Review

Cycle World

Lives on the road but was born for the track. The Triumph Daytona 675 and 675R supersports motorcycles are precision instruments that feed every bit of rider information directly to you whilst simultaneously responding to your every input.

So that, when you ride a Daytona 675, you plug directly in to become part of a performance machine that is unbeatable for usability and pure engagement on the road or track...

In the Daytona 675R, we’ve made exceptional the new standard. This is a true track day tool. Focused. Committed. Taking our experience gained on track and road with the outgoing bike and combining the latest developments in engineering technology and thinking, we’re giving you an even faster, better handling, easier riding bike. The result is a bike which is 1kg (2.2lb) lighter than the old model with a new triple motor that delivers even more power all the way through to 14,400 rpm redline. The new frame geometry, mass centralisation and race-derived Öhlins suspension enables razor sharp handling and confidence-inspiring feedback. Add Brembo brakes, a quickshifter, carbon trim and some subtle styling details and you know you’re riding a true thoroughbred motorcycle

Key Features
The R spec takes an already impressive package to the next level increasing its performance focus further, as well as sporting a unique look. It's the bike that propelled Danny Eslick to a historic victory at the 2014 Daytona 200 and carried Gary Johnson to a TT win at the Isle of Man in June 2014.
- Öhlins TTX rear suspension and NIX30 inverted forks offer full suspension adjustability.
- Brembo Monobloc calipers offer precise powerful stopping
- Triumph quick-shifter as standard blends gears and improves acceleration
- Carbon fibre cockpit infill panels, red rear subframe and red wheel pinstripes complete the refined R look.

Engine
With twin injectors per cylinder the new Daytona can draw more fuel quicker when you open the throttle fully and demand more from the engine.

A first for a production Triumph, we have now fitted substantially lighter titanium valves to cope better with the higher revs. This also means lighter valve springs can be used, reducing valve train wear and friction.

We also knew that the weight reduction was enough to give us the space to add some metal to the valves without compromising the valve train, so the top of the valve 'mushroom' heads were reshaped to improve gas flow around the valve and into the combustion chamber. This means better efficiency and a boost in torque at low and medium revs.

Performance
We built the new Daytona engine with a shorter stroke allowing us to set a 500rpm higher rev ceiling at 14,400 and we increased power to 128PS and maximum torque to 75Nm. The cylinder block is now cast separately from the upper crankcase to cope with higher pressures, more torque and more power.

So the new engine now gives you higher power for longer. Bringing even more performance out of the bike as well as bringing more of the rider out of you

Sound
We enlarged the through-airflow headstock so that the intake mouth is positioned in the highest pressure zone centrally at the front of the bike. Improving flow efficiency, so that air passes in a straight line through the centre of the headstock to the airbox.

And when the air passes through the centre of the cockpit zone, it gives you even more of that distinctive three-cylinder intake snarl. And it's not just the volume of the sound that’s better, it's now there over a much wider range of revs for an even more focussed, involving ride than ever before.

Suspension
Front and rear KYB suspension is, of course, fully adjustable. Both front and rear suspension have the added advantage of separate low- and high-speed compression damping adjustment, making the Daytona as forgiving on the road as it is focused on the track.

Wheels and Tyres
Something as simple as reducing the weight of the wheels can have a dramatic effect on handling. Lighter wheels reduce unsprung mass and minimize the gyroscopic effect of a spinning wheel. This makes it easier to turn the bike in and hold a line through the corner. We’ve put race-derived Pirelli SuperCorsa tyres on to give you the grip to match the potential lean angles.

Front Forks
The new Daytona 675 is fitted with new, state-of-the-art KYB centre-fixed cartridge forks that use an internal damping cartridge which is rigidly located at both ends, rather than floating at one end as in conventional designs. Because it's supported by thinner walls, it has more room for the damping piston, so a larger diameter one can be used, improving damping accuracy.

Mass Centralisation
By relocating the silencer to under the engine, rapid direction changes are now more fluid and more controlled. Rider input is rewarded with an incredibly controlled response.

Concentrating as much of the mass of the bike at the centre has increased the Daytona 675's agility and grip, so you can achieve higher lean angles through the corners. And you’ll find that the bike now responds even more readily to your input through the handlebars.

Frame
The new Daytona 675 frame is made from eight castings. That means fewer welds and a lighter construction with no loss of strength or stiffness for a more focussed ride.

We sharpened the geometry with a change in the rake from 23.9° to 22.9° and a reduction in trail from 89.1mm to 87.2mm. And now, the swingarm pivot position is adjustable so you can tailor the handling more precisely to your riding style and the conditions.

Swingarm
The 2013 Daytona's new rigid aluminium swingarm is designed asymmetrically to make room for the improved exhaust system. You can still adjust its pivot and personalise the bike's geometry, fine-tuning it to suit your riding style and conditions.

Brakes
We fitted the 675R with the latest Brembo Monobloc front brake callipers in place of the standard bike's Nissin units as they are especially resistant to heat fade. Being machined from single blocks of aluminium rather than two sections bolted together, you also get increased strength and reduced distortion under the extreme pressures of heavy braking as experienced in track use - which in turn improves feel and feedback to you, the rider.

Steering Damper

The Daytona 675R is fitted with new, state-of-the-art KYB centre-fixed cartridge forks that use an internal damping cartridge which is rigidly located at both ends, rather than floating at one end as in conventional designs. Because it's supported by thinner walls, it has more room for the damping piston, so a larger diameter one can be used, improving damping accuracy.

Riding Position
We have improved the 675Rs riding position by raising the bars slightly but with a 10mm reduction in seat height. Every bit a focussed supersport riding stance, designed to get the best out of you in track conditions.

Details

High-spec carbon fibre cockpit infills and front mudguard - light and strong. At the rear, a styled hugger sits neatly on the swingarm. Looks fantastic and keeps the dirt off your Öhlins suspension

Equipment and Technology

Switchable ABS

ABS The very latest switchable ABS system is fitted, weighing just 1.5kg (3.3lb) and having a track setting which allows rear wheel drift. The system allows more aggressive braking in good conditions meaning that ABS will only activate when crossing wet surfaces or the side of the track. It works so well that, on a perfect track day, you won’t even notice it.

Slip-Assist Clutch
The new clutch design increases the friction so that lighter springs are needed. This reduces the effort needed at the clutch lever, making life easier for you around the track.

Quickshifter

Get the real race feel with clutchless gear changes without even having to back off the throttle, maximising acceleration

Instruments-Computer
Instruments feature a lap timer, two trip computers, gear change indicators, shift lights, clock, and can be configured to show tyre pressures (where optional Tyre Pressure Monitoring System is fitted) and ABS switching. So you know more of what’s going on as you ride.

Programmable Rev Lights
Programmable gear change indicators let you manually set up where in the rev range you want the lights to come on and prompt a gear change.

Removable Number Plate and Indicators
You can remove the already slender number plate and rear indicator mounting quickly for track day use.

Optional TPMS
Especially on a bike as track-focussed as the Daytona 675R, a change tyre pressure can alter handling dramatically. Our Tyre Pressure Monitoring System will let you know any change in pressure before it becomes an issue.

Immobiliser
To protect your Daytona from the wrong kind of attention, we’ve added a high technology security system. It detects a microchip in the key body and if it's not present the ignition system is disabled. This prevents a copy of the correct key being used to switch the bike on.
