First Look: Six Monkeys Triumph Daytona 1050

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?

Not sure what anyone else thinks, but this looks more like 1050 Speed Three with a fairing than a Daytona 675 with a 1050 motor.

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?

I seem to recall a 2003 daytona 955 puts out 149 ps, 139hp from a modified 2009,1050 doesnt exactly sound too exciting. I seems more like a rebadged marketing idea than a revolutionary new bike. They need to do a bit better than for me spend my money upgrading.
