Triumph Daytona 660 has been finally revealed by the brand after it was teased last month. The 660cc engine in this bike is said to be in its most powerful form yet making 95 hp and 69 Nm.
Triumph Daytona 660 – Highlights
The Daytona 660 gets full fairings just like its other siblings, however, the riding posture is relaxed and doesn’t demand the rider to go full spine-bending aerodynamics. It’s all thanks to the clip-on handlebars which are placed above the forks and the footpegs being placed perfectly, the riding position is no doubt sporty, yet comfortable.
The Split seats are also larger than any conventional superbike like the Kawasakis and Suzukis and should be comfortable for both rider and pillion. Maybe the bike is designed keeping in mind that many people ride sports bikes almost daily nowadays. The seat height also stands at 810 mm, meaning it has gone up by 5 mm over the Trident.
The main frame and most of the cycle parts are carried over from the older Daytona, however, there are some important updates. The Daytona 660 now carries Triumph-branded radially mounted calipers and weighs 201 kg. The bike also gets a sports riding mode along with Road and Rain modes on its two other 660 siblings.
The Triumph Daytona 660 costs 8,595 pounds in the UK which is approximately Rs 9.09 lakh and is priced above the Trident 660 which costs 7,895 pounds which is approx Rs 8.35 lakh. Now, the Bike has a high chance of coming to India since Triumph retails almost its entire global lineup here. Once launched, the new Daytona will go up against the Honda CBR650R, which is also expected to make a comeback soon,
