The 2010 Triumph Daytona 675 SE was beautiful in understated white paint over a blue frame, with the lack of graphics emphasizing the Daytona’s exotic, high-end appeal. Now, while the colors have been retained, Triumph’s slapped a bunch of cheesy graphics all over the sides, unnecessarily cluttering the looks. The whole idea behind the Daytona is that it’s not a trashy Japanese 600, but rather something that looks and feels like something more exotic. The fact that it retails for less than a Honda CBR600RR just sweetens the deal. At $10,299, the new version at least retains the price advantage even as it loses some of its timelessness. Oh well, I guess we can always take a hair dryer and some Goo Be Gone to it.
