Triumph Daytona 675R first ride: 'The most exciting middleweight'

The Triumph Daytona 675R is simply a Daytona 675 with lots of very desirable goodies to make it a track day weapon and, in the right hands, a formidable tool on the road. The 675R boasts three major add-ons. First, white paint and red powder-coated subframe. Second, front and rear suspension from Ohlins. Third, Brembo race-spec monobloc calipers and master cylinder. Here's...

Triumph should be worried by the approaching MV F3! Time for a new sexier Daytona?....I think so.

LESS THAN 1 PER CENT

A deadly track day weapon and and a formidable tool in the right hands on the road, I guess that rules out 99.9 per cent of us then. Ciao

675 R....RIGHT!!!

I'll say this again but this is the bike Triumph,should have produced when this 675 version first appeared a few years back.

The bike looks a million dollars,Brembo,Ohlins,red frame,White body work,etc.However,i would have thought triumph would have fitted Termignoni's and lighter magnesium wheels?:huh:

As usual,the bike will cost more than the standard,in fact,there's nowt much wrong with the standard 675,but this bike has an EXOTIC look,and should still be competitive alongisde the Ducati and M.V......:unsure:.

I hope,Triumph don't statrt to go down the road the old British bike industry did,in opting to choose themselves what, THEY THINK is APPROPRIATE for the road users and not the road users themselves, as this was the death knell for the bike industry in this country.:ph43r:

Listen to what the buyers want and look at the trends going on round about,because its v.easy to slip the net and get left behind, very quickly, in this world today.

Major?

Eh? A lick of paint is a major add on? WTF. Did the previous 675 not come painted?

I am a die-hard Triumph fan.I love my Street to bits. Also,I am considering buying the Speed 2011 when I come into some cash (this is NOT a hypothetical - one of life's tricks will bring me some cash after a separation). HOWEVER, "the most exciting middleweight" I would have to say is a tall order. Given the chance,I would certainly go for the MV Agusta F3. In the presentation videoI was trying to watch the eye-candy with long dark hair. But, I couldn't take my line of sight away from the bike. It is sparkling, explosive sex with two wheels. The DaytonaR is basically the Dayto with some luxury add-ons.
