Ooh, this is tough.

I think this is one of those bikes that you want for the emotion rather than just another bike. Most of us have bought them because of what it is and not what it does or what it costs.

Yes, there are more powerful bikes available for less.

Yes, there are more modern looking bikes available for less.

But nothing else you could buy will have the Triumph history, the Moto GP legacy, and the reputation of the last of the long-standing Daytona series. Maybe I'm bumbling on, but despite many of my negative posts about this bike, I bought it with my heart and not my pocket.

THAT is the way you have to think. This bike is not for everyone. But if you do get it, you will not be sorry. :028:

Nigel has also replied with the experience of a full stable full of top spec sports bikes,  :028:
I have come to the 765 Mot2 Daytona having never owned a sports bike on the road, I chose the Daytona for its specification and relative exclusivity having the plan of long term ownership. So far I love the look of the bike and having it in the garage, but as I have ridden it a few more miles I am now loving the riding as well  :001:

The fact that the original 675 Daytona has such a positive following and many original owners of those are moving to the Moto2 version also shows it is a sort after bike by those with the most knowledge of these bikes.
Daytona 765 (#494)
2014 Z1000SX (looking to change to 2020 model)
2005 ZX636 (slowly ridden track day bike)
2017 Fantic Casa 250 (hardly ridden enduro)
