I'd heard the same thing reported in the article.... that the Daytona is no more (they didn't even bother bringing one to the 2015 IMS in NY).

Hopefully this means there will be a new one.

Haha I like triumphs and have one for a street bike right now but I can't help but feel like they might be biting off more than they can chew marketing-wise when each moto2 failure while being ridden by one of those aliens could be championship altering news.
