2011 Triumph Daytona 675 SE


The best supersport bike in the world or a class of its own? Designed for the racetrack, to compete with the best in the supersport class, Triumph’s Daytona 675 is the bike to beat on both road and track.

Winner of the 2009 Supertest ‘King of Supersports’ award (for the fourth time, no less) and MCN’s Sportsbike of the Year, the Daytona 675 delivers a killer blow with its combination of outstanding handling and a storming three-cylinder engine.

With the lightest and narrowest chassis in the class, the Daytona 675 delivers outstandingly agile and intuitive handling. Fully adjustable suspension front and rear, with separate adjustment for high and low speed compression damping, gives the Daytona 675 superb composure on all surfaces, while top-of-the-range monobloc radial brake calipers up front deliver eye popping stopping power.

But it is the engine that makes the Daytona 675 stand apart from the competition. With 126ps and more torque than the competition, the 675cc triple offers an exhilarating ride for novice and experienced riders alike. With its unique and wicked three-cylinder howl, the Daytona 675 delivers an unadulterated experience like no other sportsbike.

Updates for 2011 include new instruments, decals and a new Dayona 675SE option.




Triumph is offering customers across North America the opportunity to own a truly unique factory sport bike with the Daytona 675 Special Edition. The limited edition model takes the award-winning Daytona 675 and covers its body panels, tank and fenders in a stunning new Pearl White while the frame, swing arm and subframe receive a distinctive Sparkle Blue paint. -


Introducing the Triumph Daytona 675 SE, a stunning special edition of the award winning supersport machine that really stands out from the crowd.

Triumph is offering customers across North America the opportunity to own a truly unique factory sport bike with the Daytona 675 Special Edition. The limited edition model takes the award-winning Daytona 675 and covers its body panels, tank and fenders in a stunning new Pearl White while the frame, swing arm and subframe receive a distinctive Sparkle Blue paint.

"The Daytona 675 has received exceptional reviews for its performance and styling," said Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles. "Now, Triumph has taken the bike's styling a step further with this incredible new color scheme. You absolutely have to see the Daytona 675 Special Edition in person to appreciate the way sunlight makes this bike shine."
The Daytona 675 SE is mechanically identical to the standard 2009 Daytona 675, which has received praises worldwide by winning several road and track-based tests against its competitors.

The race-bred machine utilizes a 126bhp three-cylinder engine and the very latest chassis technology, including a highly sophisticated and adjustable front and rear suspension. Riders can adjust both high and low speed compression damping to obtain unparalleled levels of control that are suited to both spirited street and track riding as well as compliance for rough road surfaces. New radial-mount Nissin monobloc front brakes give tremendous stopping power while the latest Pirelli SuperCorsa SP tires give outstanding levels of grip and feedback.

A full range of genuine accessories and factory race parts also are available for the Daytona 675 SE, giving owners an opportunity to personalize both the looks and performance of their machine. Track day enthusiasts will find a number of accessories that include lightweight carbon fiber parts and a 'plug-and-play' quickshifter as well as race-style rear set footrests and a racing inspired exhaust that were developed with Italian racing specialist Arrow Special Parts.

Similarly, Triumph's association with Alpinestars technical riding apparel has resulted in a range of performance jackets, pants, gloves and boots that are designed for male and female Daytona 675 riders.

Fail.

A most blatant and shameless copy of the '03-'06 Honda CBR600RR with some newer CBR influence and Yamaha R6 elements thrown in. From a company that came out with a design as innovative as the Speed Triple (yes that was a copy too, from the riders in Britain who created streetfighters out of crashed Suzuki GSX-Rs but it took quite a vision and guts to put someting like that into production).

I see that the new Triumph Tiger is a blatant shameles copy of the BMW as well! You can't even tell them apart at first glance. I do not like the direction the design department of this company is going. Not only are they blatantly copying other manufacturers, they ruined the Speed Triple's iconic headlights. :(

You make some very good (and debateable) points! I almost fell off my chair when I read "fail" as I didn't expect that in the voting at all... but fair enough points for saying so.

I think a lot of bikes are slight copies of each other today, it's hard to product a completely unique bikes (say the Honda DN-01, and we know how that did and even then it was a "copy" of the alligator). The Japanese started off copying Harley-Davidson style back in the late 70's for their first "cruisers" and still do a little today. But the Daytona 675 isn't a Chinese rip off either, it's just influenced, as you say, but some of the most successful bikes ever sold.

I like that reply. :D When I say "unique" I mean the engine type, 3 cylinder and 675cc, there isn't anything out there in the spotbike market like it. (good and bad I suppose).

This is going to be a good debate on this model I can tell. :kicking:

Just perfect. Perfectly sized, unique engine configuration, and not ridiculously priced (at least compared to Italian exotica). Only thing better would be the same engine in the Street Triple R.

I wonder if Triumph will bring back their automotive production again, it's not uncommon for motorcycle makes to make cars as well.. ie, Honda, Suzuki... even KTM...

Now a Ducati car, that would be interesting too...

The Japanese didn't really copy HD back in the late 70s. Nobody copied Harleys back then as practically nobody bought Harleys back then. :laughing: The Jap "customs" then were still copies of British bikes (Yamaha XS parallel twin) or they were unique (Kawasaki LTD inline 4s). The customs that they built in the 80s and early 90s were mostly influenced by what the riders in Japan and America were building from their bikes (Honda Magnas & Shadows). Contrary to what many people believe, these were not "bothched" Harley copies that were failed attempt to capture the American look. They were not trying to copy Harley (Harley was not still selling very well at this time, just getting back on their feet. No need to copy something that does not sell well). These Jap customs sold quite well. In fact the Jap customs like the Honda Shadow of the mid 80s have a unique and highly appealing look to my eyes. Then of course Harley became very popular in the early 90s. This is when the Japenese started building cruisers that were highly influenced by HD and still do to this day.

totalmotorcycle wrote: But the Daytona 675 isn't a Chinese rip off either, it's just influenced, as you say, but some of the most successful bikes ever sold.
No certainly not. :shock:
The fact remains it is an almost identical copy of the CBR. Its similarities would almost make the Chinese :chinese: blush.
The new Tiger might even be worse. Probably is because the looks of the BMW GS is so unique that to copy something that unusual makes the "crime" even worse.

Yes agreed that the triple is a great engine and it was smart of them to not compete directly with the Jap Four with a 600 four as Triumph would have gotten their a$$es handed to them. The "cheater" displacement was originally done by Kawasaki however. Speaking of triples, Triumph has a new competition however in the form of MV Augusta with their F3.

Bloor did this out of passion, not because he needed the money. Thus I don't ever see him building cars. Also an oligopoly like an automobile manufacturer is probably beyond even the finances of Bloor.

I just checked on the official media site for Triumph and there is nothing official about this bike, so it may look different as this could be a pre-production shot or even a photoshoped image.

The Tiger 1050 is a little pricey vs the Tenere so if that's the case let's hope for additional goodies and even better build quality.

I just came back to add that Triumph wrote me personally about 3 weeks ago letting me know their 2012 models would be out by the 20th or so, (just a few 2012's and I have those up since the 5th) so I expect the 2012 Triumphs to be released this week anyways. Stay tuned. :D

HYPERR - It seems that is indeed the real photo of the 2012 Triumph, but it was embargoed to post before today. Triumph won't be happy about that.



I was just sent the following last night and couldn't post it till now (below). I have photos as well for the models and will add those to the 2012 Triumph Guide: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... riumph.htm


Embargoed until Monday, October 24, 2011


Triumph introduces three new motorcycles for 2012

Fresh from recording record sales in 2011, Triumph Motorcycles will celebrate its 110th anniversary in 2012 with its strongest ever line-up, boosted by three new models which will be officially unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan, on November 8.

Triumph Tiger Explorer
Brand new for 2012 is the Tiger Explorer, a flagship model for Triumph’s Adventure range.

Building upon 2011’s phenomenally successful Tiger 800 models, the Tiger Explorer is powered by an all-new, shaft-driven, three-cylinder engine in excess of 1200cc, delivering class-leading performance to the adventure touring class.

The Tiger Explorer debuts Triumph’s new ‘ride-by-wire’ throttle system and includes cruise control, switchable ABS and traction control as standard. The high specification continues in the chassis department with a strong steel chassis and cast alloy wheels, 19” front and 17” rear, the latter showcased thanks to the stylish single-sided swingarm.

A suite of accessories have also been developed for the Tiger Explorer’s launch with hard and soft luggage, low and high seat options and a wide range of heated and electrical accessories which can be run simultaneously thanks to the Tiger Explorer’s best-in-class 950w generator.

Triumph Speed Triple R
Following the success of the R models for the Street Triple and Daytona 675, Triumph is introducing a premium version of its iconic Speed Triple, the Speed Triple R.

Working in close collaboration with Swedish suspension brand Öhlins, the Speed Triple R sports the latest specification NIX30 43mm forks at the front, with a jewel-like TTX36 unit at the rear. To minimize unsprung weight as much as possible, the lightweight five-spoke forged aluminum wheels from PVM are more than 3.7 lbs. lighter than those on the standard machine to deliver even more precise and agile handling. Stopping the Speed Triple R are top specification four-piston radial monoblock callipers from Brembo, the leading brand in MotoGP racing, with a switchable version of Triumph’s electronic anti-lock system available as an option. Together, the brakes and wheels offer a 5% increase in braking performance over the standard Speed Triple.

The Speed Triple R’s choice of metallic Phantom Black and Crystal White color options are complemented with red colored subframe and detailing, as well as the iconic gold forks, to create a sportier and more exotic look that confirms its status as Triumph’s premier naked sports model.

Triumph Steve McQueenTM Edition
Triumph has joined forces with the estate of Hollywood icon Steve McQueen to create a limited edition motorcycle that pays tribute to the late actor’s love of the British brand’s products.

Based on the classic Bonneville T100, just 1,100 of the Steve McQueenTM Edition will be sold worldwide. Featuring a host of modified parts, the design is inspired by the Triumph Trophy TR6 that McQueen insisted on riding during the famous stunt scene in The Great Escape, and features a military-style matte khaki green livery, stencil-style Triumph decal on the tank and the actor’s signature on the side covers.

Featuring a solo seat and black luggage rack, the McQueen bike has also been fitted with a rugged skid plate and small black-bodied headlamp. The Triumph Steve McQueenTM Edition features a host of other blacked-out components, including wheel rims and hubs, handlebars, rear springs, mirrors and front mudguard supports. To confirm the bike’s provenance, each machine is individually numbered with a plaque placed on the handlebar clamp, while owners will also receive a certificate of authenticity with their machine.

Full details of Triumph’s new-for-2012 models will be announced at Triumph’s press conference at EICMA, held on stand H26 at 12:30 local time on November 8, 2011.

I voted: cool.

I really like the styling of the bike (even if HYPERR thinks it's a total rip off)...the sound that bike makes is pretty unique...I don't think it is a copy...ask Honda if they would like their CBR600 to perform as well as a Triumph?? An improvement on a design maybe, but not a copy...or is everyones liter class adventure bike a copy of a DL1000 V-Strom?

Later.
