The bloodline of the Triumph Daytona 765 revealed
THE history of the Triumph brand is one that stretches back over 100 years, having first produced bikes in 1902.
And with a history so rich, some of the models in the Triumph range have been around for longer than some motorcycle brands have been in exitance.
Take for example the iconic Triumph Daytona, the best selling modern sports bike to ever roll out the factory gates.
The story of the modern-day Daytona begins with the 900cc Daytona Super III inline three-cylinder model that was produced between 1993 to 1996. It became an instant hit with riders, taking the Daytona 900 and giving it more power, better brakes, and a slightly lighter overall weight.

Fast forward to 2020 and the Daytona has gone through a multitude of changes and upgrades, from 600cc inline-four-cylinder, 675 triple, and the latest 765cc engine that is the control motor for the Moto2 world championship. With each innovation, the model gained it became faster, more technologically advanced and more successful, on both the road racing scene and short circuits across the world.
With victories at the Isle of Man TT, the Ulster GP, and North West 200, the bike became the weapon of choice for the fastest road racers looking for a platform that allowed them to succeed in the world’s most demanding road races.
For now, the latest, limited edition Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 looks like it could be the last we’ll see of the iconic sports bike.
And that is a genuine shame!
