2011 Triumph Daytona 675R Leaks Ahead of EICMA 2011 Triumph Daytona 675R 635x412

UPDATE: The 2011 Triumph Daytona 675R will not receive any engine modifications over the base model.

More Triumph goodness has seeped onto the internet this morning, and it’s the 2011 Triumph Daytona 675R sport bike that we get to feast our eyes upon as photos of the sporty triple have been leaked ahead of EICMA. Öhlins forks and shock, radially-mounted Brembo monoblock calipers, a carbon fiber fender, and supposedly an upgraded spec sheet? Yes please.

Triumph’s three-cylinder sport bike has always set itself apart in an market segment dominated by inline-fours and v-twins, and with the 675R being a bit of a looker, we think that trend will continue. No word on pricing or hard performance stats, we might have to wait until EICMA for those. Check the photos after the jump.

    I particularly like the trellis supporting the tailsection. Very pretty :)

    Awesome looking bike, only complaint is the front turn signals, but that wouldn’t stop me from picking one of these babies up because the aftermarket will fix that right up. Can’t wait for specs on this one, and to see if they will make a liter bike version.

    stunning. Return of the homologation special???

    I test rode a SpeedTriple last weekend at the Triumph demo days event. It was fantastic, the best motor I ever revved. So strong and a gorgeous tone. Loads of grunt, loads of power. Handled a dream. I wish I’d gotten to ride the Daytona. If I can ever afford it, this will be my next bike

  4. I don’t think this is going to be a homologation special…if rumors are to be believed, Triumph didn’t even crack open the engine case to make this “R”.

  5. Ken says:

    ohlins forks and shock +brembo brakes and that color scheme is good enough for me to call it an R

    The engine is already putting out great power so why mess with it.

  6. Sean says:

    Paint scheme sadly plays second fiddle to the new limited 848 evo with the red frame and white body. Awwww……

    Way to go TRIUMPH, keep up the good work!

  8. giova says:

    I know they’re trying to compete against ducati, but why copy ducati. The red subrame and the Box looking letters. I like it but I don’t like when they start copying other companies.

    The Daytona 675 is such a beautiful bike it is hard to make it look bad, but this color scheme tries hard. It looks like a cheap wanna-be. Who cares though, there is no reason to keep the street garbage on it anyway – slap some race plastic on this scapel and take it to the track where it belongs! I can assure you that no one will mistake it as a wanna-be out there.

    haven’t seen man ugly motorcycles and I’ve been riding street since I was 12. 45 now and I stll almost NEVER see an ulgy motorcycle…because I can’t see a motorcycle when I’m on it. 8^) Garage queens that get looked are for leisure riders.

  11. ML says:

    Too bad my legs are short and the seat height too high on the daytona. =/

    Plus, aren’t they going to redesign this bike next year? If so, I hope they start offering better forks as a factory option going forward.

    Beautiful bike, though.
