2010 Triumph Daytona 675
The best supersport bike in the world
or a simply in a class of its own? Designed for the
racetrack, to compete with the best in the supersport
class, Triumph’s Daytona 675 is the bike to
beat on both road and track.
With its brilliant, narrow three-cylinder
engine the Daytona 675 is a unique proposition in
an otherwise conformist sea of across the frame fours.
The latest specification 675cc engine pumps out 126PS
at 12,600rpm and revs to a 13,950rpm redline, while
the triple cylinder configuration delivers amazing
acceleration from low revs in any gear. And all with
class leading handling and an accompanying soundtrack
that delivers an unmistakable howl from the underseat
Critics readily acclaim the Daytona
as the benchmark for modern sportsbikes.
Winner of the 2009 Supertest ‘King
of Supersports’ award for four years running,
as well as MCN’s Sportsbike of the Year, the
Daytona 675 delivers a killer blow with its combination
of outstanding handling and a storming three-cylinder
engine, which even moved Japanese magazine Motorcyclist
to award the Triumph its first ever perfect score
in its monthly ‘Ride with Edge’ feature.
As expected, the Daytona 675 comes
equipped with top-of-the-line suspension and brakes.
The fully-adjustable 41mm upside down forks and rear
monoshock unit both benefit from highly sophisticated
high and low speed damping control, allowing riders
to set their Daytona up with maximum accuracy. Radial-mount
Nissin monobloc front brakes give outstanding levels
of stopping power and rider feedback, while lightweight
wheels save unsprung weight and help the bike change
direction easily. The latest Pirelli SuperCorsa SP
tyres are derived from the world supersport championship
give both superb levels of grip and outstanding feedback.
But it is the outstanding attention
to detail that makes the Daytona 675 really stand
out. Touches like the magnesium cam cover, which contributes
to an overall dry weight of just 162kg, and sophisticated
engine management systems come straight from the race
track to benefit sporting road riders and track day
Triumph’s Daytona 675 is also
homologated for participating in FIM supersport events
and to help teams prepare their machines for competition,
Triumph’s Genuine Accessories division has developed
a range of race kit parts, including modified camshafts,
race ECU and wiring looms. Road riders are also well
for with a comprehensive range of styling and performance
parts that include the exquisite slip on exhaust developed
in collaboration with the Italian craftsmen at Arrow
Special Parts, the popular range of carbon fibre components
and Triumph’s innovative ‘plug-and-play’
quickshifter, which can be fitted in minutes.
The Daytona’s classically sleek looks are enhanced
by simple, single tone colours schemes of Phantom
Black and Tornado Red, both with black wheels, and
newfor- 2010 decals. A striking Caspian Blue option
with gold wheels is also available
for the first time on a Daytona 675.
The 2010 Daytona also features updated instrumentation,
which is both easier to use and aesthetically more
