The Daytona is back, finally! Triumph has put an end to all your prayers and has unveiled the all-new Daytona 765 Moto2 Limited Edition. As the name suggests, the bike is the road-legal version of the company's Moto2 race bike and it's been developed in order to give the customers a taste of what the brand's newly developed 765cc triple-cylinder engine on a racetrack.
