2011 Triumph Motorcycle
Designed for supersport racing that allows a 675cc triple to compete against 600cc fours, the Triumph Daytona 675 R is the only flagship sportbike in the English company’s line-up.
Pumping out 124 horsepower and 53 ft/lbs of torque, the 675 gives the smaller fours no quarter.
FIM Road Racing
The FIM released the 2011 list of homologated motorcycles that are able to compete in World Superbike, World Supersport and the Superstock 1000 and 600 classes.
The newest addition in the superbike and superstock 1000 classes is the all-new Kawasaki ZX-10R, either in standard or ABS.
Provisional WSS Entry List
The FIM released the provisional entry list for the 2011 World Supersport season. The last-minute surprise was that the BE1 ParkinGo Team of Chaz Davies and Luca Scassa will be switching from Triumph Daytona 675 motorcycles to a pair of Yamaha YZF-R6 machines.
Triumph-owned Triumph Daytona 675 have been awarded this year’s AMA Pro Moto-GT1 class series championship. The team’s second place finish at New Jersey Motorsports Park gave them a 35-point lead in the season’s point standings, which allowed them to mathematically clinch the series title.
"After the first few rounds, it looked like we would have to win every race just to have a shot at the title. Then we won at Barber and a number of other teams had some bad luck, which helped put us back in the game," said Mark Crozier.
