Triumph bike remains undefeated

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, May. 08, 2008
Triumph’s Daytona 675 has won the Supertest trophy for a record third consecutive year.

The Supertest competition, held in Almeria, Spain, is an annual shootout of supersport bikes from the major motorcycle manufacturers. A panel consisting of 15 motorcycle magazines from around the world evaluates the bikes based on their lap times and feedback from test riders.

The three-cylinder Daytona 675 set faster lap times than the four-cylinder motorcycles from Japanese manufacturers and received favorable feedback.The Triumph Daytona 675 beat out the competition to retain its Supertest trophy.

“Winning the title three years in a row is quite an achievement,” says Tue Mantoni, commercial director for Triumph. “Our bike has proven itself against two generations of Japanese competition and is a great testament to our design and engineering teams.”

The Triumph Daytona 675 remains unbeaten in the Supertest competition since its introduction in 2006.

“Our philosophy is to build motorcycles that are class leading, while remaining distinctively Triumph,” says Mantoni. “Strong sales figures and winning comparison tests like Supertest are confirmation that our bikes are striking the correct chord with riders, and continue to motivate us in developing more new and exciting products for the coming years.”
