Apex after apex the Daytona 675 inspires complete confidence. More power, lighter weight, and easier to ride, our engineers ambition was simple: to create the most perfectly balanced motorcycle. An equal blend of torque, responsiveness, agility, poise and purpose. The result is a bike with class-defining power, performance and handling. A bike that will inspire total confidence. And looks every bit as good.
The engine is brand new featuring twin injectors per cylinder, titanium valves, a 14,400 red line, and a spine tingling induction roar. It's faster on the track, better on the road and even more satisfying to own.
We enlarged the through-airflow headstock so that the intake mouth is positioned in the highest pressure zone centrally at the front of the bike. Improving flow efficiency, so that air passes in a straight line through the centre of the headstock to the airbox.
And when the air passes through the centre of the cockpit zone, it gives you even more of that distinctive three-cylinder intake snarl. And it's not just the volume of the sound that’s better, it's now there over a much wider range of revs for an even more focussed, involving ride than ever before.
We built the Daytona engine with a shorter stroke allowing us to set a 500rpm higher rev ceiling at 14,400 and we increased power to 128PS and maximum torque to 75Nm. The cylinder block is now cast separately from the upper crankcase to cope with higher pressures, more torque and more power.
So the new engine now gives you higher power for longer. Wringing even more performance out of the bike as well bringing more of the rider out of you
With twin injectors per cylinder the Daytona can draw more fuel quicker when you open the throttle fully and demand more from the engine.
A first for a production Triumph, we have now fitted substantially lighter titanium valves to cope better with the higher revs. This also means lighter valve springs can be used, reducing valve train wear and friction.
We also knew that the weight reduction was enough to give us the space to add some metal to the valves without compromising the valve train, so the top of the valve 'mushroom' heads were reshaped to improve gas flow around the valve and into the combustion chamber. This means better efficiency and a boost in torque at low and medium revs.
Front and rear KYB suspension is, of course, fully adjustable. Both front and rear suspension have the added advantage of separate low- and high-speed compression damping adjustment, making the Daytona as forgiving on the road as it is focused on the track.
Something as simple as reducing the weight of the wheels can have a dramatic effect on handling. Lighter wheels reduce unsprung mass and minimize the gyroscopic effect of a spinning wheel. This makes it easier to turn the bike in and hold a line through the corner. We’ve put race-derived Pirelli SuperCorsa tyres on to give you the grip to match the potential lean angles.
The new Daytona 675 is fitted with new, state-of-the-art KYB centre-fixed cartridge forks that use an internal damping cartridge which is rigidly located at both ends, rather than floating at one end as in conventional designs. Because it's supported by thinner walls, it has more room for the damping piston, so a larger diameter one can be used, improving damping accuracy.
By relocating the silencer to under the engine, rapid direction changes are now more fluid and more controlled. Rider input is rewarded with an incredibly controlled response.
Concentrating as much of the mass of the bike at the centre has increased the Daytona 675s agility and grip, so you can achieve higher lean angles through the corners. And you’ll find that the bike now responds even more readily to your input through the handlebars.
The new Daytona 675 frame is made from eight castings. That means fewer welds and a lighter construction with no loss of strength or stiffness for a more focussed ride.
We sharpened the geometry with a change in the rake from 23.9° to 22.9° and a reduction in trail from 89.1mm to 87.2mm. And now, the swingarm pivot position is adjustable so you can tailor the handling more precisely to your riding style and the conditions.
The 2013 Daytona's new rigid aluminium swingarm is designed asymmetrically to make room for the improved exhaust system. You can now even adjust its pivot and personalise the bike's geometry, fine-tuning it to suit your riding style and conditions.
Nissin radial callipers on the front, give amazing stopping power and confidence-inspiring feel through the lever. The rear Nissin calliper is lighter than before, helping to reduce the unsprung mass, which further improves handling and agility.
We have improved the riding position by raising it slightly and included a 10mm reduction in seat height. Still a focussed supersport riding stance designed to get the best out of you in track conditions.
