As impressive as Triumph’s naked motorcycles are, sportbike enthusiasts are still begging the British bikemaker to re-introduce the Daytona, which was discontinued in 2017 and yes, we’ll be ignoring the Daytona 765 for now, thanks to its very limited production.
One such enthusiast is digital artist Oberdan Bezzi who, instead of whining like us, has taken to his sketch board to put together, this smashing render of what a modern-day Triumph sportbike could look like, probably based on the Trident 660.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4R Could Be The ULTIMATE Four-cylinder Entry-level Sportbike
Love it or hate it, electrification is happening as we speak and it’s more a matter of when, not if, as we see the big guns jump aboard the EV train.
However, Kawasaki’s ideology seems a bit different than the rest, as the Japanese bikemaker is trying to whip up some flabbergasting internal combustion engines before it electrifies its portfolio.
A prime example of this is the four-cylinder Ninja ZX-25R and now, it looks like Kawasaki will soon back it up with a 400cc iteration, the Ninja ZX-4R.

Explained: The Five Most Popular Types Of Motorcycle Frames
When talking motorcycles, the most commonly noted aspects that are touched upon are stuff like horsepower, torque, 0-60mph times, and cubic capacity, and we’re guilty of it too. What goes overlooked, though, is perhaps one of the most key components that holds the entire motorcycle together - the chassis, also known as the frame.
Contrary to what you may think (and we thought at some point too), the frame isn’t just a metal piece built to hold everything together but it plays a pivotal role in defining the bike’s characteristics, which is why over the years, manufacturers have ventured into the depths of physics and chemistry to create different kinds of frames.
Want a lowdown on them? Lucky for you, here’s a guide on the five most common types of motorcycle chassis.

Now, we know Ducati already has the Hypermotard 950 in its stable, serving as a supermoto offering, but hey, the sky’s the limit when it comes to imagining things in the digital world.
