As the first three-cylinder super sports middleweight, the Daytona 675 has become a force to be reckoned with in the most hotly contested arena in motorcycling. The 675 has gone from strength to strength, having won countless comparison tests and proudly wearing the crown as King of the Supersports bikes in both the Supertest and Masterbike international multi-magazine tests for two years running.

The gorgeous Daytona 675 is an exciting bike that owners will never tire of riding. The 675cc, liquid-cooled, three cylinder, 12-valve power unit is extremely compact, featuring a Keihin fuel injection system and a stacked six-speed close ratio gearbox. Peak power of 125PS (123bhp) is delivered at 12,500rpm, with 72Nm (53ft.lbf) torque at 11,750rpm.

The standard exhaust features an efficient underseat end-can and uses a secondary valve to boost low down torque. The 675cc engine meets fully the stringent Euro-3 emission regulations and, while the engine is refined, the triple’s innate character remains with typical Triumph toughness engineered all the way through.

The Daytona 675’s aluminium frame is fabricated with open-back cast spars which wrap over the top of the motor, accentuating the benefits of the narrow three-cylinder design.

Rake is set at 23.9°, trail at 89.1mm with a wheelbase of 1,395mm. Dry weight is 165kg (363lbs).

Top quality, fully adjustable Kayaba 41mm upside down forks and a fully adjustable piggyback reservoir rear shock take care of the suspension. The sports focused riding position of the Daytona 675 comprises of a firmly padded narrow seat for maximum feedback, low set clip-on handlebars and high rearset footpegs.

A radial master cylinder and twin radial four-piston calipers work on the front floating 308mm discs, matched by a 220mm rear disc and single piston caliper. The wheels are a lightweight five-spoke design with dimensions of 17 x 3.5in (front) and 17 x 5.5in (rear) and they wear the super sticky Pirelli Super Corsa road/track compound tyres. Front tyre size is 120/70 ZR17, the rear is 180/55 ZR17.

The Daytona 675’s digital instrument console has all 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 perfect point at which to change up, for optimum 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 stylish twin projector beam front headlights have been updated for 2008 and now use new-style lenses in the projectors, changing the light distribution to give an excellent spread of light. Seat height is 825mm, fuel capacity is 17.4 litres (3.8 gal).

Colour options for the Daytona 675 are Jet Black and Neon Blue, both new for 2008, which arrive alongside the popular Tornado Red option. Also new for 2008 are the bigger, bolder decals adorning the bodywork. A full range of official Triumph accessories are available for the Daytona 675, including a carbon fibre front mudguard, infills, heel guards and a silencer cover. A free flowing Triumph exhaust can is also available (for circuit use only) and Arrow, the racing specialists, have produced a full Titanium system (available through Triumph dealers) that saves over 6kg in weight and adds 5PS, again for circuit use only.

The Daytona 675 has taken the motorcycling world by storm since its launch, redrawing the super sports middleweight map thanks to its exciting, powerful engine and intuitive, razor sharp chassis. Sitting firmly within a class of one, the 675 delivers incredible performance and has truly earned the praise heaped on it by some of the toughest critics in the motorcycle press.
