Triumph motorcycles have long had a sense of their own purpose and of distinction. Against a mass of homogenous product Triumphs easily stand out; simply put they're not like other bikes in look, feel and character. The Rocket III, Speed Triple and Daytona 675 are bikes that dramatically underscore the innate difference found in all Triumphs.
As the first three-cylinder super sports middleweight the Daytona 675 stands alone in the most hotly contested arena in motorcycling. Of course it can be compared to many motorcycles - and on such occasions invariably comes out on top, as the world's press has found - but in one single stroke it's redefined just how a middleweight sports bike should look and feel. If the Daytona 675's unique DNA is a large part of its appeal, its stunning performance is the winning flourish.
In the sports bike market many machines are almost seen as disposable by their riders and treated accordingly. The beautiful 675 Daytona is the opposite; an exciting bike that owners will never tire of riding. Its 675cc, water-cooled three-cylinder 12-valve power unit is extremely compact and features Keihin closed-loop fuel injection and stacked six-speed close ratio transmission. Peak power of 123bhp is delivered at 12500rpm, with 53ft.lbf torque at 11750rpm.
The standard exhaust features an efficient under seat exhaust and also utilizes a secondary valve to boost torque low down. While the Daytona 675's engine is refined, the triple's innate character remains with typical Triumph toughness engineered into every part.
The Daytona 675's aluminum frame is fabricated with open-back cast spars, which wrap over the top of the motor, accentuating further the benefits of the narrow three-cylinder design. Rake is set at 23.5, trail at 86.8mm with a wheelbase of 54.8in. Dry weight is 363lbs.
Suspension is provided by top quality fully adjustable Kayaba 41mm upside down forks and piggyback reservoir rear shock, also fully adjustable. The riding position of the Daytona 675 is extremely sports focused - the narrow seat is firmly padded for maximum feedback, the clip-on handlebars are set low and rear set foot pegs high.
A radial master cylinder and twin radial four-piston calipers work on the front fully floating 308mm discs, which are matched by a 220mm rear disc and single piston caliper. The wheels are a lightweight five-spoke design with dimensions of 17 x 3.5in (front) and 17 x 5.5in (rear) and wear super sticky Pirelli Super Corsa road/track compound tires. Front tire size is 120/70 ZR17, the rear a 180/55 ZR17.
The Daytona 675's digital instrument console has the usual trip functions as well as displaying average fuel economy. Also featured is a sophisticated lap timer - useful for comparing successive lap times on a circuit as well as average and maximum speed for each lap.
A programmable gear change indicator illuminates seven LEDs to let you know the optimum point at which to change up, for maximum performance: You can program in both the engine speed and the illumination sequence. The LCD panel also tells you which gear you are in at all times.
Stylish twin projector beam front headlights (one for low and one for high beam) give an excellent spread of light and are matched with a lightweight LED rear light unit. Seat height is 32.5in, fuel capacity is 4.6 gal US.
Color options for the Daytona 675 are Scorched Yellow, Tornado Red and Graphite Grey. A full range of official Triumph accessories will be available for the 675 Daytona, including carbon fiber front fender, in-fills, heel guards and exhaust cover. A free flowing Triumph exhaust can is also available (for off-road use only) and racing specialists Arrow produce a full Titanium system (available through Triumph dealers) that saves over 6kg in weight and adds 5PS, again for off-road use only.
The Daytona 675 sits firmly within a class of one and delivers incredible performance with its exciting, powerful engine and intuitive, razor-sharp chassis. It looks, sounds and feels like nothing else. It has redrawn the super sports middleweight map and truly earned the praise heaped upon it by some of the toughest critics in the motorcycle press.
