2015 Triumph Daytona 675
Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Apex after apex the new 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. Its faster on the track, better on the road and even more satisfying to own.Features May Include:
- Internals (injectors, valves)
With twin injectors per cylinder the new 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 built the new 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.
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.
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.
- Wheels and Tyres
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.
- Front Forks
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 its supported by thinner walls, it has more room for the damping piston, so a larger diameter one can be used, improving damping accuracy.
- Switchable ABS
Our new ABS system is switchable and includes a track mode with very late intervention, minimised rear wheel lift control and the facility to slide the rear wheel on the entry to corners.
- Slip-Assist Clutch
The addition of a slip-assist clutch means hard downshifting won’t result in a rear-wheel lock-up. It also serves to make the clutch lever action much lighter and smoother.
Instruments feature a lap timer, two trip computers, gear change indicators, shift lights, clock, and can be configured to show tyre pressures (where optional Tyre Pressure Monitoring System is fitted) and ABS switching. So you know more of what’s going on as you ride.
- Programmable Rev Lights
Programmable gear change indicators let you manually set up where in the rev range you want the lights to come on and prompt a gear change.
