The Triumph Daytona 765 has been unveiled and it will be limited to only 1530 units globally. The sensational in-line three cylinder engine still remains the highlight of this motorcycle.
Triumph has finally taken the wraps of the sensational Daytona 765 at the Silverstone Circuit during the MotoGP British Grand Prix. This motorcycle was long awaited from Triumph, ever since the Street Triple 765 came out, followed by the Moto2 machines that are powered by the Triumph motor.
Finally now, we can set our eyes on the road-legal Triumph Daytona 765 and it will have a limited production run of only 1530 units globally, 765 of which will be headed to USA. The Triumph Daytona 765 hasn’t changed much visually but it still looks as sexy and scintillating as ever.
The bigger highlight of this motorcycle has to be the 765 cc in-line three-cylinder engine which puts out 127 bhp at 12,250 rpm, and 80 Nm of torque. It also gets carbon fiber bodywork with Ohlins suspension which includes NIX30 forks at the front and TTX36 monoshock at the rear. Braking duties are taken care by Brembo Stylema brakes and there’s an Arrow exhaust as well.
The TFT display gets carried over from the Street Triple with access to different throttle maps. However, Triumph is yet to confirm the kerb weight of this motorcycle. As for the motor itself, it has been derived from Moto2 with a range of enhancements over the one on the Street Triple RS including new pistons, camshafts, intake trumpets, con-rods, and modified ports that also increase the bike’s revs by an additional 600 rpm, thus taking it up to a total of 13,250 rpm.
The engine gets new titanium valves on the intake, DLC-coated piston pins, while the compression ratio is set at 12.9:1. The Triumph Daytona 765 is underpinned by a twin-spar aluminium frame that is lighter than the one on the Daytona 675, and has been developed for the Moto2 prototype race bike. This new motorcycle will arrive in the global markets by early 2020. Triumph hasn’t said anything about the pricing of this middle-weight sportsbike nor do we have any details of how many units would be allotted for India yet.
