2009 Triumph Daytona 675 | Motorcycle Preview

Triple Motorcycle Gets Better.

"Triumph has taken an evolutionary approach with the Daytona by applying experience from racing in the 2008 Supersport World Championship directly to the street version of the Daytona 675," according to Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles. "The same technology that was used so successfully on the Supersport racing machines is now available as standard equipment on the 2009 production models that are in Triumph dealers across the country right now."

Weighing a claimed 356 pounds for 2009 and putting out 125 horsepower at 12,600 rpm, the 675cc triple has a rev limit that has been bumped up 450 rpm to 13,950. Part of the weight saving comes from a new exhaust system, which works in concert with a recalibrated EFI system, updated cylinder head, new valves and a reworked combustion chamber.

The Daytona 675 also has a higher first gear and new hydraulic cam chain tensioner. More weight is shaved with lighter wheels (shod with the latest Pirelli SuperCorsa SP tires) and a magnesium cam cover. Triumph also offers a race kit for riders who turn their Daytona 675 into a racer or track day bike. New to the kit this year is a "quickshifter" system.
