Triumph has not changed the line of the Daytona 675 R. It stands out with a specific and unique livery, made ​​of white, black and red threads. Loop back frame is painted red. It receives carbon accessories such as thermal protection exhaust, front fender and rear dressing dashboard. The dashboard is changing somewhat, with a digital window that lack of clarity. Include a gear position indicator, two trips, the engine temperature, stopwatch ... The tachometer needle classic is more readable. It is surmounted by a string of blue LEDs that serves shift light. It's very visual in action.
Like previous models, the practical aspects are missing: no safe in the course saddle and a rather symbolic protection. For once, this R version, Triumph could also offer a silent Arrow approved ideally complement the package. The wheels are those of the standard version. Triumph considered a time to get the wheels in magnesium, but the weight saving was not significant and the price too high. The steering damper is the same as the standard version, but Ohlins trying to find a specific item for this Daytona Triumph and offer a relevant cost.

It is identical to the standard Daytona 675, which has received a lot of improvements in 2009. There is always a line 3-cylinder 675 cm3, ultra compact, with ribs supporting the bore (74 mm x 52.3 mm stroke). Water-cooled, with 12 valves, it also has a forced air intake. He received a Keihin, triple butterflies, 44 mm in diameter.
This injection system has a mechanism to allow a slightly open butterflies dlors closures accelerator at high speed. This is to give an effect of "light throttle" entries in fast corners, and thus dispense with a mechanical slipper mounted on the clutch. It's pretty compelling to use. This complex system, which also uses the services of lighting, appeared on the 2009 model. It has been refined with the arrival of the shifter. The racing kit of the brand still has a slipper clutch.

The changes are very visual. The inverted Kayaba fork 41 mm series gives way to a Ohlins NIX30 of type 43 mm, requiring a change in the triple clamps. It is adjustable for preload, rebound and compression. As with al Yamaha R1, for example, the functions of expansion and compression are separated, sitting on each tube.
These settings are accessible at the top of the fork tube. Integrating cartridges 30 mm, it has a depression and a very progressive relaxation. This fork is specific to the Daytona 675 R and can not be controlled with Ohlins unit. The rear shock is a TTX36 model, well-known competition. It is adjustable for preload, rebound and compression. Both hydraulic settings are easily accessible at the top of the shock absorber: ideal setting to change between the two sets of towers. The brake calipers are radially mounted Brembo Monobloc. They replace Nissin the standard version. The master cylinder Brembo 18 mm replaces Nissin 19mm.
Despite transplant these hi-tech elements, geometry values ​​do not change and remain among the most compact of its kind: 1395 mm wheelbase, 23 , 9 ° angle of steering column and 185 kg fully fueled announced as the standard version: according to Triumph, the Brembo carbon and the Ohlins R offset the heavier elements.
