I'm throwing journalistic objectivity aside for a moment to say I love the Triumph Daytona 675. It's a sentiment my fellow Motorcycle.com cohorts share as well. What's not to love about its intoxicating engine and nimble handling? Throw into the mix the up-spec R model with its Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and quickshifter and we can't stop waxing poetic about it.
So when we learned the 2013 Triumph Daytona 675 and 675R would be all-new motorcycles, finally getting a substantial revamp since its 2006 introduction and 2009 update, we wondered how the boys in Hinckley would one-up themselves. Answer: more power!
