Triumph Daytona 675

After a long string of lackluster middleweight sportbikes from Triumph, the British crew went back to the drawing board for 2006 and came out with the all-new Daytona 675. Radical styling and an Inline-Triple engine highlight the Daytona 675, which looked set to either be their savior or the last nail in the coffin, so to speak. Luckily, the boy from the UK got it right.

Speed, agility and power. This combination makes the latest Triumph Daytona 675R difficult to beat on the track.
In replacing the Inline-Four Daytona 650, which was a complete flop in terms of both performance and sales numbers, engineers had a big task re-vamping the Triumph name in the sporting world. But radical new styling and a torque-laden triple engine which sat in a well-tuned steel trellis frame quickly erased the old 650 from riders’ minds. The Triumph Daytona 675 was a hit from the start, as it gave the character of a V-Twin and the performance on an Inline-Four in a slim and attractive package.

Still one of their best-selling Triumph motorcycles to date, for 2009 the Daytona 675 received a host of minor updates. These include new suspension, as well as lightly restyled bodywork and new monobloc brakes for improved stopping power. As for the engine, roughly three more horsepower and equally more torque are a result of some slight internal tweaking, while a new ECU allows the addition of a plug-in Triumph accessory quick-shifter for full-throttle up-shifts. All this adds up to make what was already a very competitive middleweight sportbike now a contender for class leader.
