Its 675 cc, water-cooled three-cylinder 12-valve power unit is extremely compact and features Keihin closed-loop fuel injection and stacked six-speed close ratio gearbox. Peak power of 123 bhp is delivered at 12,500 rpm, with 53 ft. lbs. of torque at 11,750 rpm. The standard exhaust features an efficient underseat end-can and also utilizes a secondary valve to boost torque low down. While the Daytona 675’s engine is refined, the triple’s innate character remains with typical Triumph toughness engineered into every part.
The Daytona 675’s aluminum frame is fabricated with open-back cast spars, which wrap over the top of the motor, accentuating further the benefits of the narrow three-cylinder design. Suspension is provided by top quality fully adjustable 41 mm upside down forks and piggyback reservoir rear shock, also fully adjustable. A radial master cylinder and twin radial four-piston calipers work on the front fully floating 308 mm discs, which are matched by a 220 mm rear disc and single piston caliper. The wheels are a lightweight five-spoke design with dimensions of 17 x 3.5 inch (front) and 17 x 5.5 inch (rear) and wear super sticky Pirelli Super Corsa road/track compound tires. The Daytona 675’s digital instrument console has the usual trip functions as well as displaying average fuel economy. Also featured is a sophisticated lap timer – useful for comparing successive lap times on a circuit as well as average and maximum speed for each lap.
A programmable gear change indicator illuminates seven LEDs to let you know the optimum point at which to change up, for maximum performance: You can program in both the engine speed and the illumination sequence. The LCD panel also tells you which gear you are in at all times.
The Daytona 675 sits firmly within a class of one and delivers incredible performance with its exciting, powerful engine and intuitive, razor-sharp chassis. It looks, sounds and feels like nothing else. It has redrawn the super sports middleweight map and truly earned the praise heaped upon it by some of the toughest critics in the motorcycle press.
