Triumph Daytona 675R first ride!

Triumph’s all-new Daytona 675R supersports is being put through its paces in a world first test by MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves. These are his first impressions: “We’re at the Cartagena circuit in southern Spain testing the new Triumph Daytona 675R. “It’s brand new from the ground up, with a heavily-revised short-stroke engine making more power, torque and revs. It has...

what about the ride

What we need to know is, is that an achievable top speed (see MCN) as the Triumph has no real wind protection would I be able to ride at motorway overtaking speed without having a neck and shoulders like the Hulk. I like the idea of the triple but wet weather riding is never talked about when reviewing these little rockets.

Burnthouse, if you need to ride on the motorway and in the wet on a regular basis. this isn't going to be the bike for you!

Nice

Love what theyve done with the look, kind of blend of some other great bikes in there.  Im sure its great fun, if only Triumph would bring out an 1100cc superbike version I would buy British......  and no I dont think 675 cc is adequate enough! haha.

Can't agree there Diablere. I use my GSXR750 in the rain and on motorways as well as on A roads, B roads and track days so evaluation under motorway and wet conditions are definitely relevant to those of us who have one bike for everything.

I ride a sports bike as it suits my riding these days and i have a car to cover the boring stuff, if i needed to do everything on one bike then i'd either accept the compromises or look for a more versatile bike.

when they had the first ride on the Triumph trophy i wasn't asking what it was going to be like round Brands Hatch, cause i can kinda guess.

Brutal:

It is a British bike mate, come on, give MCN a break in showing some enthusiasm for a bit of home-made kit.  Assuming this one wasn't built in Thailand or some other low-wage, sweatshop-friendly country.

@ burnthouse

Sportbikes are better at speed, since the wind force takes some of the weight off needing to be supported by the rider's arms.  But the same hunched forward riding position makes them lousy around town.
