2009 Triumph Daytona 675 now available

World Supersport race technology comes standard

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Jan. 28, 2009
The updated 2009 Triumph Daytona 675 has arrived at dealerships across the country.

The latest version of Triumph’s three-cylinder middleweight features technology developed by the manufacturer’s 2008 World Supersport race team.

“Triumph has taken an evolutionary approach with the Daytona by applying experience from racing in the 2008 Supersport World Championship directly to the street version of the Daytona 675,” says Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles. “The same technology that was used so successfully on the Supersport racing machines is now available as standard equipment on the 2009 production models that are in Triumph dealers across the country right now.”

The 2009 Daytona 675 comes standard with a hydraulic cam tensioner and a higher ratio first gear, previously available only through optional race kits.

Triumph says the 2009 version’s three-cylinder engine has a higher rev limit than 2008, up 450 rpm to 13,950rpm, and a claimed power output of 126 bhp at 12,600 rpm.

The 2009 Daytona 675 features technology developed during Triumph's debut World Supersport campaign in 2008.The updated Daytona 2009 is also reputedly seven pounds lighter than the previous model, with a dry weight of 356 pounds. Triumph attributes much of the weight difference to lighter wheels and a new magnesium cam cover.

Suspension is provided by fully-adjustable 41mm upside-down forks and rear monoshock units. The front wheel features new radial-mount Nissin monobloc front brakes and the bike comes equipped with Pirelli SuperCorsa SP tires.

The 2009 Triumph Daytona 675 is available in Jet Black and Tornado Red. A full range of accessories including a new “plug and play” quickshifter are also available.
