Triumph Daytona 600

Go back a year or so from and it looked like all the effort had put into developing their range of bikes was a total The fire that destroyed the at Hinckley had put them back so far production and parts replacement it seemed a lost cause, but change. Triumph are fully from the huge fire a year ago and now boast probably the sophisticated and efficient motorcycle facility in the world.

Out of the ashes launched the Daytona 600 late in If you glance at the specs of the latest 600 it becomes obvious that is not your usual Triumph. in Japan springs to mind, if you look at what you get in comparison to the offerings in the very competitive 600 On price alone it is right in in the real world it’s up at the top as a you can use every day, but get it out on a track and where you will see the difference.

just an astonishing bike.

the time that I had the pleasure of the company I did many road on it. I took it to a trackday at Rockingham circuit in 32deg sunshine, I it to Germany to ride the Nurburgring for 4 again in 30-32deg sunshine, and all in all it was the usual treatment of road and use. My conclusion after sort of trips and mileage was this bike just in every task it was given.

I rode a 600 Triumph some 3 ago. It was the old TT600, and at that it felt solid, pretty and quite refined, but was missing that other 600’s of the day had in it wasn’t very exciting. You argue that it felt a like an early CBR, a all-rounder and everyday bike, but it never compete with the 600’s from Japan. Triumph was the forerunner for the new generation of 600 bikes.

It did, arguably set the parameters for the important class of sportsbike and now all of them have things EFi, fantastic frames, brakes and serious handling.

The manufacturers have since the past three years technical imporvements to the entire 600 Things have now evened out a and the stakes between most are similar, including the Triumph. But the 600 is a still a little different it comes to a really useable which will do anything well, it is a true ‘Q’ and can compete at all levels in any class of

After some time it I now understand why it won it’s class at the of man TT this year.

The Triumph 600 has a liquid-cooled four-cylinder in-line It’s a rev hungry motor spins up in a flash. The engine is unlike a normal Triumph, the increasing to a 14,000rpm scream is any other Triumph I have ridden, it really lets you it’s the shortest … in any 600 currently produced. The Keihin injection is very good at this screamer of a motor fed fuel at just the right there’s no jerkiness, no flat just a smooth response a seriously good and well system.

My first real after collecting the Daytona Triumph’s factory in Hinckley was a 100 trip back home and the day another 200 miles around the counties. It was a real eye opener to such a bike in all types of conditions and on such a variety of Fast dual carriageways, country roads in Oxfordshire, traffic and city roads in nothing seemed to phase the Daytona.

It was comfortable, easy to ride and at ease in any situation. The Daytona was with the new Pirelli Diablo tyres and it was my first time a bike with these on. I was impressed with them to say the

On ordinary roads the bike and handled brilliantly, not a sign of of lack of grip anywhere, the package of tyres and bike worked so well.

Ride the in any type of traffic and on any road and you soon find out that bike is nothing like the or alternative TT600. The throttle at lower revs is everything the wasn’t.

On leaving a town or or powering out of a tight bend or the Daytona pulls away no fuss, no flatspots and no need for a lot of to get going, just a slight and you are away from a standing Up to 4000rpm up the Triumph pulls smoothly, hit 6500rpm and it comes to

From there the power steadily as the revs rise through to 10,500rpm, at which the motor takes on a different as it hardens up giving you a power and a distinct speed build-up to the 14,500 red-line. It’s a delivery all the way from start, no sudden power drop-off or spots, the 16 valve motor keeps going all the way delivering its to you in a very enjoyable way.

The 600 Supersports series race by Valmoto runs to a red line of rpm, this is still standard engine internals as by the British Supersport rules. Now impressive!

The Triumph Daytona 600 is impressive indeed as an everyday The rev-hungry engine is very in all kinds of traffic. The bike is very comfortable to ride for distances compared to most 600 supersports, and it doesn’t get heavy on wrists at any time. The seating is slightly higher than 600’s, also the footpegs are set a lower too, which you are not so squashed up as riding an R6 for example.

I that the riding position my knees fit perfectly into the on the tank and gave a feeling of being a part of the bike and not perched on it somewhere. All these things make such a to the overall feel of the bike you ride it, it fits like a well for me anyway!

Riding the on any type of road surface is a unlike most other Some of the roads out in the wilds of and the Cotswolds are not particularly inviting to race-rep sportsbikes, but the suspension on the seems to be able to cope any type of road presented to it. The rear suspension and the front cartridge forks are very and totally compliant over any of road surface.

This with the superb chassis eats up the bumps and undulations in the and is stable and secure. In corners, bumpy ones, the lack of a damper isn’t a problem. The feels very balanced good turn-in and quick response from the short wheelbase.

If there is one thing I have to on the Daytona 600 then it has to be the gearchange, felt a bit vague at times. In places and on certain roads it a bit notchy and stiff, not positive as you expect from a Japanese it was in fact a little harsh at I think with a bit more it would ease, but even at miles it felt as though it had left the factory.

It was never a though at any time, it just you a little aware that it was than normal. The gear are perfect though, they been chosen to give you a spread of tractability in the lower yet have 5th and 6th quite close to keep the 600 reving up in five when the need arises, and me, this bike makes you to keep it up there most of the it’s just a complete

Get the Triumph out on a track and that’s you will find out it’s potential. I took it to Rockingham circuit for a trackday with Tracks and it was absolutely brilliant! I think I have ever had so fun on any 600 ever, anywhere. This just eats up everything in you can take liberties on any corner, rev it out on the and become the King (or Queen) of the brakers.

It can seriously outperform many larger Superbikes. The combination of the agile chassis, Pirelli Corsa tyres and a hot track was the ticket for a very enjoyable All I can say is that I rode back in the evening a very hapy man a full day on track in 32deg and full leathers!

It was one of the best days I have ever

The Daytona has perfect turn-in, feedback and with those on I can say that I didn’t get a single of a slide in over 70 laps of the circuit. The back-end was truly to the ground on every corner me get the power on very early. The end being so stable let me carry a amount of corner speed as all I really had to be concerned about was the motor spinning up and not to rev-out mid

I started off in the morning by running a too low thinking I needed to keep the up all the time, that soon as the day went on. I found that I run a gear higher because the has such great midrange so I actually managed to go faster as a

Triumph have put together a package with the Daytona 600 the bike is almost in a class of own. With the great and brilliant engine they also added some brakes to compliment everything about the bike. You can honestly on the brakes at the last moment flat out and stop in total not a squirm or any sign of breaking in fact you could actually the front tyre!

The twin 308mm discs, four-pot Nissin calipers, are they have lots of and feel about them and are not at all with their response. I can compare them to the brakes to the Ducati 999S, Brembo series, that’s the only set-up that i can honestly say is near the quality of the Triumph It’s no wonder that the Valmoto race team to keep the standard brakes for and I totally agree with

Triumph have entered the competitive world of the Supersport 600 and gone head to head the best of them. Not only they done this but have created a new benchmark in class. They have up to the opposition with the same four cylinder format, direct comparison by customers the globe. This class is a different game from the market that Triumph has so sucessfull in.

The stakes are high space-age hardware like the CBR600RR, R6 and GSXR600. In an ultra-demanding styling as well as performance be cutting edge, and everyday has to be backed up by race success. The 600 is already winning races, the didn’t make it, but the Daytona 600 that’s for sure.

It will a lot to beat the Daytona 600, a bike for real-world riding.
