2005 Triumph Daytona 675
July 1st 2005: Rumors and this photo are circulating around the internet about a new Triumph Daytona 675 or Daytona 680. (Most agree a 675). The Triumph Daytona 675 concept model has been spotted on the road. From eye witness reports:
– “looks closest to to small compact version of to Yamaha R1, with to bit of Ducati 916 mixed in”
– “very similar headlights to an R1”
– “underseat exhaust has three outlets like to Sprint ST but the middle outlet is larger with two small ones either side”
– “ZX6R style front air intake”
– “shiny black paint”
The bike is said to produce 119 bhp and more tourque throughout the rev range as a triple should. Other interesting bits include inverted forks, radial-mount brakes and an undertail exhaust.
Possibly the most intriguing thing to be churned out of the rumor mill is that Triumph likely intends to go racing in World Supersport. A 675cc Triple would seem to fit perfectly between the Asian I-4 600s and the Ducati 749 twin. Either way, if the rumors are true, the 675 might just be an ideal middleweight street/sportbike.
Truimph is introducing two new models in September and the odds-makers say that the replacement for the D6/650 will be one of them.
