2012 Triumph Daytona 675R

When you’re looking for a road and track-ready supersport machine that’s itching to be unleashed out into the world, there aren’t a lot of bikes in the market that can be considered better choices than the Daytona 675R.

Taking the already sublime Daytona 675 as its base, the 675R is the fruit of a successful collaboration between Triumph’s engineers and Swedish suspension specialists Öhlins. Together, the two companies have created a machine that can really be appreciated on the circuit by expert riders.

The carbon fiber-clad Daytona 675R is the picture of a sexy beast. It comes with a hugger, an exhaust heat shield, a front mudguard, a standard-fit quick shifter, and the Daytona 675’s comprehensive instrumentation, which includes a lap timer and programmable gear change lights. A range of official Triumph accessories are also available for the Daytona 675R, including an Arrow slip-on exhaust, race-style CNC machined levers, and single seat cowl.

Mechanically the Daytona 675R features the same powertrain as that of the standard Daytona 675 - a powerful 675cc liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine - delivering an impressive 124 brake horsepower at 12,600rpm to go with a class-leading 53 lb/ft of torque. This setup makes it as engaging and flattering as any supersports bike on the market today.

As far as Öhlins is concerned, the leading authority in suspension systems contributed its revolutionary 43mm NIX30 forks, a system that’s usually only found on the racetrack or ultra-exotic Italian machines, and its MotoGP-developed TTX36 rear suspension unit. Radially mounted Monobloc calipers and a radial master cylinder from Italian specialist Brembo were specified to ensure the Daytona 675R also has class-leading stopping power.
