2011 Triumph Daytona 675
The best supersport bike in the world or a class of its own? Designed for the racetrack, to compete with the best in the supersport class, Triumph’s Daytona 675 is the bike to beat on both the road and the track. Winner of the 2009 Supertest ‘King of Supersports’ award (for the fourth time) and MCN’s Sportsbike of the Year, the Daytona 675 delivers a killer blow with its combination of outstanding handling and a storming three-cylinder engine.
