Another thing is even though the 600 supersport class is dead there are still 750 class bikes, Gixer750, MV800, Duke 898 etc and the thought of the litre class bikes now touching 15k I'm sure there's space for a premium 765 Tona. As you say, just bolt on a fairing, clip ons and rear sets and use the RS lump job done. Premium bikes will always sell.
Chaos, panic, destruction.........my work here is done.

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.

You'll get the second part of your wish, but I doubt very much you'll get the first part.

Rumours are that the 1050 will get an interim make over shortly, so expect the screen from the 765 to make an appearance as well as some other bits and pieces.  The Speed needs to be updated so there's a decent gap in power between the Street and the Speed.  There is more potential with the 765 engine, as the Moto2 deal shows. 135bhp - 140 bhp may be possible. 

I suspect (but don't know) that Triumph will want to take on the super nakeds so that will mean a 170bhp+ bike

It took Triumphs years to recovery the costs of developing and selling the 675 Daytona.  There really isn't a big enough market now for sportsbike for them to want to make a new one.  I might be wrong and Triumph may surprise us.

Pure Triumph in Woburn are building a limited number of 5 x units where they are taking an RS and fitting a Daytona fairing.
The bike will be about 15-16k by the time they've finished fettling with it.
Best be quick if you want one as 2 are already pre-sold.

Can imagine insurance will be the sticking point with those. Non standard etc.

Probably but it would be worth it if you have the money.

Wow...6,000 for a few fairings!!! .....price is OTT if you ask me. If Triumph were to release a Daytona factory model it would probably retail for around 11,000 so would be pretty gutting if you'd just thrown 16k at one of these only to find in 2018 you could get one for 5,000 cheaper

They will find buyers though no doubt.

True but you are paying for a custom built limited number which makes it one of a kind and therefore considerably more valuable.

I'd love to see a sport -tourer version.....along the lines off VFR800/Ducati Supersport.....an all rounder sport bike .....this class has almost disapeared but to my mind it's the perfect all round real world sport bike for commuting to touring with the odd track day, a little weather protection is nice to have for all year use  but still want a lightweight fun bike.....in fact I may buy a Supersport next unless something else new comes along from Triumph.

It would make sense to do a half faired tourer and a Daytona. They could reduce their model range by getting rid of 75% of those 800 Tiger models  :230:
