It was always going to happen, and we suggested that it might 12 months ago, but Triumph have officially confirmed that they will indeed bring to market a Moto2 derived 765cc Triumph Daytona Moto2 Limited Edition to market.
Triumph will officially unveil the machine at this year’s British Brand Prix on Friday 23rd August 2019.
There will be a total of 1530 motorcycles in the Limited Edition run with 765 of those earmarked for Europe and Asia, with another 765 reserved for North American customers. There will be some minor differences between the two models but those differences have not yet been released, but presumably the paint scheme will be at least one of them, while others could be due to differing emissions regulations.
Both bikes will also be showcased in a spectacular parade lap over the race weekend, ridden by two former motorcycle world champions.
Triumph promise the most power ever seen from this engine capacity and the highest specification of equipment ever seen.
Reflecting Triumph’s position as the exclusive engine supplier to the Moto2 class of the FIM MotoGP World Championship, and sharing some of the key developments from the race engine programme, the 765cc Triumph Daytona Moto2 Limited Edition will be an officially licenced product in collaboration with Dorna.
