The Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 officially debuted today, at a special event held at the Silverstone circuit during the British GP.

This means the details and images were finally released on this road-going version of the Moto2 racing platform, of which only 1,530 units will be created (765 will be coming to the USA).

Of course, what we really want to know is the nitty-gritties from the spec sheet. As such, 128hp gets made at 12,250 rpm, while peak torque is set at 59 lbs•ft. Triumph has yet to confirm a dry or wet weight, however.

Carbon fiber bodywork panels are nice addition to the package, which also comes with Öhlins suspension (NIX30 forks & TTX36 shock), Brembo Stylema brakes, and an Arrow exhaust. Note too, the TFT dash and available throttle maps.

The pride of the Daytona Moto2 765 though is its three-cylinder engine, which has a 765cc displacement and a number of Moto2-derived enhancements.

Taking the motor from the Street Triple 765 RS, Triumph has added new pistons, camshafts, intake trumpets, con-rods, and modified ports that increase the street bike’s revs by another 600 rpm (13,250rpm in total).



The engine also boasts titanium valves on the intake side, DLC-coated piston pins, and the compression ratio has been bumped up to 12.9:1.

Holding things together is a new twin-spar aluminum chassis, which is lighter than the previous generation Daytona 675 and uses a geometry developed on Triumph’s Moto2 prototype race bike.

Available in “early 2020”, there still is no word on what the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 will cost. We expect that news, shortly.
