All good so far, then, but building a Daytona 765 may not be quite that simple. First, while simply sticking the 765 engine into the old bike—as the firm has done to create the prototype that’s been spied recently—will work for testing, it’s not guaranteed to bring customers flooding to showrooms. The Daytona’s last styling update came six years ago, in 2013, and the earliest this bike could conceivably reach dealers is 2020. Could Triumph really relaunch a bike with seven-year-old bodywork and a chassis that’s effectively twice that old, dating back to the Daytona’s 2006 launch? It’s unthinkable, particularly given the fact that the firm has upped its game in terms of styling and technology in more recent years.
