Though the almighty inline-four had become the standard in supersport models, Triumph shook things up in 2006 with the release of the three-cylinder Daytona 675. What the British three-banger lacked in top speed, it more than made up for with its immense low and mid-range oomph – but the real joy came from the addition of a track-oriented R-spec in 2011.
By 2014, the liquid-cooled, 675cc, four-stroke, 12-valve, DOHC, triple was putting down 128hp (at 12,500rpm) and 55 ft-lbs of torque (at 11,900rpm), and was capable of a top-speed of 165 mph. Housing the potent triple was an aluminum twin-spar chassis made from only eight castings. The frame was paired with a dual-sided, braced, aluminum alloy swing-arm with adjustable pivot position. The 2014 Daytona also got 17” five-arm cast aluminum alloy rims fore and aft and a six-speed transmission with a slip-assist clutch.
Though the 2014 base model is a seriously stellar motorcycle, the race-focused 675R cranks things up a few notches. Replacing the base model’s KYB suspenders are high-end Ohlins units: NIX30 forks and a TTX monoshock. The R also features heat-fade-resistant Brembo monobloc radial calipers, a factory quick-shifter, red subframe, and carbon fiber fenders and cockpit infills. The ABS — which only weighs 3.3lbs — boasts a track mode that lets the back wheel step out.
This particular “Crystal White” 2014 675R has approximately 16,400 miles, and though it sports the entire factory R-spec package (Ohlins, Brembos, quick shifter, carbon bits, etc), this example has also been treated to a number of performance-oriented aftermarket goodies including a carbon fiber Two Brothers exhaust, adjustable CRG brake lever, OneDesign and StompGrip tank pads, Evotech tail tidy, GB Racing swingarm spools, and a GPR steering damper. There’s evidence of tipovers on both sides, with scuffs on the left engine cover and clutch lever as well as the right bar end and right fairing. We’ve included photos of all noticeable damage in the album above.
A track-ready package with usable/tractable power on the street, the Triumph Daytona 675R is regarded as one of the best motorcycles released in the last decade. It’s a straight-up hooligan machine masquerading as a supersport, and it has all the trappings of a classic in the making.
