The much anticipated Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 has received its exclusive world premiere at the British MotoGP round at Silverstone and is being dubbed as a genuine ‘racer for the road’.
The newest, most powerful iteration of the iconic Daytona yet, the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 has been created to mark the British firm’s involvement in the Moto2 World Championship after it took over from Honda in 2019 as the official control engine supplier with its venerable 765cc.
Powered by a new version of their 765cc triple – designed by the team responsible for the development of the Moto2 engine – the single-seat supersport Daytona produces a claimed 128.2bhp at 12,250rpm, and 80Nm of torque at 9750rpm.
Based on the engine found in the existing Street Triple RS, the motor has been reworked from top to bottom to make it faster revving as well as stronger.
The engine is also higher revving than the Street Triple RS engine by 600 rpm, with a red line now up at 13,250 rpm.
The Moto2 engine development programme means the model comes with the following:
Titanium inlet valves
MotoGP-spec DLC coated gudgeon pins
New cam profiles
New intake trumpets
Increased compression ratio.
The Daytona 765 is available with five riding modes –
– Rain, Road, Rider Configurable, Sport and Track – all of which adjust the throttle map, traction control settings and ABS settings to suit the riding style and road conditions, enabled via ride-by-wire.
