New for 2011, Triumph presents the ultimate road and trackday bike: the Daytona 675R. Taking the already sublime Daytona 675 as its base, Triumph’s engineers worked in conjunction with Swedish suspension specialists Ohlins to create a machine that would really be appreciated on the circuit by expert riders.
Further track-spec items included as standard on the Daytona 675R include a standard-fit quickshifter and a host of carbon fibre bodywork, including hugger, silencer heat shield and front mudguard. The Daytona 675R also utilizes the Daytona 675fs comprehensive instrumentation, which includes a lap timer and programmable gear change lights.
Mechanically the Daytona 675R is identical to the standard Daytona 675, delivering 125PS at 12,600rpm with a class-leading 72Nm of torque making the Triumph engaging and flattering to ride quickly.
