2010 Triumph Daytona 675 SE: white paint, blue frame

Galleries -

By

Really just some white paint and a blue frame on a 2009 Triumph Daytona 675, these colors nevertheless combine to create a seriously good-looking motorcycle. The special edition has only been announced for European sale so far, but like the 15th Anniversary Triumph Speed Triple, we bet we’ll see it here in a couple of months. We’re impressed by the taste and restraint shown by Triumph’s design team, the blue paint really emphasizes the lines of the aluminum tube frame while the white paint and relative lack of graphics reinforce the Daytona’s exotic appeal. Compare it to the awkward red/white 2009 Yamaha R1 and you’ll see just how right this bike is.

Update: It looks like the SE will be available in the US shortly, but there’ll only be 350 examples available here. It’s priced at $9,999. Also, because we like you so much, we’ve added another 1280px wide image to the gallery above.

    It looks great in the pictures! I think Triumph did a good job on this one.
    Problem with the R1 is the pain job just makes it look fat =P

    The problem is that the various companies producing essentially the same piece of merchandise, need to differentiate it from lasts years and the others, thus models get more mannered and grotesque. Consider the Ducati Desmosedici RR for its purity of line and integration of detail, serenely confident to produce the finest expression of the type without regard to being different for it own sake.

    not a huge proponent of the colored frames, just seems like a fad on the cast frames that will become dated, like 80/90s neon colored graphics, but that white just looks sexy!!!

    Is this what Dr. House rides?

    Looks great. I love bikes that are painted up with a lot of restraint. A visit to a local dealership, carrying the big four minus Yamaha, reminded me of how significant a role that plays in my interest.

    That’s a pretty bike. The sculpted fairing and tank/seat/tail section provide enough visual impact, no need for graphics beyond the name and model. I hope this becomes the new trend.

    smart scheme.

    Needs Moar Chromomium!!!

    Seriously, Triumph has some great paint schemes. Roulette Green changed my life.

    The job looks great in pictures, but the Daytona always looks better in person to me.

    I fell in Love at first sight. Put a deposit on one Tuesday and I’m told its been shipped and will be here on Wednesday, should be riding it by Thursday. Can’t wait to see it live.

    great looking bike. i have an ’06.

    but i wouldn’t buy a triumph due to their suspect electronics (i’ve put over a grand trying to diagnose an electrical gremlin and the faulty part, crank position sensor, is $400) and shitty customer service (peter carleo, the customer relations manager, is a two-faced liar).
