These are not your father's Triumphs. Nor your grandfather's. The new Daytona 675s are hard-charging English metal designed to go head to head with their Italian, German and Japanese counterparts.
The 2013s are running with an all-new triple-cylinder motor that winds the tachometer up a lot higher than earlier models -- to a redline above 14,000, I'm told -- as well as some newly kitted suspension. The machine also weighs less and is expected to deliver better handling than its predecessors.
