2013 Triumph Daytona 675
There have been many changes, upgrades made to the recent outpouring of Triumph Daytona 675s. The engine’s top-end gets titanium valves allowing it to spin to 14,400 rpm (700 rpm higher than the current generation machine). Triumph engineers fitted another trio of fuel-injectors to supplement the primary sprayers, larger air intake at the nose which sucks in more air and also improves the already impressive harmonics of the Triumph’s motor. The exhaust has been relocated from the tail to the belly of the motorcycle, further improving center of gravity. Peak horsepower is claimed to have increased by two ponies to 126 hp, meanwhile maximum torque has also been boosted by two and is now rated at 55.3 lb-ft. drivetrain refinements include a ‘slip-assist’ clutch and loads more.
