The end of the Daytona 675? This is not a good way to start 2016! There’s been a few sites reporting insider information stating that Triumph are going to drop our triples in favour of the classic and adventure market. As we all know the sports bike market is competitive and with competition comes high overheads. That being said the 675cc engine has been the top of it’s game ever since the Daytona was launched 2006/2007.
We have our fingers crossed that the rumours are just rumours! This isn’t the first time the Daytona 675 has been rumoured to be ‘discountinued’ and lets hope it’s not the last. More information can be found here.
In other news, just a little bit late but in September 2015 Triumph announced a Jet Black variant of the Street Triple RX. I’m sure we don’t need to re-cap the synopsis of the Street Triple RX, but if you’re anything like us; a little slow on the ball here’s an extract from Triumphs web site “The highest-spec variant of our Street Triple R, its unique visual features include a razor-sharp profile and supersports bodywork, with flyscreen and belly pan as standard. The Street Triple Rx is finished with Diablo Red and Matt Aluminium Silver or Jet Black paint work, striking red wheels and fitted with a quickshifter to deliver a ride that lives up to the looks.”
It looks awesome in black, but then all Triumph 675’s look awesome!
