Triumph reveal 2013 Daytona 675R

New engine, new chassis and slipper clutch. Your 675 dreams are now a reality

Lighter, tighter, whiter?

TRIUMPH have launched their new Daytona 675 and 675R at EICMA.

Following on from the launch of their new Street Triple and Street Triple R, the new 675 features a brand new engine, new chassis and a new look.

Just like on the Street Triple, the underseat exhaust is replaced by a compact under-slung version, which Triumph claim helps lower weight and improve handling.

The new engine features a wider bore and shorter stroke, which allows the 675 to rev to a staggering 14,400rpm redline. The ceramic-coated aluminium bores are stronger to cope with more pressure and more power; the new model has a couple of extra peak horsepower, an extra ftlb of torque but a claimed increased spread of torque through the midrange.

The engine changes don't stop there: the 675 features titanium valves, twin injectors per cylinder and a larger air intake to better feed the engine. There's also a new slipper clutch (or slip-assist clutch according to Triumph) and a similar system to the Panigale and HP4 that opens the throttle bodies to reduce engine braking with the aim of helping smooth out corner entry.

The suspension on the standard version is still by KYB (Kayaba) but is heavily revised. The 675R still comes with the TTX rear shock and NIX30 upside-down forks.

Expect to see weight saved in similar places on the new 675 as we saw on the Street Triple; lighter wheels and weight trimmed off here and there.

ABS is a £350 option on the 675 but standard fitment on the 675R.

The 675 will retail at £8,899 OTR while the 675R will come in at £10,599 OTR. Both will be available in the new year.

After seeing the 2013 CBR600rr I didn't think anything other than the panigale could possibly be better looking, but I was wrong... if only it had under-seat exhaust this would look perfect! I don't care about the lowered weight... I want a pretty rear end!

The front end looks like the Suzuki TL1000R

That is bloody sexy! Finally a manufacturer has put out a decent looking exhast rather than the usual massive boxy looking trash we've seen from the japanese bikes in the last few years.

The front looks slighty 05 zx10ish as well. which is never a bad thing!
