Easy to dose brake with a powerful bite. The discs grew by three millimeters in diameter.

The spacious front silencer is clearly visible from this perspective. The three-cylinder still sounds robust.

In racetrack mode, the ABS on the rear wheel allows enough slip for braking drifts.

Driving report Triumph Daytona 675 R

Short motorcycle with a crisp engine

The previous Daytona was already a short motorcycle with a crisp engine. The new one has been refined in many ways, but retains this character. How she does it, of course, cannot be described in three words.

Triumph Daytona 675 R

W.What gear for curve number three? Anyone who taps the racetrack in Cartagena, southern Spain, faces this question. The tight downhill left-hand bend has to be approached from a right-hand bend with an energetic flipping of the motorcycle, but during the first few laps you act too cautiously, you are too late for the right line and park on an incline. The engine paralyzes at low revs in second gear, but it pulls and brakes so hard in first that you produce a mess of load and lean changes.

New look, familiar character: the new Daytona 675 R.

This development includes careful use of the brake. Not because it’s too snappy. Don’t worry, the Brembo monoblock system can be dosed very finely despite its enormous power, and the Nissin ABS, which is standard on the Daytona R, is also on board. But in racetrack mode, which is also strongly recommended on the racetrack, the stoppie control is disabled. If you pull too hard on the lever too quickly, you put the short, light Daytona a tempo on the front wheel, possibly steeper than you would like. Even in the uphill braking zone at the end of the home straight, small bumps occasionally nudge the rear wheel into the air. And even when braking less sharply in an inclined position, the rear wheel is largely relieved, so that even the new anti-hopping clutch cannot prevent occasional dangling when engaging the clutch after downshifting. Nevertheless, it deserves praise because its relatively soft springs require little actuation force.

As with its predecessor, the new Daytona R also features Öhlins suspension elements, the coordination of which has been revised. The fork offers ten millimeters more suspension travel, and the TTX shock absorber has a softer spring. This change is particularly noticeable; the rear suspension is nowhere near as stubborn as it used to be. The revised gearbox, which has a new shift mechanism and new gear pairs for the first two gears, rounds off the first impression of the new Daytona: A powerful engine with a high level of smoothness and impeccable responsiveness forms the core, a diversely refined one that emphasizes the Racetrack tailored chassis the periphery. With its noble components, the R costs a lot of money again, but almost nothing is left to be desired.

What does normal mean here??

Diablo Red, Crytal White, Phantom Black. Three variants of the Daytona 675.

For 1,800 euros less (11,890 euros plus additional costs), the standard version of the Daytona does without Öhlins spring elements, the standard ABS, the Brembo brake calipers, the gearshift assistant and some carbon parts, but otherwise offers everything that the R has, especially the convincing engine. For a surcharge of 400 euros, you can also order the Daytona with ABS, and Triumph also offers a number of other accessories, including shift assistants, the prices of which have not yet been calculated.

The Kayaba spring elements of the Daytona have a slightly different set-up – the springs are a little harder at the front and rear, the spring travel is shorter, with a notable difference of 110 instead of 120 millimeters only at the fork. The editor has not yet been able to try out how the athlete uses it; the presentation in Cartagena was reserved for the R model. MOTORRAD will report at the first opportunity.
