Wacky German builders create a big-bore brother to the Daytona 675
TAKE A Triumph Daytona 675 as a concept and with the help of Six Monkeys add a 139bhp 1050cc engine.Sounds bizarre, we know, but German company Six Monkeys have done just that by turning a Speed Triple 1050 into a big brother to the Daytona 675.Six Monkey's have modified the bike's fuel-injection software and the airbox, to give a power output of 139bhp at 9,100rpm and 116Nm of torque at 7,600 revs, so it's not just a Speed Triple with clip-ons, there's added power there too.
Carbonfibre bodywork, suspension components and steering damper from Wilbers, Dunlop Qualifier RR tyres and BOS exhaust system, all give the bike a pretty sweet look, we love it!What do you think, should Triumph build this bike?

Look at the frame, it's from a Speed Triple, not the most accurate stoprey this one……..Careful there fella's, you're slipping into MCN-Make-Believe-Story territory. I visit this site because it usually right, it's slippery slope..........

Its an accurate story if your just a little bit literate, otherwise its probably non-sense.
" ... done just that by turning a Speed Triple 1050 into a big brother to the Daytona 675."
It is a speed triple with fairings, and thats what the story reports it as. When Triumph get round to building it (which I think they will and they definitely should) i'm sure it'll look more like a 675.
The 675 has had success in supersport racing, how about the 1050 in BSB or even WSB?
