Despite Triumph officials remaining mum on the existence of a revamped Daytona, everyone seems aware they’re working on it. Now there are reports of a test mule out and about on British roads.

The new powerplant is expected to be rated at a clean 100kW, not far behind what the Moto2 race version outputs. Crucially, this is while meeting Euro5 emissions standards. Comparatively, the 2018 Yamaha R6 makes 87kW while the ‘18 Kawasaki ZX-6R creates 97.7kW.

As to looks, we can’t reproduce the image here unfortunately but we can say that it will carry a lot of design elements from the discontinued model. The new one will have better aerodynamics, technology befitting any modern Triumph and some altered bodywork but expect to recognise it as a Daytona when you see it.

There’s no official word on when the real thing will emerge but a reveal at this year’s EICMA show is a fair bet.
