Triumph Motorcycles will launch the all-new Daytona 765 in March 2020. The middleweight supersport will be unveiled to the world at the British round of World MotoGP championship in August 2019.
Triumph won't introduce the all-new Daytona in a regular form. Instead, it will unveil this 765 cc model in limited numbers and christen it as ‘Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition’. The standard model will arrive later in the year. The Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 will be limited to just 765 units worldwide, and a few of these units will be reserved for India.
The all-new Triumph Daytona will draw power from the same engine that propels the Triumph Street Triple range. The 765 cc in-line 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 12-valve (4-valve per cylinder), DOHC engine on the highest-spec Street Triple model, the RS makes 123 PS of power at 11,700 rpm and 77 Nm of maximum torque at 10,800 rpm. The power figures on the all-new Daytona 765 will be even higher, and we can see a peak power output in the range of 130 PS to 140 PS. The middleweight bike will arrive with multiple riding modes - Road, Rain, Sports, Track and Custom.
Top of the shelf hardware will back the performance numbers. Anchoring department will include dual discs at the front and a single disc at the back – both grabbed by Brembo sourced callipers. The shock absorption department will comprise Ohlins sourced inverted forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear – both manually adjustable. The limited-edition bike will also get titanium Arrow exhaust as standard.
The limited-edition model will arrive with a unique, racing-inspired livery that would celebrate Triumph Motorcycle’s entry in the Moto2 class of MotoGP. The company will most likely engrave the production number on the handlebar clamp. The Daytona Moto2 765 will arrive in two variants – one for the European and Asian markets and the other for the US and Canada.
Meanwhile, the regular (non-limited edition) Daytona, like the discontinued model, will come in two variants – Standard and R. The standard motorcycle will pack KYB sourced suspension setup and Nissin callipers. The premium R model, on the other hand, will most likely have a setup similar to the Daytona Moto2 765 and use Ohlins sourced shock absorbers and Brembo callipers.
The electronic package will also receive a revision, and we expect to see more rider-aids on the next-generation model. The package will include ABS, cornering ABS, quickshifter with autoblipper (standard on R model), and switchable traction control.
The new Daytona 765 range will compete against the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, Ducati Panigale 959 and the MV Agusta F3 800 in the Indian market.
