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.
