New MCN double issue December 19: Triumph Daytona 675R first ride

In this week's five-in-one Christmas double issue of MCN, out December 19, we have the first test of the new Triumph Daytona 675R. In 2006 the Daytona 675 really shook up the supersport class. Can it do the same again? We also test the new 'Skyhook' Ducati Multistrada against the 2012 model, to see if semi-active suspension really does make a...

I'm not sure whether MCN is biased towards Triumph, I have read some or most of their articles on various models and some are critical. Because a bike is good and British is no bad thing and if you read other reports from various other bike mags both here and abroad on their (Triumph) newest models they are all very good. Sales tell the tale and it appears MCN have every right to shout about the Models with the 675 at their heart cause they look and appear to be the business.

Triumph

Triumph's 675 triples, are considered the best in class across all mags and also in the USA bike press, and rightly so, for the most part they are cheaper, lighter, faster, better handling, better sounding, and much much cooler, due to the Triumph name on the tank, than Japanese fours, some people seem to have very sour grapes about this which is a pity....

Triumph

@BREE, you should be proud of the fact that a British company can actually produce a bike that's class leading with so much competition out there. Despite what MCN says Triumph are making some cracking machines considering the mark was only reborn 20 yrs ago to be able to build bikes that can compete with the Japanese is a remarkable achievement in my book!

Fact free Bree !!!

Oh dear ,it didn't take long for another one of the anti-Brit brigade to come out of their fact free,reality free corner did it ? As stated already by some of the better informed and knowledgeable contributors,the Triumph 675 models of all types,regularly get rave reviews from everywhere,whether it be the USA,Japan,Germany,Italy ,France,Australia and so on..but that's not good enough for Bree it appears..he knows that all these countries journalists are in the pay of Triumph and MCN is just one part of the conspiracy...that must be the case,otherwise it would mean that Bree was wrong !!!! no it couldn't be..surely not? Bree obviously was wilfully blind when MCN gave a poor review of the newest 1200 Trophy.just a few weeks ago,criticising its handling.switches,clocks etc.etc.The new Daytona,another great new British bike,good for bikers,good for jobs and national pride in British engineering,shame some people can't get past their prejudice against Triumph and perhaps MCN too.

Hi Mark, the paper is twice as big as normal with more than twice the editorial. That has accompanying costs for us which we partially cover with a one-off price rise. We hope a rise of 1/3 for an increase in what you get to read of over +100% is good value. The calendar IS free. Have a look at it in the shop at least – we really believe it's the best Xmas double we've ever done. If you think it's not worth the price of a pint don't buy it. But give it a chance! Cheers, Guy

Actually an increase from £2 per copy to £3 represents an increase of 50% - the additional £1 being 50% of the original £2. However, with the x2 size increase and the inclusion of a calender, I'm sure the special issue represents good value for money.

I also second the comments of 955nsim and Trevster that its great to see Triumph, a British company, producing world class motorcycles and in the case of the Daytona 675R a class leading motorcycle. Now if they would just make a 360 degree cranked Bonneville, with loud pipes, upside down forks, twin disc front brake, bored and stroked to say 1100cc and tuned to produce 100bhp, that would be just dandy and I'd buy another of their bikes.

I got stung again! I told my wife last year that I would not buy the Christmas edition again due to the massive, and unannounced price hike. I buy it every week but do resent paying £3.00, a 50.25% increase. I dont buy into what Guy is saying as MCN editions slim down in winter due to no racing etc so its no bigger than a summer edition at the peak of the racing season at £1.99.  


f they were to prominently pre warn us about the increase fair enough, maybe? Can you imagine the outrage if they increased the price of your daily rag by 50% because it included a Christmas TV guide? no I guessed not and you would not put up with it. In short, a rip off with a calender to sweeten the pill.
