2016 - 2017 Triumph Daytona 675 / Daytona 675 R
Back in the early 2000s, Triumph’s four-cylinder, middleweight sportbikes were taking a beating by the 600 cc bikes from the Big Four in Japan. The solution? Drop a cylinder, boost the cubes and start a nearly complete, ground-up rebuild based off the old Daytona 600 chassis. The result? A decidedly nimble and powerful supersport packed away in a deceptively small package. After a number of changes, and the addition of the Daytona 675 R in 2011 that went on to win the Daytona 200 in ’14, the Daytona family moved into the ’2017 model year with many of the features that made the range a success, and a few new ones too. Join me while I dissect this British Rose and try to discover why its fanbase is so rabid, far beyond the usual national/brand loyalty we see all the time.

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.
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.
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.
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.
