With a long line of ex-racers, journalists and celebrities all queuing up to have a go, we thought we’d bring you a round-up of what everyone is saying about the prototype on social media.
I've always loved Suzuki's GSXR 750 so I jumped at the chance of a proper good thrash on the new Triumph 765 (moto2) today. It was properly set up, good brakes, suspension & Dunlop moto2 slicks.— Simon Crafar (@simoncrafar) August 27, 2018
It is nothing short of brilliant.

We’ve just spent the afternoon riding this: the @UKTriumph Moto2 test bike. The fuelling, the power, the drive it gives is very impressive. It would make a great production bike... pic.twitter.com/SfmQsfZeOZ— Motor Cycle News (@MCNnews) 27 August 2018
