stunning all-new Triumph Daytona 675's seeds were sown back
in 2000 when the idea of a middleweight triple sportsbike was
being bounced around the Triumph factory.
Triumph used engineering over styling to design the Daytona
675 and used a chopped and modified Daytona 600 to get the proportions
of the 675 exactly right, and to also gain essential feedback
from their test riders and engineers.
Interestingly the Daytona 675's initial style direction was
inspired by a sketch of a naked bike from someone on the chassis
engineering team, rather than an external styling consultancy.
The Daytona 675's aesthetic design then gradually evolved to
a fully faired bike with help from a Triumph-experienced external
designer working closely with Triumph to ensure the bike remained
The Daytona 675 uses a new 675cc 12v DOHC in-line-triple motor
developing 123 bhp @ 12,200 rpm and 53 lb.ft of torque
@ 11,750 rpm running though a close ratio 6-speed gearbox.
