Triumph Daytona 675R Review

Triumph revamped its Daytona 675 models to keep up with rising middleweight releases from rivals, with additional umph on the made-over looks and high-revving engine.  The improvements put Triumph Daytona 675R a step ahead in the motorcycle industry for a number of reasons.

With the horsepower 2 notches up, it peaks at 12,600 RPM.  It’s all due to the boastful triple engine with a solid aluminium cylinder block complete with ceramic coating.  It’s a totally fortified ride with titanium valves that not so many motorcycles are built with.  Triumph amazingly captures durability and power yet maintains compact ability and narrow packaging.  With a larger bore and shorter stroke to reach 14,400rpm, the responsive engine gives the rider that security for an exciting speed run.

The airflow is meticulously studied and applied to the overall design for speed efficiency.  Air is utilized and channeled through the headstock, giving the engine more running power.  It’s not that the engine needs help because it’s already good on its own. It operates with twin injectors per cylinder in a compact accurate fuel booster.  The fuel map for the 17.4-liter engine was revised for sequential injection accuracy and to improve torque for all rev ranges.  It also created lower fuel consumption through the re-design process which is at 55.5 mpg or 5.1 liters per 100 km for urban riding.

It’s not just comfort that adds to the riding experience but the smooth hum of the engine.  The weight is centralised for handling stability, while the silencer had been relocated closer to the engine.  With the silencer under the engine, Triumph was able to add fluidity and sound containment during rapid direction changes.   No more throttling when speeding up or cruising down with the clutchless six-speed gear of the Daytona 675R.  What’s more, this speed machine is attached with race pedigree Ohlins suspensions with TTX rear shocks and NIX30 inverted forks.   The quick shifting capability and the Ohlins suspensions simply generate the race atmosphere and makes riding even more enticing.

Five-spoke cast aluminum alloy wheels run this sleek racing toy, with twin 310mm floating disc brakes, 43mm upside-down adjustable preload suspension, and four-piston Brembo radial mono-block calipers at the front wheels; while the rear compliments it with twin-tube mono shock piggy-back suspension and single 220mm disc brakes and single piston Brembo calipers.  The smooth racing sophistication can be experienced at a price of $13,499.
