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.

For racing purposes a 765 isn't going to be in the same class as the 600s.

Lol. As others have pointed out, it wouldn’t 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.

That is pure rubbish, they did a test with 675r and it beat the new r6. It all depends on what type of rider you are. My 675 had no problems keeping up or beating any 600 even the 750 suzuki. It would beat most bikes away from the lights. Except on the one occasion I got beat by a 1050 street triple.

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.

He doesn’t mean it can’t compete in performance. We’re talking a race bike which means it can’t compete in the class as in the displacement is too high to meet the rules.

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).

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.
