The startling Daytona 650 displayed in these photos is entirely unblemished and just about as good as new, showing 756 miles (1,217 km) on its six-digit odometer. Under current ownership, this sporty predator was fitted with modern fork seals and boots, as well as a replacement battery, a new fuel pump, and fresh fluids all-round.
Within the confines of its stunning bodywork, Triumph’s titan houses a liquid-cooled 646cc inline-four engine that’s linked to a six-speed transmission. The fuel-injected powerplant boasts dual overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, and a sizeable compression ratio of 12.85:1.
By producing up to 114 hp at 12,500 rpm and 50 pound-feet (68 Nm) of torque at 11,500 whirls, this bad boy can push the 650 to a top speed of 156 mph (251 kph). There’s an aluminum twin-spar frame holding everything in place, while front-end suspension duties are handled by 43 mm (1.7-inch) forks with preload, rebound, and compression settings.
A single shock absorber can be found at the opposite pole, and it, too, is fully adjustable for maximized efficiency. Braking duties are the responsibility of dual 308 mm (12.1-inch) floating discs and four-piston calipers up north, along with a 220 mm (8.7-inch) rotor and a single-piston caliper down south.
You may bid for a chance to snatch this mint-condition Daytona on Iconic Motorbike Auctions, where it will remain listed until the afternoon of November 18! A mere four grand would be enough to put you in the lead, but the chances of meeting the reserve with that amount are practically non-existent. If you’re feeling more generous, be sure to act sooner rather than later.
