After months of salivating over the Moto2-spec Daytona 765, Triumph has finally confirmed that the road-going version of the Daytona 765 will go into production in 2020! The British manufacturer will also introduce a special edition model of the bike, of which only 765 units will be made available worldwide. This exclusive bike features a unique livery and individual unit’s numbers laser etched on top of the triple clamp. It will be unveiled with its exact specifications on August 23. In fact, the production-ready model of the bike has been spotted testing once again overseas.
The spy images paint a better picture of the upcoming supersport. Not much has changed in terms of design when compared to the previous-gen model. However, the bike's biggest talking point is its engine. It’s 765cc, inline 3-cylinder motor should put out power figures hovering around the 130-135PS mark. It’s claimed to be lighter than the previous-gen model, pack the same TFT colour dash as the Street Triple RS and feature a low-slung titanium exhaust from Arrow. The 2020 Triumph Daytona 765 also gets improved electronic rider aids along with a bi-directional quick-shifter.
But that’s not all, a second test bike from Triumph has also been spotted testing alongside the mid-displacement supersport. The bike in question is the neo-retro styled 2019 Triumph Thruxton R Black which gets cosmetic updates like a blacked-out engine and spoked wheels. The gold paint forks give way to blacked out ones featuring gold stanchions. Aside from this, it looks like the bike remains unchanged.
Triumph’s also working on a sportier version of the Bonneville Bobber which gets updated mechanicals and lower-set clip-on handlebars, amongst other changes. Head here for an in-depth view of all the updates.
