its the Daytona 675

  • 123 hp (crank) @12,2000 rpm
  • 363 lbs (dry)

Quote:
One of the most eagerly awaited bikes of 2006, the triple-cylinder Daytona 675 Triple in one single stroke redefines just how a middleweight sports bike should perform, packing as it does a large amount of power and torque into a small, nimble package.


The first three-cylinder middleweight, the Daytona 675 stands apart immediately with its inimitable, spine-tingling sound and feel. Integral to this is the triple’s inherent advantage of masses of bottom-end torque, linked to a heavy mid-range punch that’s topped with a searing burst of peak power.


The strong, torquey three-cylinder, 12-valve unit is extremely compact and narrow, contributing to the overall slimness of the bike, and features a stacked, close ratio, six-speed gearbox, Keihin closed-loop fuel-injection system and a free-flowing exhaust with an underseat silencer.


Designed around the Daytona 675’s engine the spars of the fabricated, open-back, aluminium cast frame wrap over the top of the motor, accentuating further the benefits of the narrow three-cylinder design. The USD front forks and piggy-back rear are fully adjustable for spring preload and rebound and compression damping. The front brakes use a radial master cylinder as well as twin radial four-piston calipers, while the new wheels are a lightweight five-spoke design.


With the Daytona 675 Triumph aimed to create an exciting bike that owners will never tire of owning and, above all else, riding. It sits within a class of one, delivering an incredible performance with its exciting, powerful engine and intuitive, razor-sharp chassis. It also looks and sounds like nothing else. All quite deliberate and driven by a single, solitary word that underpinned the whole concept; ‘incomparable’.


Not many motorcycles are genuinely mould-breaking but the Daytona 675 Triple is definitely one of them.

I look down on triumph a little. Their parts are hard to find in OEM and aftermarket and they are very expensive once you do find them. Also after riding gtowntt 's TT600 it wasn't all that and I smoked it with my SV. This bike does look sweet, and I've always liked the style of the Daytona series.

Triumph isnt near the size of the japanese so parts are hard to come by fo sho. triumph dealers are even harder to come by. But the TT600 was a F4 copy in everything but the maping. Triumph has returned to what they do best..... TRIPLES!!!!!! last i checked, Triumph did demo rides so i will try em out. I think i saw a pic of one in black, i'll look around some more.

To compete in the same class, different engine configs get diffrent rules. Like the ducati 749 always mixing it up with pure 600's. Triumph is following the rules and may have found something. i havent found any retail yet (not even on UK boards) but im sure its out there.

Very kick ass bike indeed. Damn I love Triumphs, I have said before if the deal I was gonna get on a speed triple wouldn't have been so crappy then I would be on that instead of my VTR..


Here is another good write up for it, along with some more pics:
