That's only a rendering of the bike, Triumph is doing a reveal on Aug 23rd. From the website: "its going to be the closest you can get to a genuine Moto2 factory ride for the road." (So it'll be a street bike.)

When I went to the dealership (read: jumped on my street triple and raced from work) They didn't have any info on the bike and only gave me a ballpark of the price based on the other Triumph Factory Customs

Arawn This is the track-only bike, right? (I can't see them going through the homologation process just for 765 bikes, Euro V for a 2020 release) On the website I can see throttle cables, that would suggest no auto blipper.

Phantom49 How the Moto2 class goes, this new Daytona will go. If it starts costing Triumph more $$$ than they expected, it will affect the development of the street bike. If there's no buzz about how the new engine will help the Moto2 riders make the jump to the top class, they won't be able to pull riders off the Japanese supersports or convince a liter bike rider to come down for the handling benefits of less weight. Triumph has to make a statement with this engine or they will basically be fighting for the dollars of their old customers who already love the 675. I love my 2010.

jb.junior I've been waiting for this -- my orthopedists have not....

If I get back in to racing, it will be in another class -- be it the 250/300cc or the 750/765cc class. I'm burned out on supersport. The 1000 class is temping, if not just for the peak technology that comes with it, but that's just too much power for me. If this 765 can bring a decent technology package, this could be the way to go.

Hopefully they will bring some better / more racing appropriate geometry and components. Don't get me wrong -- I love these things and won an amateur title on one, but it's a pain in the ass (and expensive) to have to do all that sh*t again to make it get to where a Yamaha / GSRX / Aprillia come nearly out of the box (rear linkage; triple; oil pump).

It would beat most bikes away from the lights. Except on the one occasion I got beat by a 1050 street triple.
He doesnt mean it cant compete in performance. Were talking a race bike which means it cant compete in the class as in the displacement is too high to meet the rules.

Power is probably somewhere around fifth; it's almost irrelevant when everyone is on the same thing. The only good reason to bump power as high as reasonably possible is to prepare the riders for 240 hp GP bikes.

Could not have put it better, Honda in the years that they supplied Moto2 had at the most 1 or 2 blow ups. Triumph would like to have none, i am pretty sure of that.

The 765 will be lighter or comparable to the 675, you can put money on that. While it may be a mogul displacement category, statistically it makes a GSXR750 look like Rosie O'donnell. It will probably shred 600s dawn to dusk, the 675R itself is already no joke compared to an R6. I must be misunderstanding your original post.

Lol. As others have pointed out, it wouldnt even have a class in which to race in the foreseeable future. Better off buying a Moto2 chassis from Kalex and slotting in a 675 motor. If this is true, Triumph will have missed the barn door of a mark. This would be the best streetbike ever made.
