Triumph has this week revealed its new Daytona 660 middleweight sportsbike, which is available to order now in both LAMS and full-power configurations, and is expected to arrive in showrooms from March.

The Triumph Daytona 660 builds on its ‘660’ triple-cylinder platform as debuted with the Trident naked bike, but gains a number of key upgrades including a 17 per cent boost to power and a nine per cent increase in torque.

This means that the 660cc engine underpinning the Daytona 660 delivers a healthy 70kW and 69Nm, and should project a unique soundtrack thanks to an all-new exhaust system. In LAMS trim, the Daytona 660 is restricted to 42kW and 62Nm.

With the 14-litre tank filled to 90 per cent capacity, the bike tips the scales at 201 kilograms. For comparison, the rivaling Yamaha YZF-R7 ($15,649) undercuts the Daytona on weight with a rating of 188kg, but offers less grunt from its 54kW/67Nm parallel-twin mill.

The bike presents as a fully faired sportsbike with neutral forward leaning ergonomics to strike a balance between sportiness and comfort. A seat height of 810mm should make it comfortable for most new and experienced riders.

“The 660 has all the attitude and agility you’d expect from the Daytona name, and brings with it the thrilling, useable, real-world performance and all-day comfort that riders today are looking for,” explained Triumph’s chief product officer Steve Sargent.

Suspension is handled by Showa, with 41mm upside-down forks damping the front end, while 310mm twin brake discs and new Michelin Power 6 tyres round out the major handling features.

Technology features extend to three rider modes (no six-axis IMU) and a TFT dash, while an up/down quickshifter and smartphone connectivity must be purchased as an option.

Triumph is expected to announce pricing for the Daytona 660 before its scheduled launch in March.
