The Triumph Daytona 660 is a mid-size marvel blending 94 horsepower, agile handling, performance, and advanced tech.
Triumph Motorcycles is setting a new benchmark in the middleweight sport bike category by introducing the Triumph Daytona 660. The Daytona 660 ushers in a new era of sport bike performance with its 660cc triple engine, delivering 94 horsepower and 51 foot-pounds of torque, a 17% power increase, and 9% more torque than the Triumph Trident 660. The exhaust features a three-into-one system with a compact underslung silencer and stainless steel end cap.
The Daytona 660 has clip-on bars and pegs that provide comfort and cornering clearance for dynamic sport riding. The natural riding position offers feedback and comfort for long rides. It also has superb control in urban environments with light steering. The rider seat height is 31.88 inches (810mm) with a narrow stand-over. An accessory low seat is also available, lowering the height by .98 inches (25mm) to 30.9 inches (785mm).
The bike comes equipped with top-quality Showa 1.61″ (41mm) upside-down, big-piston front forks, and a Showa rear shock with remote preload adjustment, allowing for quick set-up alterations. The Daytona 660 features lightweight five-spoked cast aluminum wheels that keep rotating mass low, improving responsive handling and suspension performance. Michelin’s new high-specification Power 6 tires are fitted as standard. Braking components include twin four-piston radial calipers paired with lightweight 310mm discs and fed by braided lines, plus a Continental ABS modulator.
The ride-by-wire throttle delivers three riding modes: sport, road, and rain. Riders can deactivate the traction control system through the instrument menu. The Emergency Deceleration Warning system is an innovative addition, enhancing safety by alerting other road users during heavy braking. The compact multi-functional instruments feature a color TFT screen compatible with the accessory fit My Triumph Connectivity System. All functions are displayed on the TFT screen and controlled via the switchgear at the handlebar.
“The 660 has all the attitude and agility you’d expect from the Daytona name, and brings with it the thrilling, useable, real-world performance, and all-day comfort that riders today are looking for. We are excited by the impact the Daytona 660 is going to have on the growing middleweight sports world.” – Steve Sargent, Triumph’s Chief Product Officer.
The Daytona 660 carries the distinctive Triumph Daytona DNA with a fresh, aggressive stance and updated elements. Its twin LED headlights, minimal bodywork, and contoured LED taillight amplify its athletic profile. Available in three color options, each bike is decorated with a bold “660”.
Priced starting at $9,195.00, the Triumph Daytona 660 is scheduled to be available in dealers in March 2024. However, you can check out the new Daytona 660 in person before it hits the dealership floor at the Triumph British Invasion tour.
