Triumph is leveraging its involvement in the Moto2 Grand Prix class by creating a new streetbike that will be revealed August 23 during the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. It's scheduled to hit dealers in March 2020.

Triumph Motorcycles says the Daytona Moto2 765 is the ultimate edition of the legendary, multiple Supersport Championship-winning Triumph Daytona. Just 765 units will be offered in the US/Canada market, with another 765 Daytonas to be shared between the European and Asian markets, each one individually numbered. It’s the first-ever official Moto2 Dorna Sports.SL-licenced motorcycle.

The new Daytona Moto2 765 Limited Edition is supposedly the result of "overwhelming customer demand," a sportbike we saw coming after spy photos were released early this year.

As the exclusive engine supplier to the Moto2 class of the FIM MotoGP World Championship, Triumph purportedly shares some of the key developments from the race engine program with the new Daytona 765.

The production bike unsurprisingly boasts the highest-ever power and torque from its Street Triple 765 three-cylinder engine that debuted in 2017, the same year the Daytona (then 675cc) was axed from Triumph’s lineup. We presume the new Daytona will feature a new cylinder head and camshafts to boost power from the Street Triple 765 RS’s 121-hp claim.

The Moto2 engine currently produces around 138 hp, which is in a mild state of tune for durability (it must endure at least three race weekends before significant maintenance), and so it doesn’t crowd the lap times of the MotoGP bikes. That being the case, we expect the street version to have more than 130 horses but less than 140.

Full specifications won’t be released until August 23, but the rendering shown here reveals Öhlins suspension, Brembo Monoblock brakes, and sharp, angular styling with a race paint scheme, likely over carbon-fiber bodywork. Triumph brags it has the highest-ever specification and electronic rider technology and a “precision-perfect, championship-winning chassis.” TFT instrumentation and a multi-axis IMU with traction control and cornering ABS are more than likely.

Pricing information will also have to wait until Silverstone, but it’s sure to exceed the Street Triple RS’s $14,000 MSRP by a G-note or three.

The bikes will be showcased during a parade lap over the British GP race weekend when they will be ridden by two former motorcycle world champions, yet unnamed. Since former World Superbike champ James Toseland is Triumph’s Moto2 ambassador, it’s logical to assume he’ll be one of the riders.

According to Triumph, this new limited-edition Daytona "delivers the closest you can get to a genuine Moto2 factory ride for the road." We're looking forward to throwing a leg over it to find out!
