    Has anyone got one yet?

    I was one of the original members on here, probably haven't been on for 7 or 8 years. Still have the 675 but getting the 765 hopefully tomorrow.

    Very excited!

    Yes a couple. Mines in my garage waiting for 1st March!
     
  4. I am also waiting to take mine in March.... But am being called over to the dark side... Going to test ride V2 Panigale next week and revisit the m pack s1000rr tomorrow...

    I had another ride on the s1000rr at the weekend, epic bike it really is! It’s easy to ride and is silky smooth with loads of power and with the benefits of heat grips, cruise control and a sat nav! I think this is where my money is going next.
     
  6. I know, my dealer has 2 m packs coming April... I am a little disappointed with Triumph and their lack of knowledge about one of their flagship bikes. When I pointed out to them it does come with self cancelling indicators, they said sorry for their small.mistake!

    I just feel like triumph will pull the rug from under all of us with this Daytona 765... And we may be left feeling a bit shafted by the bike and price...

    Also I am buying a bike to ride to death so am a.little reluctant to do it on the Moto2.... It isn't all about residuals but I want it to be worth something and not drop like a stone's in a few years time. Paying 16k and finding it out it struggles to get 8 in 3 years time...

    What do you mean by “pulling the rug”?
    I’m sure the bike will ride just as good with or without self cancelling indi’s. I’ve a gen 2 and never once thought this bike would be perfect with self cancelling indicators.
     
  8. I also have a 2015 d675r and love it fella... I am maybe expecting too much from triumph as a company... I am not saying that the indicators make the bike, I am saying that they didn't even know they had put the damn things on!!!

    I am unsettled as it being the LAST Daytona. With their partnership now in India, I can see a sub 11k Daytona in the wings... After all they want to make profit, and think some of us may take a mighty hit.

    I think Triumph will make another sports bike but I don’t think they will be call a “Daytona”. That’s the way they will get around saying the moto 2 is the last one of that bike.

    By the way the self cancelling indicators aren’t all that. I’ve switched the function off on my Speed RS as they keep cancelling when they shouldn’t and it ended up being dangerous.
     
  10. I think, as I’ve said before, buying this bike as a future investment is probably not a smart move. It doesn’t have enough about it that would have to have been made by Triumph in-house and therefore is quite easy to copy.

    If you buy it for what it is which is a Daytona with more shove and some nice details that you are going to ride and use then it makes sense because it isn’t significantly more than it’s competitors which are the panigale v2 and the F3 800.

    To make something truly collectible and hold value it has to be rare (which this is) and give an experience that you can’t get elsewhere. Anyone who has ridden an ‘R’ model Ducati will be able to testify to this, it’s like every part had a going over to make it do it’s job better.

    Personally I’m not sure about the logic of flipping between this and the S1000rr. In my opinion the two are very very different animals and from a different concept, for me, if you even want the power of a 1000 then you are a different use case than what this bike is meant for and with 128hp it isn’t going to satisfy.

    Btw, to be clear I’m not bagging the bike, but I would buy it to ride it, not to try and make money on, it’s just not going to do that. I don’t think it will devalue quite as drastically though as some think.

    Out of interest, what was the GFV on the PCP deal? As this is often an indicator of confidence in the resale at 3 years old. I would expect MV to have a low GFV tbh but Ducati’s are often high, 3 year old panigale coming out at nearly £8k GFV
     
  11. Having the self cancelling indicators isn't the issue lol. I am not fussed about them, but triumph don't even know what spec they built the bike! Even down to the Bluetooth not being available on a screen they took form the parts bin! I am just a bit gutted that a 16k bike is not just a bit more special... I think they got their marketing spiel bang on and dipped a few with their fancy words... I am in no doubt that it will handle superbly and the 20% torque across the range will be fantastic, I just have a slight concern in MY mind that it isn't saying wow to me over and above my superb 675r.... I don't want buyer's remorse and then have to find another 8k to get something that is right
     
  12. I agree Phil, I don't want to look at it and try to make money in 15 years time. I want to ride the bejesus out of it! I don't know the GMFV as buying it outright bar trading in my 675r 2015 or selling it privately (on here if anyone wants it)

    The V2 Panigale at 15k rocks a few boxes but am not a Ducati fanboy, hence going to ride it next week. I have ridden the s1000rr 2019 twice now and once I got my head round it being a different beast, I loved it it handles like a 600 and has that low to mid punch for everyday riding courtesy of that shiftcam thingy. Plus I know what I am getting with the BMW, there is not cloak and dagger like with the Daytona. I am having to make a hard decision, as live my d675r and know that the 765 will wow, but I like the fact I will get everything and more on the m pack for my track days, my touring trips and for all year round use (heated grips, cruise, satnav, hill start assist, launch control etc.etc.)

    These are the reasons I pulled out of the deal of the 765

    My 675R is a fantastic bike, I just feel the 765 isn’t a big jump up for me to trade it in against it
     
  14. The big jump in my opinion at the moment is... The price, struggling is the operative word, thought I wanted it but now a little unsure

    I got myself so stressed out about the decision. In the end I just thought is this stress worth it. Nope
     
  18. That's exactly the situation I am in!!! I should be looking forward to the new bike, but ending up stressing it.... Stuff it lol might just keep my trusty d67r as it does everything and more in the Twisties and at Cadwell![​IMG]
     
  19. I know the feeling mate, I have a lovely clean 848 evo and the 675r and I really want a panigale V2 but I’m not sure whether to sell both which would give me circa £10500 but I’d then have no bike I could confidently use on track, and like having the variation of two bikes, so back to whether I sell the Daytona and buy a older 959 and keep the 848 another year (the 848 and 959 are totally different concepts from a riding perspective)

    The v2 is great but in reality it can’t be worlds apart from the 959, so perhaps a used 899/959 would be the way to go for you
