2008 Triumph Daytona 675
When we first got a taste of the Triumph Daytona 675 during Supersport Shootout IV we were smitten with its combination of superb handling, powerful brakes and that raspy three-cylinder powerplant. In the end, the 675 won both road and track portions of the fourth edition of our middleweight face-off and established itself as a pure sportbike like no other.
