Motorcycle insurance bargains: Triumph 675

1 of 3

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Triumph Daytona 675

Insurance group: 15
New price: from £7,589
Engine: 675cc 12v in line triple, 6 gears
Power: 123bhp
Top speed: 160mph
Weight: 165kg     

Not only was the Triumph 675 MCN's sportsbike of the year 2009, it's also one of the cheapest to insure at group 15. That's a group lower than the Yamaha R6, Kawasaki ZX-6R and Honda CBR600RR. 

The Triumph Daytona 675's three cylinder engine is a masterpiece, with a claimed 123bhp of throaty fun. The most impressive thing about the motorcycle is its broad spread of power and excellent fuelling system.

The Triumph 675's narrow chassis gives you the impression you could be riding a 400. USD forks and a firm monoshock keep you focused on the delightful business of going fast aboard the 675, which is very easy to do. In a word, it is accomplished.

The 675 really is a beauty on road or track and the engine is exquisite and hard-working. As a result, be sure to check the oil regularly.
