“The engine itself is an integral part of the overall design, with the stacked gearbox allowing for a very compact powerplant that contributes to one of the lightest and most balanced supersport bikes on the market,” the manufacturer says.
The fully-adjustable 41mm inverted front forks and rear monoshock unit both benefit from high and low speed damping control. In addition to that, radially-mounted Nissin monobloc calipers provide a high level of stopping power, while lightweight wheels keep unsprung mass down and contribute to an instant change in direction.
The 2011 Daytona 675 Triple comes in Phantom Black and Caspian Blue colors fitted with gold coloured wheels, while the new for 2011 Diablo Red comes with graphite colored rims. Accessories include carbon parts, Arrow slip on silencer, quickshifter and Ohlins rear suspension unit, as well as a race kit.
“Debuting the 675cc three-cylinder format in a sea of otherwise conformist 600cc fours, the Daytona 675 has garnered a cabinet full of awards and accolades since being first introduced for the 2006 model year, including two Masterbike titles and an undefeated three Supertest titles. The Triumph has also proved successful in supersport racing around the world, winning national championships around the world and finishing fourth in the 2010 Supersport World Championship in the hands of the ParkinGO BE1 Racing team’s Chaz Davies,” Triumph brags in a statement.
