Pricing for this bike has not been announced.
