2011 Triumph Daytona 675 | Preview

2011 Triumph

The Triumph Daytona 675 first sailed the 675cc three-cylinder format in a sea of 600cc Japanese fours and since 2006 the triple has garnered many accolades, including two Masterbike titles and an undefeated three Supertest titles. (The 2011 MV Agusta F3 now joins the triple ranks)

The Triumph has also proved successful in supersport racing around the world, winning national championships around the world and finishing fourth in the 2010 Supersport World Championship in the hands of the ParkinGO BE1 Racing team’s Chaz Davies.

The latest specification Daytona 675 delivers 125PS (123hp) at 12,600rpm with a class-leading 72Nm torque, making the Triumph one of the most flattering sportsbikes to ride on both the road and track, and endowing it with an addictive soundtrack only a triple can provide.

The engine itself is an integral part of the overall design, with the stacked gearbox allowing for a very compact powerplant that contributes to one of the lightest and most balanced supersport bikes on the market.

As you would expect from a class-leading sportsbike, the Daytona 675 is well equipped in the chassis department too. The fully-adjustable 41mm inverted front forks and rear monoshock unit both benefit from sophisticated high and low speed damping control, allowing motorcycle riders to set their Triumph 675 up for maximum accuracy while retaining a plush ride.

Radially-mounted Nissin monobloc calipers give outstanding levels of feedback and stopping power, while lightweight wheels keep unsprung mass down and contribute to an agile motorcycle that changes direction in a heartbeat.

To fully exploit the Daytona 675 chassis, the motorcycle rolls out of the factory wearing Pirelli’s race-developed SuperCorsa SP tires for supreme levels of grip and feedback. At 162kg dry (185kg fully fueled and ready to ride) the lightweight Triumph is a true race bike for the road.

The Triumph has sleek and handsome lines are complemented by a range of classic single-tone color schemes. The Phantom Black and Caspian Blue options are fitted with gold colored wheels, while the new for 2011 Diablo Red comes with graphite colored rims.

A full range of race inspired Triumph motorcycle accessories are available for the 2011 Daytona, including carbon parts, Arrow slip on silencer, quick shifter and Ohlins rear suspension unit.

A Triumph race kit is also available for competitors who wish to enter their Daytona 675 motorcycle in supersport and superstock championships.
