Triumph Daytona 675
Very nice low km Daytona, Heated grips, comfort seat, LED indicators, billet levers and crash protection,
The Daytona 675 proved the Poms did know a thing or two about producing proper sports bikes for the road. I remember watching Gary McCoy at Phillip Island ride out of his skin on a 675cc triple, with the rasping exhaust note identifying it almost before you saw it.
And while it was a fantastic bike it was starting to look and perhaps feel a bit dated. Finally Triumph has seen the light and given us the biggest facelift in the models history for 2014.
Is it a better road bike? Yes. Is it a better track bike? Yes.
By changing almost everything on the bike Triumphs designers have been able to produce the impossible. Its better on the track because its got more power, its lighter, and the mass centralisation is lower. Its better on the road for those same reasons, but more importantly because its more comfortable.
Theres quite a few changes to the engine for 2013. Its more oversquare for starters, and this was aimed at producing more torque, and the wet liner set-up has been replaced by Nikasil lined bores. The camshafts now produce more valve lift, and the valves themselves are lighter. In fact Triumph says the valve train is 10 per cent lighter. Compression is up slightly too, to 13.1.
There are twin injectors per cylinder, larger big end bearings, bigger air intake, new selector design in the gearbox, a slipper clutch, and the one which really shows up, the low exhaust, getting rid of the underseat exhaust which was looking decidedly old hat. The more things change All up these improvements get the triple to 128 hp, which in reality will be around 16-19 hp at the back wheel.
