2006 Triumph Daytona 675 First Ride
The Daytona's aggressive riding position works out on the track, but the minimal wind protection and sport ergonomics would make long distance rides a drag.
At the end of our test there was one more treat in store for us, with a final session on board the Arrow-equipped machine. The addition of this race exhaust is said to drop close to 20 pounds and gain 5 horsepower.
The Daytona's cockpit is perhaps Triumph's best ever, offering a sweet combination of legibility and style.
Leaving Malaysia for the return airline-marathon home, I believed a lot of Triumph's positive feeling for the new Daytona 675.
While racers will want the hard edge focus the new generation of super-sixes give, the more casual rider is going to eat up the 675's long gears and highly forgiving, flexible three-cylinder motor.
Though without a class to race in, the Daytona 675 will be highly regarded by track-day regulars and casual riders, due to the flexibility of the grunty three-cylinder 675cc Triple.
A few changes in the suspension set-up and the Daytona improved its stability through the turns, allowing Sir Neale to slice through traffic.
True enjoyment of the Daytona 675 began once the mental adjustment had been made not to ride the new Triple like you would a four-cylinder.
The all-new engine produces a claimed 123 horsepower at 12,500 rpm, with a peak torque figure of 53 foot pounds coming just 750 rpm lower at 11,750.
Sepang International racetrack is a big circuit, with a wide variety of corners and two long, fast straights thrown in for top speed and ultra-hard braking.
