Triumph Daytona 675R: not just cheap suspension

Dailies, Galleries -

By

The big fear when images of the Triumph Daytona 675R leaked with no information was that the Ohlins suspension would be the cheap OEM stuff that’s more about bling than it is mechanical upgrade. Well stop worrying, what you’re looking at is a $1,400 TTX36 shock and the latest, greatest NIX30 forks which cost $1,200 for the cartridge upgrade kits alone. There’s also fancy Brembo Monoblock radial brake calipers and even a Brembo radial master cylinder as well as a standard quickshifter. Still no word on the price.

    Big mistake to mess with their iconic logo on this R model…

      Why? It’s not like they’re ditching it on the rest of the range and it helps set this special model apart.

      Agreed – I think they’re making the “New Coke” logo mistake with this one.

      Messed with. There’s a time and place to stay with the same old logo … then there’s a time to shake it up.

    The headline “Triumph Daytona 675R: not just cheap suspension” sounds like not only does it have cheap suspension, but there are other cheap components as well…

      Well, I guess you’ll just have to read the article then.

    Might it be too much to hope they’ll put some of that lead in the Street Triple’s pencil?

    • 2ndclasscitizen

      Well, Triumph sell Supersport engine kits in their accessory catalogue so I’d say it’s fair bet you’d be able to order a set for the Street.

    Love it. Whack logo and all. This is my next bike for sure. It’ll kill the liter bikes on short tracks. Seriously, TTXs? This will rule all over the F3, and all of MV bases will be mine.

    What I said about the MV a few days ago, I was wrong. Way wrong. If those are in fact top shelf Ohlins components, this will be THE bike. For the cost of a set of NTECs, this bad boy will likely have no problem smoking anything short of a high-end liter bike.
