TRIUMPH DAYTONA 675R

- Unique Daytona 675R graphics and livery
- Factory-fit quickshifter and Brembo brakes
- 125PS, 72Nm, three-cylinder engine from award-winning Daytona 675

Triumph presents the ultimate road and trackday supersport machine: the Daytona 675R.

Taking the already sublime Daytona 675 as its base, Triumph’s engineers worked in conjunction with Swedish suspension specialists Öhlins to create a machine that can really be appreciated on the circuit by expert riders. Öhlins contributed its revolutionary 43mm NIX30 forks, usually only found on the racetrack or ultra-exotic Italian machines, and its MotoGP developed TTX36 rear
suspension unit, while radially-mounted monoblock calipers and radial master cylinder from Italian specialist Brembo were specified to ensure the Daytona 675R also has class-leading stopping power.

Further track-spec items included as standard on the Daytona 675R include a standard-fit quickshifter and a host of carbon fibre bodywork, including hugger, silencer heat shield and front mudguard. The Daytona 675R also utilizes the Daytona 675’s comprehensive instrumentation, which includes a lap timer and programmable gear change lights.

 

Mechanically the Daytona 675R is identical to the standard Daytona 675, delivering 125PS at 12,600rpm with a class-leading 72Nm of torque making the Triumph engaging and flattering to ride quickly.

Visually, the iconic gold Öhlins suspension units make the Daytona 675R stand out from the pack. Sporty new graphics include a unique Triumph tank script, while the special colour scheme further confirms the Daytona 675R’s premium status. The sparkling Crystal White bodywork is contrasted with a race style black belly pan and distinctive red subframe.

A range of official Triumph accessories are available for the Daytona 675R, including an Arrow slip on silencer, race style CNC machined levers and single seat cowl.

Triumph Daytona 675R Features and Benefits

Designed to compete in the Supersport World Championship, the Daytona 675 comes dripping with racetrack technology straight out of the crate.

With a lightweight and narrow chassis, fully-adjustable front and rear suspension the Daytona 675 is composed on all surfaces, while top of the range brakes deliver eye popping stopping power.

The cycle parts are all of the highest level. Öhlins 43mm NIX30 forks and TTX36 rear shock come are developed from the white-hot heat of MotoGP competition, while the Brembo four-piston radial monoblock calipers offer mindblowing levels of stopping power and feel.

The comprehensive instrumentation includes a programmable gear change indicator, gear indicator and built in lap timer as standard, while a host of performance orientated accessories include a plug and play quickshifter, performance exhausts and even a full factory race kit.

Sharp New Looks

MCN Review
Triumph has labeled the 675R as a track day weapon/fast road riding tool, and MCN can’t argue with this. The stiff Ohlins suspension and lithesome, agile nature of the 675R chassis gives the impression it is a sorted race bike. Couple this with impressive midrange from of the triple-cylinder engine and you have a bike that allows devastating corner speed at the track. Although for the road the suspension as standard is bloody hard and necessitates softening off. Simple touches of a red subframe, carbon front mudguard and fairing infill panels make the 675R special and instantly recognisable. Nice one, Triumph. Now can we have a 1000cc version, please.

Engine
It is the same powerplant as the standard Daytona 675. Forget about peak power – although 115bhp at the wheel is not to be sneezed at – it’s the legendary flat but fat torque curve coupled with a midrange horsepower that makes the Daytona a breeze to ride day-in, day out without working up a sweat.
If you want to rip it up then the 675R will easily pump your adrenaline – especially on a trackday – simply by working the throttle harder. Something done very easily because the fitment of a plug and play quickshifter means it’s a case of simply opening and closing the throttle and foot tapping the gear lever.

 

Ride and Handling
Again, exactly the same as the Daytona 675 and is pure supersport. The seat’s high and has low-set clip-on bars but isn’t uncomfortable, just intimidating at first. The ride is exemplary on track thanks to the Ohlins fully adjustable front forks and TTX36 rear shock. Both systems make the gap between road and track use easier to cross by being fully adjustable. Because of its track-bias, the firm set up can cause the bars to occasionally waggle. While this is not a problem for the steering damper to take control, it would have been good if Triumph had kitted the 675R with a fully adjustable unit to make the ‘R’ transformation complete.
