2005 Triumph Daytona 650

2005 Triumph Daytona 650
MSRP $7,999

We were bummed when we were unable to procure a Triumph for our 600 Supersport Shootout, but we knew it was only a matter of time before we would get our hands on the Daytona 650. With the power boost and gearbox revisions it received for ’05, we anticipated that it might’ve upset the finishing order of our comparo, especially in its street portion.
