Triumph's Daytona 660

The Daytona 660, which Triumph has recently released, features a 660cc triple that produces 95 horsepower at 11,250 rpm and 69 Nm at 8,250 rpm, making it the most powerful bike to date. 

Although the Daytona 660 is a completely faired motorcycle, it has a far more laid-back rider triangle than the original, harsh 675. The riding position is athletic yet comfortable because the clip-on handlebars are positioned above the fork tops and the footpegs are not very high up.

Additionally, compared to a conventional supersport like, say, a Kawasaki ZX-6R, the split seats are larger and ought to provide greater comfort for both the rider and the passenger.

There are a few significant alterations, but the wheels, primary frame, and majority of the cycle elements remain the same. Triumph-branded radially mounted calipers, a Sport riding mode that supersedes only the Road and Rain modes on the other two Triumph 660s, and a weight of 201 kg (12 kg more than the Trident) distinguish the Daytona 660. 

The Daytona’s seat height has increased to 810mm from 5mm on the Trident. Additionally, the Daytona 660 is equipped with sportier Michelin Power 6 tires as opposed to the sport-touring Michelin Road 5 tires seen on the Trident 660 and Tiger Sport 660. 

Similar to other Triumph models, there is a wide range of extras available, such as baggage, protection, a dash-mounted Bluetooth module, and a bidirectional quickshifter. 

The Daytona 660 is more expensive in the UK than the Trident 660, which is priced at 7,895 pounds (about Rs 8.35 lakh) and 8,595 pounds (roughly Rs 9.09 lakh). Given that Triumph sells almost all of its foreign models here, the Daytona 660 is anticipated to make its India debut in 2024. The Honda CBR650R, which isn’t presently available for purchase in India, is the new Daytona’s closest competitor. However, we do anticipate its eventual comeback.
