'08 675

http://triumph.co.uk/usa/Daytona%20675_5340.aspx

For 2008, Triumph is offering a Special Edition version of the awesome Daytona 675. This model features a sultry Phantom Black paint scheme offset stunningly by gold finished wheels and gold colored decals. Completing the picture for a sleek overall look are black engine covers.



that color combo looks awesome.

Very nice looking bike but I'm a little disappointed at the performance numbers.

How? Torque is solid. HP isn't bad. Plenty of power.

Hp is down around 112, I would expect a 675 to be up close to a 120-125 range. And the torque is below 60, 54 iirc.

My 05' ZX6R (636) only puts down 110 hp and 48 ft lbs torque. The 3 cyl. 675 can rock with those figures (it has more torque). That is one sweet machine!

I just rechecked the figures. The 675 puts down 104hp and 49 ft/lbs and is 390lbs dry. Not that impressive if you ask me, but the bike is sweet looking.

QUE???


The 675 is no joke dude. My 675 EASILY hangs with my 1050 Speed Triple and can smoke my Aprilia. It's one wicked bike. I put a Two Brothers VALE M5 carbon fiber full system on mine, changed the velocity stacks, BMC filter, Tune Boy custom mapped it and I'm getting 123 HP out of mine. The thing pulls like a freight train and the engine spins up so fast it's scary.
