These are the first official pictures of the Triumph Daytona 675R – a new high-spec version of Triumph’s award winning supersport bike.
The Daytona 675R is the first Triumph ever to be equipped with Ohlins suspension as standard – the forks and shock are both from the Swedish suspension masters. Top-spec Brembo brakes are fitted – four-piston radial-mount monobloc calipers and a radial master cylinder are standard.
Carbon mudguards are fitted, and the Daytona 675R is distinguished from the standard Daytona with a new white/black paint scheme, new Triumph logos and a new version of the Daytona stickers too. The red subframe is also unique to the Daytona 675R.
No specification is available at the moment – it is believed the engine is unchanged and the overall geometry is unaltered. Insiders claim pre-production bikes have been shown with a quick-shifter fitted.
Dealers are expecting it cost somewhere between £9000-9500 when Triumph finalises 2011 pricing. The standard Daytona 675 will continue alongside the 675R.
