Triumph has decided update the Daytona 675 Triple for the 2009 season with a host of modifications to improve the bike’s already class-leading handling and performance.
The only three-cylinder bike in its class now weighs 3kg less and develops 3PS more power than its predecessor!
The latest specification 675cc three-cylinder engine utilizes a 450rpm higher rev limit than the 2008 model, while the hydraulic cam chain tensioner and higher ratio first gear have jumped straight from the race kit to become standard equipment for the road. The new, 2kg-lighter exhaust system, recalibrated fuel injection and revised cylinder head, with new valves and a modified combustion chamber, contribute to a power plant pumping out 128PS and revving to a 13,950rpm redline. A new magnesium cam cover also contributes to the weight-saving and, as a further benefit to racers and track day enthusiasts, Triumph will be adding a ‘plug and play’ quick shifter to its genuine accessories range.
The Daytona 675 comes equipped with top of the line suspension and brakes. The fully-adjustable 41mm upside down forks and rear monoshock unit both benefit from highly sophisticated high and low speed damping control, allowing riders to set their Daytona up with maximum accuracy. New radial-mount Nissin monobloc brakes give even greater levels of stopping power and rider feedback, and new wheels give significant savings in unsprung weight and help the bike change direction more easily. The latest Pirelli SuperCorsa SP tyres have been specified for their outstanding levels of both grip and feedback.
The 2009 Daytona 675 has also been restyled, with a new cockpit, headlamp and screen and would be launched with two color options, Jet Black and Tornado Red in December.
