2011 Triumph Daytona 675R Review - First Ride

In a way, the economic downturn could be viewed as a good thing. If you look at it from the perspective of the motorcycling world, that's when the hectic craze of updating the leanest and meanest sportbikes every two years came to an end.

Yamaha's YZF-R6 and Honda's CBR600RR (and CBR1000RR) have been practically the same for at least four years. Suzuki and Kawasaki have only recently updated their sportbikes, and even Ducati's 1198 (and 1098 before that) is virtually the same.

Triumph, too, is guilty of not updating its supersport machine, the Daytona 675, for some time. Introduced in 2006, five years later and the bike is basically the same. Yes, it got a few minor upgrades in 2009, but hardly enough to call it a major revamp. Honestly, we're not complaining too much. The era of the constant updates kept us on our heels trying to stay current on all the changes. And really, the Daytona 675 is a damn good motorcycle.

But there’s always room for improvement. Enter the 2011 Triumph Daytona 675R.
