Triumph rollout: New Daytona 675, 675R
The new Triumph Daytonas are hard-charging English metal.

These are not your father’s Triumphs. Nor your grandfather’s. The new Daytona 675s are hard-charging English metal designed to go head to head with their Italian, German and Japanese counterparts.

The 2013s are running with an all-new triple-cylinder motor that winds the tachometer up a lot higher than earlier models -- to a redline above 14,000, I’m told -- as well as some newly kitted suspension. The machine also weighs less and is expected to deliver better handling than its predecessors.

They’ll be in stores in February with reported price tags of $11,599 for the 675 and $13,499 for the 675R.


Check out the accompanying gallery for more shots of the dramatic new models, unveiled this week in conjunction with the EICMA international motorcycle show in Milan.
