It looks like our Bothan spies were right yet again, because Triumph has confirmed our report from earlier this year that the Triumph Daytona 765 Moto2 bike would come to market as a limited edition machine.
Officially called the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition, the bike is exactly as you would expect – a Moto2 race bike with lights and street-legal.
The first ever licensed Moto2 motorcycle blessed by Dorna, only 1,530 units of the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will be made, with 765 going to Europe and Asia, and another 765 going to the United States and Canada. Each one will be individually numbered, of course.
The Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 bike will debut at the MotoGP round at Silverstone, on Friday, August 23, 2019. We expect to get full technical specs as well as pricing at that time, so stay tuned.
The news is surely welcomed from sport bike fans, who have felt a lonely place in their heart since the Daytona was quietly removed from Triumph’s lineup.
It is also good to see that Triumph is learning from the mistakes made by another European brand, and is keeping its race-inspired supersport street-legal for two-wheeled enthusiasts.
