Changes to 2012 Daytona 675

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' at netrider.net.au started by spenaroo, May 2, 2012.

  1. Triumph has announced a number of changes to its iconic Daytona 675.
    The Daytona has received a 'refresh' with a striking new Sulphur Yellow paint scheme, which is underlined with yellow pin stripes on the wheels.
    With weight reduction a constant preoccupation with performance riders, the bikes front mudguard, cockpit infills and exhaust heat shield all get the lightweight carbon fibre treatment.
    The new look Daytona also now comes with a quickshifter and billet levers to strike home the racing pedigree of the bike. This all adds up to $1850 worth of parts & accessories at no extra cost.

    trouble now is if I sit on one it says "get off me "

  6. I still can't get over how great these are to ride. The quick shifter may be wank, but I like it so I guess I'm wanky.

  9. Is the 675 Daytona better in any way than the bigger Daytona(s)? It seems when people mention just 'Daytona' it almost always refers to the 675. I ask because I'd love a Daytona for my first non-restricted bike, but the bigger one would be cool since I'm a big boy

  14. Not so much yellow, more of a dirty green..... <shrug>

    The 675 Daytona is a fine bike, ..... if you are reasonably normal in size, for a track day thing. Twenty minutes on it, forty minutes to recover, take Panadol.

    As a normal day-to-day motorcycle however ..... <shrug>

    It doesne work for me.

  15. Actually just read an AMCN article today about the Daytona 675.....

    The 2013 is refuelled.....restyled.....better brakes, better handling and better throttle.....

    It's also a bit cheaper for the R model with Ohlins at both ends......

    NB** Not my kind of bike..........low end punch and torque is king in the real world in my books (that's why I ride everyday on a two-pot thumper :devil:) ......but hell - they keep making this thing sweeter and sweeter.....can't be a bad thing

  18. Well I agree, clear coat over the fairings untainted would be a nicer colour
