The new Triumph Daytona 600
Now the hype is made metal. The stunning Triumph Daytona 600, exclusively revealed by MCN in April, has just had its public unveiling at the NEC Show. In the latest issue of MCN, out November 20, we assess Triumph’s serious 600.
Triumph has high hopes for the new machine, coming on the back of its less than stellar reception of the TT600 and the fire that swept its factory in March. But first impressions are good – it looks great and if our exclusive spy video is anything to go by it looks set to storm the sales charts, too.
