2013 Triumph Daytona 675R: A Bargain Racer for $13,499 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R 08 635x423

Like the 2013 Triumph Daytona 675, the “R” model of Britain’s three-cylinder supersport has gotten a number of refinements and changes for the new model year. Virtually every aspect of the Triumph Daytona 675 has been seen to, and we won’t rehash those changes here (head over to our article on the base model for the full-monty).

Commanding a $1,900 premium over the base model, the 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R adds a TTX rear shock and NIX30 inverted forks to the mix, along with a new quick shifter, higher-spec Brembo monobloc brakes, and some carbon fiber bits.

Would we spend the extra green for the Daytona 675R over the base model? Yup, but the better question is whether you would buy the Triumph Daytona 675R over the MV Agusta F3. Decisions, decisions, decisions. Look for the 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R in dealerships come February 2013.

    @Sixty7:

    WOW…yes, it does…..very much so the last 2/3 front to back.

    The front overhangs too much and the BLUNT nose…..i can’t get over it.
    I like better the old acute front end…new one looks like ice melting.
    Boy…those pegs look sky high, like for a hockey size rider (Pedrosa).

    Mechanically…….i friggin love it. For anyone looking for a reasonable track bike this seems like a good solid choice (MSRP aside, lol).

    Man, really lookin foward to getting a 2013 Daytona R, but i just cant justify spending money on this.
    It does nothing for me.

    The lines are awkward, subframe ugly, the low exhaust I am fine with, its more the aesthetics that hurt the bike.

    I am going to, hopefully, track down a new or low mileage 2012 675R and enjoy it.

    I bought a 2012 model in July and it’s the most perfect bike ever!!!

    I’ve never see an R6 with Ohlins forks and brembo monobloc calipres before.

    Who cares what it looks like. Form follows function and this thing’s a weapon!

    Agree with groves174
