Triumph Daytona 675

So, this is my Beautiful Triumph Daytona 675. As you can see it has the black and gold colour scheme, with a few carbon extras (front fender, rear fender, exhaust cover and passenger footrest blank plates). Additional extras on this bike are the arrow exhaust with no baffle and heated grips. Also I have only owned this bike for a short amount of time, roughly a month.

Reliability

Well since I’ve owned the bike I’ve had no issues. After speaking to some people who have owned this bike, I’ve only heard the good not the bad. So over the next couple of years I’ll soon be able to tell for myself.

Ride

The handling tied in with the power is the reason I sold my K2 GSX-R750 for this. The bike is so nimble, direct and loves to wheelie. That on the test ride I was sold. It offers so much response on the road, granted not as fast as the 750 in a straight line. But the Daytona makes up for it in every other way. If you haven’t ridden one, you need to.

Technology

The dash is very appealing on this bike. Sometimes your speedo can be hard to read when it's really sunny, but otherwise it's spot on with lap timer, fuel consumption, recommended shift light etc.

Cost

Not really much difference in price compared to your other sports bikes. However, I believe things may cost more than the Japanese bikes.

Negatives

Only negative for me.. Wrist pain, I’ve owned and ridden a fair share of bikes, the wrist pain on this is noticeable.

Summary

The Daytona is a great sports bike with amazing handling, power, sound and looks. If you are thinking of buying one. I’ll be taking this to Spain with my this year. I have every confidence it will keep me smiling!

Triumph Daytona 675 2010

2010 Triumph Daytona 675 purchased new to replace 2008 Kawasaki ZX6R. Had taken an initial test ride and first impressions were how light and narrow the Daytona was. Seat height was a slight issue as I am only 5ft 7in so was a bit more on tiptoes than the kwak. Owned bike for 18 months before trading up to 1000cc machine but here are my thoughts:

Engine - bike came with the optional Triumph TOR can. The noise is intoxicating. The triple has a distinctive sound combined with a high pitch whistle. Compared to the 4 cylinder 600cc supersport machines the torque is fantastic. Bike will pull in most gears from low revs. Want your ride out to be like a Moto GP race? The Daytona can handle it. Want the ride to be more of a nimble? The Daytona is happy to oblige. Only issue I suffered was at just over 1,100 miles. I noticed it had used quite a bit of oil. Dealer checked it out and engine had cracked a bore liner. It took Triumph 6 weeks to supply the part and it was only this quick because I personally wrote to John Bloor. However during this time the dealer was superb, loaning me a bike whenever I needed one.

Suspension & Handling - typically firm as most supersport bikes are. However bike would drop into a corner at the slightest request and hold a line with no problems at all. Came as standard with Pirelli Super Corsa tyres which gave great grip in dry but were concerning in the wet due to lack of tread. Probably more of a mental thing but roundabouts in the wet were taken with minimal lean.

Riding Position - very heavy on the wrists due to the higher rear end and low clip ons. Not unmanageable but not as comfy as the Kwak or Gixxer 600.

Overall - probably the best supersport for the road and certainly the best sounding. Rear seat pad big enough to attach a decent bag to for short trips away with only downside being the underseat can limiting other luggage options. Best of all its British and you do get the feeling that these bikes, although mass produced, are made with pride.
