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.

Triumph’s stable of motorcycles offers a list of some of the best bikes money can buy. Of these models, the one that attracts competitive riders is the Daytona 675, a bike that not only poses impressive qualities on the road, but has also set a new standard in the ultra-competitive supersport class.
For the 2012 model, Triumph dressed up the Daytona 675 with a fresh new look, thanks to new graphics and finishes, as well as a choice between Phantom Black or Diablo Red color options. In addition, the bike also receives new “Daytona” decals and a Daytona 675R-style Jet Black bellypan, all complemented with new dark finishes to the footrest hangers and brake discs. The 2012 machine also features new clutch and generator covers, embossed with the Triumph logo, and made to look like the multi-purpose rocket that it is.
A full range of race-inspired Triumph accessories are available for the Daytona 675, including carbon parts, Arrow slip-on exhaust, quickshifter, and Öhlins rear suspension unit.
The latest-specification Daytona 675 carries a 675cc three-cylinder engine that delivers 124 brake horsepower at 12,600rpm to go with a class-leading 53 lb/ft of torque, making it one of the most impressive and versatile sportsbikes not just in Triumph’s stable, but in the entire market altogether. 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.
Finally, the Daytona 675 is well equipped in the chassis department, too, thanks in part to fully-adjustable 41mm inverted front forks and a rear mono shock unit, both of which benefit from sophisticated high- and low-speed damping control, allowing riders to set their Daytona 675s up for maximum accuracy while retaining a plush ride.

Triumph brought at EICMA Show the 2011 Daytona 675 R. Starting with a standard Dayton 675, Triumph engineers worked in conjunction with Swedish suspension specialists Ohlins to create a machine that would really be appreciated on the circuit by expert riders.
Ohlins contributed its revolutionary 43 mm NIX30 forks usually only found on the racetrack and ultra-exotic Italian machines ans its MotoGT developed TTX36 rear suspension unit, while radially-mounted monoblock calipers and radial master cylinder from Italian specialist Brembo were specified to ensure Dayton 675R also has class-leading stopping power.
The Daytona 675R also gets: a standard lift quickshifter and a host of carbon fiber bodywork, including hugger, silencer heat shield ad front mudguard.
Mechanically the Daytona 675R is identical to the standard Daytona 675, delivering 125 HP at 12,600 rpm with a class-leading 72 NM of torque. The sports bike also get sporty new graphics that include a unique Triumph tank script and a special color scheme: Crystal White bodywork is contrasted with a race style black belly pan and distinctive red subframe.
There’s little you can reproach to Triumph about the way their Daytona 675 looks, but ways to make it better are continuously found both by tuners and owners around the world. What we’ve recently came across is actually a supposition regarding to weather Audi-like LED headlamps further enhance the aggressive note of middleweight British sports bike.
We think this looks quite striking and might catch on to the motorcycle industry as well, but in the end it’s all up to the Hinckley-based company to make their move as result of feedback from fans.
Triumph’s 2010 model range has two new Special Edition models, the Daytona 675 SE and Thunderbird SE.
The British manufacturer’s high spec middleweight supersport bike, the Daytona 675 SE stands out both from the standard model and from the previous SE model thanks to new flank graphics, white striped wheel, race-inspired brake and clutch levers and a host of carbon parts from Triumph’s accessories catalogue. This bike will hit dealerships on March 1st and have a price tag of $12,700.
In what the 2010 Triumph Thunderbird SE is concerned, it comes with standard ABS and gets the all-new Carnival Red color. Various genuine Triumph accessories are available for this model too. Expect to find the 2010 Thunderbird SE in dealerships from early March with an MSRP of $18,900.
Apart from the above mentioned, both bikes are technically unchanged from their standard siblings. Full story
British engineering and refinement standards have been raised with the introduction of the latest Daytona 675! Triumph took the decision to slightly refine their supersports model and they managed well with the self-imposed challenge. Although power was not increased, the Daytona has probably the best chassis in the middleweight sports class, making it an award-winning machine.
The Triumph Daytona 675 was always a lonely wolf, but German company Six Monkeys did their best in coming up with a big brother for the only supersport model of the British motorcycle manufacturer. They brought in a 1050cc engine and then tuned the fuel injection system and the airbox so that they can talk big numbers such as 139bhp at 9,100rpm and 116Nm of torque at 7,600rpm.
While we’re talking about the same powerplant as found on the Triumph Tiger and Speed Triple models, this bike’s carbon fiber bodywork is entirely new and the overall shape and style does remind us of the middleweight production Daytona. Also, this custom motorcycle features Wilbers suspension components and steering damper, while the exhaust system was supplied by BOS and the tires are Dunlop Qualifier RR.
Does this look like a Triumph Daytona 675 on steroids or what? I’m not sure about the color though. Full story
Triumph’s middleweight supersport model, the Daytona 675, has had a very successful year and it all started when the British engineers tweaked the engine for 3bhp more, reduced weight with as much as 3kg and added Nissin calipers, while also giving it a sportier look. With all these improvements, it won the Supertest and Masterbike awards, while MCN called it ‘Sportsbike of the Year’.
So this is clearly a very successful model that Triumph keeps virtually unchanged for 2010 and hopes for at least the same results while preparing their next move. Meanwhile, fans will have to declare themselves satisfied by the new Caspian Blue paint with gold wheels or even turn to the Red and Black 2009 color schemes, which are still available for next year’s model.
Apart from the rather cool new color scheme, the 2010 Triumph Daytona 675 also comes with new clocks, which do look better, but could have brought in more functions apart from average fuel economy and lap timer-equipped setup, which also characterize the 2009 model year. Full story
As hard to believe as it might be, this is actually a Triumph Daytona 1200 motorcycle built from lego. We do not know the number of pieces involved, but this sure looks like a whole lot of work for a bunch of kids. They all receive an A+ from the TopSpeed team!
