The New Triumph 675R - Triumph Daytona 675R Review
Perfect for any riderThe new 126bhp three-clinder short-stroke engine the bike has only makes 2bhp more but the machine revs harder and can be easily tuned – Triumph's objective for the bike is to be raced which is perfect for any rider. Triumph have also included lots of new components. The bike has a new cylinder block, pistons, gudgeon pins, crankcase oil baffles, titanium inlet valves and gearbox. A new slipper clutch has been added which has a two-way ramp for extra slip and grip on and off the throttle and lighter clutch springs. The ABS has a circuit setting which disables the rear ABS and lets you slide your way into the corners, very suitable for racing on short circuits. Perfect for the Triumph Triple Challenge and Smiths Racing riders Billy McConnell backed by WeBuyAnyBike.com and Glen Richards. Another thing which is perfect for the racing scene is the way the motorcycle is so fast and controlled around corners and seriously quick in a straight line.
Great value for moneyAnother thing, is it worth the money? Does this machine live up to its value? And, it has to be a yes for the amount of performance you get from the 675R. It's great value for money. Even better, the standard version is cheaper. It's an easier to ride motorcycle than the Suzuki GSX-R750 and the Ducati 848. So it's the quickest regularly used bike you can buy. The model is definitely the best of the lot. Triumph first launched the bike in 2006 but gave the machine a 'face-lift' in 2009 to make the bike quicker, weigh less. But also to change the way it looked with different bodywork and ECU. In 2011 they brought out the all-new 'R' version. Which was complete with Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes. A quick shifter was also added as well as carbon fibre front mudguard, exhaust cap and fairing infils.
Gone down a stormAlong with racing stars the general public and biker enthusiasts love the new 675R. The bike has gone down a storm in the Triumph Triple Challenge. With youngsters Chrissy Rouse, Freddy Pett and Charlie King getting to grips with the motorcycle very quickly. Australian rider Billy McConnell has pushed hard to grab his first British Supersport win this year. But so far that hasn't come, but new title contention riders have. How will Billy McConnell fare alongside the current champion, Glen Richards once again this year?
