Triumph Daytona 675 year 2006


The Triumph Daytona 675's three cylinder engine is a masterpiece of compact simplicity and features a stacked gearbox, close ratio gearbox and high compression ratio of 12.6:1 – all of which adds up to giving the Triumph Daytona 675 a claimed 123bhp of throaty fun. The most impressive thing about the motorcycle is its broad spread of power and excellent fuelling system – a previous failing on some Hinckley sportbikes.


The Triumph Daytona 675's narrow chassis, featuring frame spars set atop of the motor, rather than along the sides of the cylinders, gives you the impression you could be riding a grey import 400cc class motorcycle. USD forks and a firm monoshock keep you focused on the delightful business of going fast aboard the 675, which is very easy to do. In a word, it is accomplished.


There’s a factory race exhaust and matching engine re-map kit available for the Triumph Daytona 675 and details like the classy instrument cluster make the motorcycle feel a cut above some other 600 sportsbikes. There is a pillion perch fitted, albeit a bit precarious, but one feature the Triumph Daytona 675 lacks is the fashionable slipper clutch.


The build quality looks excellent on the Triumph Daytona 675 and the gold and grey paint schemes seem to have gone down well with UK bikers, seeking an alternative to more garish colours. It will take a few years of sales to gauge if the Triumph Daytona 675 has a truly tough engineering DNA under its sleek fairing panels.
