Affected like so many others by the decline of the sports market, the Triumph Daytona slowly eclipsed a few years ago. She, the last representative of a line where the 900 Super III or 955i T595 stood out. She, asleep with time under the howls of her 675 cc engine… To return by the front door, haloed with the song of Moto2 and a 3-cylinder 765 cm3. The Daytona had left a great memory in the hearts of athletes and racers. Triumph saw and heard the wishes and breathes new life into its renowned SuperSport.
On the handlebars of the old Daytona 675, it was the scent of arson and trajectories. The Englishwoman did not pretend and put you in direct contact with the sport. A trait that the 765 should find again, with much more force. Powered by the 3 legs of the Street Triple, itself adapted to the demands of Moto2, the Dayto is sure to energize the adrenaline factory. Disappointment all the same with the announced power of this boiler: even doped to conform to the pistarde, it develops 130 horses at 12,250 rpm – the 675 was already coming out of 128. The standards had to tighten badly the potato of the connecting rods. .. Fortunately, we gained torque, with a maximum of 8.2 mkg. It would even be 20% more present in the mid-revs than on the 675. The Italians will not fail to chuckle when they notice that an MV-Agusta F3 800, barely better cubed (33 cm3 more), spits almost 20 additional horses … For those who want to drive the point home, the XX version sent big with 160 nags.
If this block comes from the Street RS, it has planned to stand out with some welcome improvements for a sports car: titanium intake valves, nastier ACT cams, modified connecting rods, reinforced pistons, DLC coated stud pins, revised admission , increased compression ratio and optimized gear ratios.
Triumph has already announced that its sports car will be exclusive. In use perhaps; in the diffusion certainly. 1,530 copies will be manufactured, history to mark the spirits: 765 copies for the USA and Canada and 765 others for Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. A limited series under the seal of the high-end, whose coat of arms is expressed before the eyes of the pilot. The upper triple tree, machined in the mass, is engraved with the serial number of the motorcycle by a Laser.
The chassis accommodates lightweight wheels as well as Öhlins and Brembo (Stylema) components, anchored to an aluminum perimeter frame. The plastic of the Daytona is identical to that of the 2013-2016 model; where refinement and lightness mingle in a fairing and a series of carbon elements. A modernized facies would have been well received but … Triumph was cautious.
Focused on itself, the Dayto retains a reduced size. Only the exhaust seems cramped – the space under the engine is no longer enough for it and it takes a more classic lateral position. The Arrow signed silencer is just waiting to make the Moto2 melody bark. The weight remains under the control of secrecy. However, according to the information provided, we can expect an orbiting mass of 180 kilos..
However, as time and technology have not remained asleep since his retirement, the Daytona recovers a lot of electronic novelties. ABS, traction control, IMU inertial unit, 5 driving modes (Rain – Road – Rider – Sport – Track) and Up & Down shifter are waiting for you. The dashboard is updated with a color TFT panel, like on the Street R and RS.
Triumph is determined to make this rebirth a small event. Regretted by many people when it was ousted from the catalog, the Daytona returned with panache at the opening of the 2019 Silverstone GP. Those who were lucky enough to be there were able to attend an exhibition of two models on the track, piloted by two former world champions. The price is slick, much more than the Daytona 675 R. Symbolic detail, notice the last 3 digits of the advertised price … 😉
So, will we only see these 765 copies? If it is a premium production like the TFC Thruxton and Rocket III TFC, then we can hope that a more affordable version will follow some time later..
