To mark Triumph’s return to top tier roadracing, the limited edition Daytona Moto2 765 is the closest thing you can get to a factory ride… and it is street legal! The exclusive engine supplier to the Moto2 World Championship, Triumph’s new Daytona is a celebration of their partnership with the MotoGP series.
This is not just some race replica paint scheme applied to a stock street bike, according to the Brit bike builder. “The engine is derived directly from the Moto2 spec powerplant, cranking out 128 HP peak power at 12,250 rpm and delivering 59 LB-FT peak torque at 9,750 rpm — Triumph’s highest ever power and torque from a production 765.” But wait, there’s more racing sourced goodies!
Engine upgrades include titanium inlet valves, stronger pistons, MotoGP-sourced DLC coated gudgeon pins, new cam profiles, new intake trumpets, modified con rods, intake port, crank and barrels. The increased compression ratio and red line raised to 13,250 rpm results in the engine revving 600rpm higher than the Street Triple RS… And the Arrow titanium race can sounds the part, too.
The same chassis as utilized by the Moto2 engine development prototype and the BSB Championship-winning, multi-time Isle of Man TT Supersport race-winning Daytona R goes into the mix. Triumph says this results in unbeatable agility and precision, which, on top of the highest ever specification, makes this new model the most dynamic and precise handling Daytona ever produced.
Full carbon bodywork, 5-spoke cast aluminum wheels, Öhlins 43mm NIX30 front forks and a TTX36 rear shock, race-spec Brembo brakes and Pirelli’s latest-generation, highest-performance road tires, the Diablo Supercorsa SP round out the trick bits of kit the Moto2 765 is equipped with.
Also for the first time ever on a Daytona, riders can take advantage of five new riding modes enabled via ride-by-wire – Rain, Road, Rider Configurable, Sport and Track – all of which adjust the throttle map, Traction Control and ABS settings to suit the riding style and road conditions. There is even a quickshifter for clutchless gear changes.
With a limited run of only 765 motorcycles for North America (and another 765 for the rest of the world), the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition is a rare, special and truly unique machine. Each bike features a billet-machined Moto2-branded aluminum top yoke displaying its laser-etched unique limited edition number.
