The new 2013 Triumph Daytona is offered with many fresh features which enhance its racer character and make it ready for the track. Starting with the sleek design and finishing with the new triple motor, the bike has all it needs to give you an unforgiveable rush of adrenaline every time you get behind the handlebar.
Talking about the engine, the Triumph Daytona 675R is equipped with a completely new Liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder unit with a capacity of 675cc. The cylinder block is made of solid aluminium with ceramic coated liners. Thanks to this feature, it was possible to raise the engine’s power from 125ps to 128ps and the torque from 73Nm to 75Nm. The rev limit was also increased to 14,400 rpm, with a larger bore and shorter stroke, while the peak power is now achieved at 12,600rpm.
Besides the new engine, the 2013 Triumph Daytona also comes with new frame geometry, Brembo breaks, a quick shifter, carbin trim, mass centralisation and race-derived suspension.

It’s the R in perfect
In the Daytona 675R, we’ve made exceptional the new standard. This is a true track day tool. Focused. Committed. And in the right hands, untouchable. The storming new triple motor delivers even more power all the way through to 14,400 rpm redline. The new frame geometry, mass centralisation and race-derived suspension enables razor sharp handling and confidence-inspiring feedback. Add brembo brakes, a quickshifter, carbon trim and some subtle styling details and you know you’re riding a true thoroughbred motorcycle.
Be under no illusion. This is a racer for the road. The Daytona 675R is not a compromise. Fully adjustable suspension, including adjustable swingarm pivot, lets you dial in exactly the kind of handling characteristics you want. Brembo brakes combine outstanding feel with extraordinary stopping power. And at the heart of everything, the all-new triple motor, now with titanium valves, larger bore and shorter stroke, is ready to deliver instant, mind-blowing power and that truly awesome induction roar.
The Daytona’s triple engine is completely new. The cylinder block is now solid aluminium with ceramic coated liners, making the whole unit inherently stronger. This allowed us to increase the torque and engine speed, giving you more power. Amazingly, we could achieve all this whilst maintaining an overall narrow and compact package. Power is up from 125ps to 128ps and from 73Nm to 75Nm.
By increasing the rev limit to 14,400 rpm, with a larger bore and shorter stroke, the engine is now even more responsive to rider input. Peak power is now at 12,600rpm running up to that new redline, and with more power delivered more smoothly throughout the rev range – roll the throttle and you’ll be rewarded with instant drive.
To give the motor more air to breathe, we increased the size of the air intake and channelled the airflow through the headstock, so we can force even more air in and create more power.
The new engine now operates with twin injectors per cylinder, which are both compact and provide more accurate fuelling. Revised mapping has helped boost the torque throughout the rev range. But we’ve also made this Daytona engine cleaner and therefore more fuel-efficient .
A more powerful triple engine, revving at higher speeds, demanded the highest specification valves. We chose titanium for the new Daytona 675. Not only are they stronger, they’re lighter and have been reshaped to provide a smoother gas flow , resulting in performance boosts throughout the rev range.
The closer to the centre a bike it carries its weight, the better handling the bike will be. By relocating the silencer to under the engine, rapid direction changes are now more fluid and more controlled. Rider input is rewarded with an incredibly controlled response.
Get the real race feel with clutchless gear changes without even having to back off the throttle, maximising acceleration. (Also available as an accessory option on the standard model).
The Daytona 675R boasts race pedigree Öhlins suspension. A TTX rear shock and NIX30 inverted forks offer a wider range of settings. The firmer settings turn the R model into a true track day tool and offers unparalleled levels of feedback to the committed rider.
High-spec carbon fibre cockpit infills - light and strong.
At the rear, a styled hugger sits neatly on the swingarm. Looks fantastic and keeps the dirt off your Öhlins suspension.
The Daytona 675R can be instantly recognised by its red rear subframe and red pinstriped wheels.
