First ride: Triumph 675R track review

down for the onboard lap

The Daytona is £1400 more expensive the standard 675 but I think it should more.

Your 16% additional gets you Öhlins 43mm down NIX30 forks and an TTX36 rear shock. On top of you get an upgraded Brembo master Brembo radial monoblock brakes, a quickshifter, fancy and carbon fibre goodies.

The comes fitted with Supercorsa SP tyres but the model I was fitted with Bridgestone’s new S20 They’re not as track focused as Supercorsa SP but they’re still black and stick like a

What I love about the 675 is its size and its riding position. small, narrow and easy to between your legs at a If you don’t feel like you can the bike around at 0mph, what hope have you got at

You sit on it, not in it and the bars are set wide — the rest of the package being — giving the 675R the of a race bike. When are set at a tight angle, that’s my wrists play up, so the closer are to being sat at 90-degrees, the better. passes with flying

The next thing I love the Daytona 675 is the grunt. It’s an feeling to be driving a tiny 600 off the end like you can with the 675. 600s don’t just you to be in the right gear, you need to be in the 1,000 revs too or you’ll off the boil and become little than a flustered, slow scalp to the guy who’s about to you. But not on the 675.

Its torque curve monsters all the 600s and is comparable to a 750. that extra torque especially in the lower rev range that makes the 675 a doddle to fast because you don’t to be quite so ‘on it’ as you do on a 600 and if not quite in the right rev-range, the 675 care of that for you.

So these extra bits on the the quickshifter is quicker and smoother even your smoothest of but it’s not as good as many of the quickshifters out there. It’s in feel to BMW’s ‘shift-assist’ on the — both come heir own when you want to up mid corner without unsettling the

The suspension is top quality stuff, not gold in colour with the stickers, it’s exactly the as you’d see on a Supersport bike on the Superbikes grid. The trouble Öhlins is that it’s really, but the NIX30 forks and rear shock are straight out of the top and not just a gesture of greatness.

layout means you spend a lot of on the front, either scrubbing off or carrying it into corners, to pile it back on. Everything been upgraded on the 675R you with these two tasks.

The Brembo radial monoblocs are of the best brakes I’ve on track, they’re the same as fitted to my 848 Challenge race they’ve got huge bite being savage but there’s no the Öhlins 30mm cartridge kit in the and larger master cylinder you gauge just how much you can apply. The great thing these Brembos is that the force comes to you instantly and there — there’s a time where you need an squeeze because you feel you’re fading and about to it.

The Daytona 675R is a very behaved bike. The steering is without being flighty, without feeling rigid. the carbon fibre and fancy job, what you’re is feel, what you do with feel is up to you.

Buying a 675R and not adjusting the would be like serving a wine from a Thermos

At £1400 on top of the cost of a standard 675, the 675R is not expensive There’s one thing the Daytona lacks and that’s a slipper This bike is so good in so areas but when it comes to entry, its Achilles’ heel is the end.

With Bridgestone’s S20 the hopped around under but with a grippier tyre, the Supercorsa SP, it would be worse. the rear mis-behaving it affects the you can brake at the front and slightly an otherwise accomplished package.

for £2000 more than a Daytona 675, buy the R but add a really slipper clutch and if you can, in an Arrow slip-on into the and you’ll have yourself one of the tools for hunting down who aren’t quite in the right revs.

Price: £9,999
