As per my newbie thread I'm in the market for a new bike. Love sports bikes with farings and love the Daytona. I only want to buy brand new so that means at present - no Daytona.

So..test rode the Triple RS  and loved it.

Question now is....will there be a 765 Daytona and if so is it likely to be next year? I really want a new bike and would pull the trigger on the Triple (although I'm not a massive naked bike fan)..but would be gutted if 6 months after getting one they announce a new Daytona.

If it's likely to be out next year id wait..but if not I'm sure id be happy with the Triple for a couple of years.

What's people's thought on the possibility of a 765 Daytona in the next 12-16 months?

I'm affaid the market for the Daytona is a hard one.
Yamaha R6 is the only one so far to be updated.
The Street is ideally suited to it's name.
Yes loved my 13+ Daytona .
Was fine with the Tiger xrx tbh to a point.That only had a screen.
Yes the RS could probably stick it to alot of middle waigh track day bike's .
As I mainly ride B roads the lack of the plastic isn't making very much impact on my enjoyment.
Maybe a pugin screen like on the Speed Triple might b a later mod .
New Daytona 765 might be able to capitalise on the link with Moto 2 .

As I said earlier Triumph would be daft not to capitalise in a Daytona refresh also an updated speed triple could be done to really bring it all in line and bang up to date.

What does to take to make a Daytona? Would it just be adding fairing, new rear set and clip ons to the RS and then promoting it? If so there must be profit if even a small number of bikes are sold.

My prediction: we'll see one in spring '18, exactly twelve months after the new Street was released. But then I know feck all about the bike industry.

They couldn't sell the last Daytona so I doubt they will make another, naked,adventure,retro all sell well but sports bike don't.

There might be a resurgence with the Daytona in view of Triumph supplying Moto 2 with the 765 engine next season. There will be a lot of development work going on including race parts, might be foolish not to capitalise, all imo though.

You might be right but I doubt it,if they did make a 765 sports bike what would it cost? The naked is 10 grand! BMW do the 1000rr for 11 grand don't they?

S1000RR are 15000 new so there should be room for a D765R, agree though the 765RS is pricey.

BMW S1000RR is 14,500 new at best...a massive jump from the 9500 You can get the Triple RS for.

You may get a S1000R for 12,000 with a bit of haggling.

The selling point for a 765 Daytona could be 10,500 - all they need is a few farings and clipons onto the Triple.
