Photos of the 2006 Triumph Daytona 675. 2006 Triumph Daytona 675 First Ride.
- Leaving Malaysia for the return airline-marathon home, I believed a lot of Triumph's positive feeling for the new Daytona 675.
- 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.
- Perhaps the most flattering view of the Daytona is the profile of the Graphite Gray version.
- 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.
