Details: 2009 Triumph Daytona 675 engineering diagrams

Galleries -

By

The 2009 Triumph Daytona 675 has been updated with 126bhp (a 2bhp increase), torque is up incrementally to 54lb/ft, the redline has been raised from 13,500 to 13,900rpm, weight has been reduced 3kg to 162kg (dry), New radial Nissin brakes provide 15% more power and 5% more bite, and the suspension is now more adjustable, offering high and low speed compression damping. All that pales in comparison to the new styling, still only a minor update, it’s noticeably more aggressive thanks to a revised cockpit and headlights. We thought we’d share these engineering diagrams with you; they emphasize that new styling and mechanical spec.

    Great bike. But way too “ass up, head down”, in both styling and ergos.

    How about a similar bike that can be ridden for more than 50 miles, without a requisite visit to the chiropractor.

      What, like the Triumph Street Triple?

      • Deckard

        No, like a faired sportbike that can be ridden for more than 50 miles.

          It’s called the daytona 600/650, bit older and not quite as powerful (110bhp for the 600) but still quick and actually quite comfy, i have a 600 and love it.

          • Deckard

            Agreed. Daytona 650 is an outstanding real world motorcycle. If Triumph made a similar bike with the triple motor, and revised the styling, they would have a customer.

            I’ve heard all the stories from 675 owners about how comfortable that bike is. And you are all borderline delusional ;)

          The current CBR600RR is super comfy and still a bitchin’ sportsbike.

    Is it pails or pales? I like this bike a lot, but it’s a real ball buster. Very uncomfortable for the street. I’d like a cross between the Daytona and the Street Triple. Call it a Street Triple S. Quarter or half fairing. Same tuning as the Daytona.

    I like the looks of the nose faring. It manages to avoid the bujutsu Japanese cliches. The rear tire looks to be way to large in the drawing. Otherwise, who would have thought a successful British Motorcycle firm would rise out of the ashes. They ought to have one model call the Phoenix. And now an entry in WSS.

    Hello.

    I own a 2007 Daytona 675. So does a friend of mine. Those who commented above probably do not own the bike.

    We both commute one way, 45 miles, to work. So 90 miles a day.

    We both rode over 630 miles in 11 hours during Hurricane Ike to Indianapolis, Indiana from Baltimore, MD.

    Sure I was tired and my knees were sore, those were the same complaints I heard from the other 2 riders that rode with us(a GSXR750 and a CBR600RR.) The Daytona 675 is actually a comfortable bike. Grip the bike with your knees, lean down and take the pressure of your wrists and rest on the tank for long rides.

      i think that depends a lot on how you’re built. i’m right at 6 feet and the whole reason i don’t own a daytona is because during the test drive i felt like i was laying on the tank. head down and ass up is right.

    Folks,

    Motorcycles are like shoes. Some fit you well, and some don’t.

    I just dislike hearing general commentary that may turn someone away from a great bike because of general hearsay… “That shoe didnt fit me, so it sucks.”

    In my circumstance, the Daytona 675 and I are like a hand sheathed in a form fitting silk glove.

    Ride on.

    • sam

      yep i agree. plus some people are just more willing to deal with a little discomfort, thats why we ride street bikes. get a bike where you can sit straight up if you want to ride 1000 mile days. its like saying “well i liked the power of the gun, but i just wish it didnt have any recoil”. its part of the experience.

    Argh! Isometric renderings give me a headache.

      Wow, this page has such a diverse range of fan’s and critic’s. I’m a big fan of obtuse personally.

      675 is a brilliant bike. I trust that this one is a step forward.
