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.

Diablo Red and Phantom Black make this motorcycle cool. A lot of stuff or accessories are included such as the quick shifter, arrow slip-om exhaust. This comes in sporty look.
