The special-edition Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 was unveiled this weekend at the Silverstone GP.
This isn’t just a standard sport bike with a few badges of endorsement plastered on the side. First, there’s the 765 cc three-cylinder engine, based on Triumph’s Moto2 mill. Triumph says it makes 128 hp at 12,250 rpm and 59 lb-ft of torque at 9,750 rpm. It’s got upgraded pistons, cams, a modified intake system (with titanium valves!), higher compression, new con-rods, and other bits and tweaks that raise the redline and allow the bike to make more power.
A quickshifter comes standard, along with five riding modes. Arrow, the usual Triumph collaborator, provided a titanium muffler.
Triumph also added lots of carbon-fibre bodywork, a new twin-spar aluminum frame (using geometry derived from Moto2 machines), Ohlins NIX30 forks and TTX36 shock, and Brembo Stylema brakes.
The Moto2 comes with Pirelli Supercorsa SP tires. Of course, there’s also a TFT dash, which will allow riders to customize their display read-out.
No MSRP has been announced for the new Daytona Moto2, and no specific availability, although we know it will be here next season. Only 765 units are being made for the North American market (less than 100 for Canada!), and only 765 units are being made for the rest of the global market.
