Triumph has revealed the 2020 limited edition motorcycle which will be the Daytona replacement which as been long overdue. The bike will be launched as the Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition, and a teaser image has now been released. The motorcycle will be launched as a 2020 model and will rival the likes of Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R.
Triumph claims that the Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will be closest to what a Moto2 motorcycle would be, and ready to be bought by the masses. We’ve already seen this engine which is a 765cc block on the Street Triple RS. The Triumph Daytona is a much loved and appreciated sportsbike in the middle-weight category, and the bike was discontinued because of the Euro IV emission norms. The British bike manufacturers is bringing back the new Daytona 765 with a Euro VI engine.
The 2020 Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will have the 765cc, 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor which is expected to produced 138 BHP of power in the Moto2 championship but the road-going model could see a drop to 130-135 BHP. However, the 2020 Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will still be the most powerful Triumph Daytona model ever. The bike will get 5-riding modes, bi-directional quickshifter, slipper-assist clutch, Arrow exhaust, new TFT instrument console and also, a welcome screen shouting out ‘Moto2’.
Triumph will be manufacturing only 765 units of the 2020 Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition. Later, a lower spec standard model will be sold worldwide. The limited edition model is expected to get Moto2-livery which we saw on the test bikes. Each model will also have a production number of this limited edition run.
In terms of equipment, expect top components like Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension, 6-axis IMU, traction control, cornering ABS and more…
Triumph will reveal the 2020 Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition at the British GP at Silverstone in August. The standard model of the 2020 Daytona is expected to be showcased at the 2019 EICMA show in Milan. And yes, most definitely, a few units of the 2020 Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition will also be coming to India.
It all boils down to one question then… How Much Would It Cost?
