Fans of the Triumph Daytona sportbike have something to be excited about now that spy shots of a Daytona 765 have been released. It's been a few years since the supersport machine has been in production, but recent moves by the brand into Moto2 and its use of the 765 triple as a base for the world championship machines gave riders a silver lining.

Since bodywork is likely to change between now and an official unveil, it’s hard to determine exactly what the final product will look like. But the similarities between the spied bike and the Moto2 motorcycle are notable. Particularly the more aggressive lines throughout, the cutouts in the side fairings, and the style of the exhaust canister. This is a fairly dramatic contrast to the smoother aspect of the 2017 Daytona 675, but, again, we can’t make any claims as to the final look of the forthcoming machine though we wouldn’t be sad to see the production version keep close to the look of the Moto2 bike.

The Street Triple RS-derived 765 triple is also sure to be a more potent beast than the version currently available in naked trim. If we take some cues from the modifications made to get this mill in shape for Moto2, we could expect things like a changed cylinder head and valves, updated covers for a slimmer profile, and altered gearing.

It’s clear that the prototype is using Öhlins front suspension, likely the NIX 30 setup similar to that on the previous 675R, as well as Brembo Stylema hardware in braking department. The main frame, swingarm, and subframe don’t appear to be dramatically different from the 2017 675R from the photos we’ve seen.

We’d also expect to see the latest and greatest electronics package Triumph has to offer on the Daytona 765, but we’ll have to wait for official word on what that suite will look like.
