2007 Triumph Daytona 675
That was the type of brazen attitude which made the Daytona such a success when it burst on the scene as an all-new-model last year. The British answer to the cookie-cutter congruency of Japanese 600cc Supersport machinery enjoyed enthusiastic praise from the media. 2006 was a good year indeed for the 675. It racked up accolades from a variety of different magazines and swept both street and track segments of MotorcycleUSA.com’s Supersport shootout IV, as well as our pick for Best New Streetbike of 2006.
