Triumph announces Daytona 675SE
Triumph is introducing a special edition of its award-winning Daytona 675 supersport model, featuring a lustrous new Pearl White colour scheme, complemented with a distinctive Sparkle Blue frame, swingarm and subframe.
The Daytona 675SE's stunning new livery has been designed to enhance the British bike's sleek and slender profile, with newly styled blue graphics and race-inspired pinstripes on the graphite coloured wheels giving the Daytona 675SE a fresh and distinctive look.
Powered by the critically-acclaimed 675cc three-cylinder engine producing 126bhp, the Daytona 675SE is mechanically identical to the standard Daytona 675, which has received universal praise since its introduction at the start of the year, winning several road and track based group tests against its supersport class competitors.
The circuit-developed machine embraces the very latest chassis technology, including highly sophisticated and adjustable suspension both at the front and rear. These suspension units, adjustable for both high and low speed compression damping, give unparalleled levels of control for the sporting rider while offering a plusher than expected ride on rough road surfaces.
A full range of official accessories are available for the Daytona 675SE, giving owners an opportunity to personalise both the looks and performance of their machine. Discerning track day enthusiasts are well catered for with a number of accessories, including numerous lightweight carbon fibre parts, a 'plug-and-play' quick shifter set, and exquisite race-style rear set footrests and silencers developed in cooperation with Italian race specialists Arrow Special Parts. Triumph's association with another high-end Italian brand, Alpinestars, has also developed a range of performance garments, gloves and boots designed specifically for the needs of both male and female Daytona 675 riders.
The Triumph Daytona 675SE is expected in dealerships this coming August, pricing is yet to be confirmed.
