    If it was allowed in MW it would certainly shake things up or at least make the JDMs refresh their bikes.

    It's a B class bike and HWT...just like the 959.

    Perfect bike for CCS. Reminds me of that show "Who's Line Is It Anyway ", where the rules are made up and the points don't matter.

    I don’t see them selling a single bike to the general public, if it’s going to be $30K. The average person would be asking themselves why they wouldn’t buy a Pani V4, RSV, S1000RR, etc. Even the Aprilia RS660 is more intriguing than a big motor Daytona.

    Whatever happened to the actual Moto 2 bike that was running in the BSB with a 675 motor? The Spirit I think it was, I haven't seen them update their FB in a long time. Did it get abandoned?

    Rumor is they are sold out. So much for not selling.

    Livengood R6 territory, easy. With 636cc. :D

    Pretty easy to "sell out" when all you do is sign up with no deposit.

    One of my old teammates (also an engine builder) built one to Moto 2 specs and he says he's getting 150hp. It runs really well, and still corners great. My ZX10 struggles to make up ground on that bike until he's well into the triple digits. I can definitely see the attraction to that chassis / motor combo.

    Did he take a striple 765 motor or do the jamie hanshaw 675 to 765 method? Is he running it in a 675R chassis?

    It is Jamie I was referring to.

    Since he retired nearly 20 years ago.... you raced under the Dega banner then?

    Im going to assume it will be a mash up of the Street Triple 765RS and Daytona 675R. The 765RS already has great brakes (Brembo M50s and Brembo master), good electronics package and it is lighter than the previous gen Street Triple.

    So all Triumph needs to do to switch from a 765RS for this limited edition is put on some Ohlins forks, TTX36, clipons, throw in a different set of cams and bump the compression up a little more.

    It's not a $30k bike, but if they sell it for $17-18k, I could see it selling out...

    Yep, in 98 as an amateur.

    Depends on how they go with it and IMO both options would sell out:

    #1 - $30k

    - Ohlins TTX and forks
    - Brembo Stylema's
    - Electronics suite - autoblipper, IMU, LC, WC, etc...
    - kit parts like lightweight bodywork, rearsets, Arrow Ti exhaust, LED lights
    - forged wheels

    #2 - $16k

    675R spec with 765 shoehorned in

    Sweatypants I am so smart! S-M-R-T... I mean S-M-A-R-T!

    Not sure about them, but the Triumph test mule (the flat black one with the graphics) for this whole endeavor was on ebay UK last week.

    I’m surprised more manufacturers haven’t come out with track-only motorcycles at semi-reasonable prices.

    The track day/race guys usually have some money to throw around to buy the best bikes for whatever class they are running in. I’d have to imagine there is *some* market for a factory prepped R6, ZX-10, etc.

    I’m also surprised none of the manufacturers (besides KTM) have put out a really aggressive ULW twin. Like a ZX-400R - something with a real sport-oriented frame, USD forks, suspension that doesn’t suck ass.
