Triumph, exclusive engine supplier to the FIM Moto2 World Championship, has announced a forthcoming limited-production model, the Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition. It will be officially unveiled at the GoPro British Grand Prix at Silverstone on Friday, August 23, 2019.
The new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will be powered by a Moto2-derived 765cc in-line triple that Triumph says offers the highest levels of power and torque to date from the engine that was originally adapted from the Street Triple RS. In official Moto2 tune, the triple delivers 138 horsepower.
Triumph says the new Daytona is the first-ever official Moto2 Dorna Sports.SL licensed motorcycle, with the highest level of specification and rider technology available on a Triumph, as well as a championship-winning sports-focused chassis. Its bodywork will feature a limited-edition race paint scheme.
The new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition, which Triumph says is the “closest you can get to a genuine Moto2 factory ride for the road,” will be built as part of a limited run of individually numbered motorcycles, with only 765 for Europe and Asia, and 765 for the United States and Canada.
As part of its official unveiling, the Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will be showcased in a parade lap during the British GP weekend, ridden by two former motorcycle world champions.
The Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will be available in March 2020. Images and details will be released on August 23rd.
