The friends at SuperBike Magazine have made a reflective comparison between the most addictive middleweight superbike motorcycles, the Ducati 848, the Honda CBR600RR, the Suzuki GSX-R 600 and the Triumph Daytona 675. What results is a lot of fun and a competitive track incursion.
In one of the most contested classes, 600cc super sport, there wasn’t anything else seen despite four cylinders inline or high-revving V-twins. But things were about to change together with Triumph’s presentation of the Daytona 675. Uniqueness was the key and the results were fabulous.
The Daytona 955i has proved, over the years and miles, that balance is everything. With large amounts of horsepower comes the need for finesse. And while achieving true balance for a sports machine is no easy task, the Daytona 955i excels because it’s been designed, from its inception, as a real world performance motorcycle.
Triumph motorcycles have long had a sense of their own purpose and a sense of distinction and, against a mass of homogenous product, Triumph motorcycles stand out as being unique. Simply put, they’re not like other bikes in look, feel and character. This is a planned evolutionary process that has become clearer over the last two years with bikes like the stunning Rocket III, iconic Speed Triple and breathtaking Sprint ST. These bikes are evidence of a real focus and desire from Triumph to build their bikes, their way. It’s a process that has gathered great success in terms of worldwide sales, press appreciation and brand identification.
