The current generation Triumph Daytona 675 is at the end of its lifecycle, as a new three-cylinder supersport is expected to debut from the British brand later this fall. Accordingly, Triumph is keen on clearing out its inventory of Daytona’s, and has put together the 2012 Triumph Daytona 675 Sulphur Yellow (note the very British -ph spelling).

As the name denotes, the bike is a bright yellow (just like the element sulfur, note: the freedom -f American spelling), but beyond the bodywork comes the addition of color-matched pinstriped rims, a carbon fiber mudguard, carbon fiber instrument accents, a carbon fiber exhaust heat shield, a quickshifter, and aluminum billet levers.

Pricing on the 2012 Triumph Daytona 675 Sulphur Yellow is expected to be the key selling point of the machine, at least it will be abroad. Commanding only a £275 premium over the base model in the UK, the Sulphur Yellow is another pretty good bargain from Triumph for British-biased riders.

With the base model Daytona 675 just a dollar shy of $11,000 here in the US, we would expect to see the Daytona 675 Sulphur Yellow carryover the same savings domestically on the extra bling parts, with pricing $11,500 or less here in the United States.

    Fugly.

  4. No…its PHugly (British spelling)

    For special additions, the white/blue combo they had going was miles ahead of this. My triumph is yellow, but I find this shade much less appealing.

  6. Damo says:

    I like it, but is it too much to ask that Triumph give us a proper British Racing Green bike? Maybe with a nice white skunk stripe?

    meh, some people have absolutly zero taste in colours for their paint job. I find the sulphur yellow to be rather fetching. Far nicer than some of the colour choices coming out of bolonga or millwaukee.
    p.s. cheerfully happy with a blue 09 ninjette and a metallic burgandy gl1000.

    @Damo
    Could always paint one yourself. But I do agree, would be a great color combo.

    Getting OLD HERE Triumph ! …The “new” 675 can’t get here SOON enough…and by what i have seen it won’t be ALL THAT like when the first 675 came out…unless they changed it AGAIN from the last “spied” test mule.

    I still dream of a heavy weight ‘Tona and Speed Triple sharing the same hardware (1200 Triple, Frame and Suspension(s))…..maybe after they show the new Trophy this coming Winter ? I could settle for a more road oriented Xplorer 1200 (17″ front wheel)…lol.

    A man can dream………….a man can dream…SIGH.
