I've been following the FB Triumph groups and apparently, 150x D765 LEs sold within the first 3 minutes upon accepting pre-orders @10am in the UK the other day. Within the next couple hrs completely sold out! They received more pre-orders than they can guarantee allocation so there are posts like the one below all over the net:


"Allocation now SOLD OUT!


If you were one of the people to put down a deposit we will be in touch over the next week to confirm allocation"


This is totally insane!

Hope you're one of the lucky ones and the disti can allocate your bike JD.

Triumph can bite me. Their marketing strategy of making small quantities of overpriced special edition bikes is just pissing people off. First the Thruxton R TFC, now the 765 Daytona.

I was a fan before but I'm not even going to bother looking at their future shit if they are going to be pulling these stunts.

Well apparently there is a market for the factory custom LE thing. And as long as Triumph releases an affordable standard version that I can customize myself I honestly don't care.

The thing that surprises me the most is that people are willing to put down money for an unavailable bike, without even knowing its final design, color etc. D765 LE hasn't even launched by Triumph yet. And the bike is not going to be available until next year. For someone like me who never buys even a first gen bike, this is really surprising.



Anyways looks like there's demand for a Daytona 765 (even for the the expensive LE edition) so Triumph doesn't have an excuse to release the standard versions anymore.

IMO, I think after this small run, they will make a "regular" 765r. John Bloor might not like racing, but he loves his money. After seeing they were sold out in a couple hours, he will make more, or sell others.

I hope that's the case. A trial to gauge interest on a new bike which has been successful, people have put their money where their mouths were. However it wouldn't be the first time in history that a long awaited vehicle is sold out in the early stages of production just for interest to quickly decline during the regular production run, so they might still be wary of making a regular one.

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politically correct.

That is what i am saying, don't say we are releasing the details of the bike on the 23rd and then don't do or show shit... I would of expected some kick arse brit to have already posted pics of this bike.. unless they are to busy wanking off to those pics they got?
