Born in Glory

One of the most famous wins in Triumph’s racing history, the 1966 Daytona 200, saw Buddy Elmore spectacularly race from 46th on the grid all the way to first place, taking the checkered flag aboard a prototype Triumph T100 Tiger – a dramatic victory that inspired the first Triumph ‘Daytona’ model designation.

Returning to the Triumph lineup in the early 1990s, the Daytona reinforced its legendary position as the most successful name in Triumph’s celebrated racing heritage with the triple-powered 675 winning at the Isle of Man TT, the British, German, French and World Supersport Championships, and again at the world-famous Daytona 200, claiming a dominant victory in 2014. With Peter Hickman’s stunning Supersport victory at this year’s Isle of Man TT, the Triumph Daytona continues to make its case as the best middleweight sportbike in the world.

A dynamic testament to Triumph’s exciting return to the top tier of racing, the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition represents the highest-ever specification of this British racing legend. The exclusive engine supplier to the Moto2 TM World Championship, Triumph’s new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition is a celebration of the unique partnership with the FIM FIM MotoGP World Championship.

Your Moto2 factory ride


Designed by the same expert team that developed the record-smashing Moto2 engine, the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition features a unique new Moto2-derived triple powerplant delivering Triumph’s highest ever power and torque from a production 765. With peak power of 128 HP at 12,250 rpm and peak torque of 59 LB-FT at 9,750 rpm, the new engine delivers race-bred power and performance for the road – the exciting upgrades can be felt low down and across the entire rev range by way of a uniquely tuned advanced ECU from the Street Triple RS.

The engine features a number of components and performance upgrades derived directly from the Moto2 engine development program, including titanium inlet valves, stronger pistons, MotoGP-spec DLC coated gudgeon pins, new cam profiles, new intake trumpets, modified con rods, intake port, crank and barrels, and an increased compression ratio. With a red line raised to 13,250 rpm, the engine revs 600 rpm higher than the brilliant Street Triple RS.

The Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition also features a new exhaust system with a beautifully TIG-welded high-performance Moto2 inspired Arrow titanium race can, delivering that unbelievable Moto2 sound! Developed bespoke for the new Daytona, the new side-mounted, upswept Arrow silencer has been optimized for performance, reliability, efficiency and lightness.

Boasting an all-new gearbox with track optimized gear ratios and a first gear ratio directly informed by the Moto2 engine development program, the new Daytona truly is the closest you can get to a genuine Moto2 factory ride for the road.

The highest-ever specification Daytona

The highest ever specification of Triumph’s championship-winning racer, the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will feature superbike-spec lightweight Brembo Stylema brakes. Compact and carefully sculpted, these are Brembo’s top-performance brakes, chosen for their immediate response, durability on track and quick cooling characteristics. Other premium components from Brembo include the span- and ratio-adjustable brake lever and MCS radial master cylinder.

The new Daytona also features Pirelli’s latest-generation, highest-performance road tires, the Diablo Supercorsa SP, the optimum application for unmatched road and track precision. There’s also the high-specification race-proven Öhlins front and rear suspension – a 43mm NIX30 front fork and TTX36 rear shock – both fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound.

On top of the highest ever specification and larger capacity engine, the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition is now even lighter than the previous Daytona. A lighter-weight main frame, swing arm, and full carbon fiber bodywork helps the new Daytona perform with maximum agility for a dynamic race-inspired ride. The new Daytona also features the lightest wheels in class – sporty five-spoke 17-inch cast aluminum alloys for lightning-quick direction changes and exceptional handling – coated in race-developed anti-slip high-gloss black paint.

Precision-perfect chassis

The eagerly anticipated new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition shares the same precision-perfect chassis as the Moto2 engine development prototype and the BSB Championship-winning, multi-time Isle of Man TT Supersport race-winning Daytona R. This is due to its 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.

Designed for exceptional road and track capability, the new Daytona has a pure single seat set-up, reducing weight and reinforcing its sporting intent. There is also a new, smoother, track-optimized seat material that enables easier rider movement across the seat.   A race-inspired rear pad integrates into the rear bodywork.

The most technologically advanced Daytona ever

A significantly higher level of modern technology is now featured as standard on the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition, including category-leading full-color TFT instruments with a unique new Moto2 Triumph co-branded start-up graphic and lap timer. For simple, intuitive access to the instruments while riding, the new Daytona features the latest multi-function ergonomically optimized switch cubes with five-way joystick control.

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.

Track ready and performance focused, the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition also features standard Triumph Shift Assist – the up and down quickshifter for clutchless gear changes – perfect for focused riding and track enthusiasts.

Simply put, it is the most technology offered on a Daytona, ever.

Race-focused poise and style

In true racing style, the Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition features new, lightweight, full-carbon fiber bodywork consisting of a new, single-piece cockpit, full fairing, re-styled rear unit, front mudguard, hugger, upper chain guard and race-spec lower chain guard.

Inspired by the Union Jack livery of the Moto2 engine development bike, the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition features official Moto2 branding and a unique paint scheme in Carbon Black, Graphite Grey and Aluminum Silver, punctuated with an exposed carbon fiber effect.

Completing its performance-focused poise and style, the main frame and swing arm have a distinctive clear anodized finish, significantly reducing weight versus traditional powder coating. This, along with the elegant twin headlight, rear paddock stand bobbins and LED indicators, make the stylish new Daytona Moto2 765 ready for any road or track.

Rare, special and unique

With a limited run of only 765 motorcycles for the United States and Canada and 765 for Europe, Asia and the rest of the world, the new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition is a rare, special and truly unique machine. Each bike features a beautiful billet-machined Moto2-branded aluminum top yoke displaying its laser-etched unique limited edition number.

Race-inspired accessories

With over 35 Genuine Triumph Accessories available for this new model, customers can tailor their Daytona to meet their own personal preferences through a range of styling, protection and security features. New accessories include scrolling LED indicators with gloss black cast aluminum bodies, plus a beautiful machined aluminum rear brake reservoir with a laser-etched Triumph branded lid. Additionally, riders can add engine and fork protectors and a tail tidy.
