Triumph’s naked 675 confirmed
By Chris Newbigging

New bikes

06 March 2007 14:35

After 18 months of denying its existence, MCN can exclusively reveal that the naked version of the Daytona 675 is finally finished. Dealers are now taking orders on the bike – and we’ve got an MCN reader’s receipt to prove it.

At a recent top-secret Triumph dealer conference, the bike was unveiled to dealers in its final form. The styling and mechanical specification are all complete – all that remains is for Triumph to decide the final colour options and a name. ‘Street Triple’ is being mooted as a favourite – dealers are referring to the bike by this name.

The final spec is close to the Daytona – but with styling closely modelled on the Speed Triple 1050.

A price between £5500 and £6000 is likely. This places the Street Triple in its natural territory – much less than the Daytona 675, and slightly more than the all-new but lower spec Hornet 600 (which costs £5495 with ABS). The mystery prototype spotted my MCN in January has been confirmed by an anonymous dealer as the Street Triple, but final pictures have not been taken as yet. See the full story in this week’s MCN, out Wednesday March 7.

Whooo Hooo, I'm not sure why I care, wait, I don't. If the so called Street Triple and the Speed Triple sat side by side I'd still buy speedy. I guess if you didn't have the green the street might make a good choice.

There is no substitute for displacement.

"street triple" is kind of a lame name. Just call it the speed triple 675. Or maybe bring back an old name?

I would buy a 1050 all over again, a 675 just won't have the thrust of the bigger motor. If I could afford more than one bike......it would be on.

How about calling it the Speed Triple Sport?

I'm holding out for "Hurricane".

It's not going to happen, because I'm pretty sure the new Hurricane will be based on the Rocket 3, or possibly the rumored 1600 vertical twin.

But I still think that would be an appropriate name for a naked 675. It's a lot better than "Street Triple", which sounds like a name HD would put on a lameass Sportster clone.

Street Triple is indeed a very lame name. I would go for something like a 'Merlin 675', 'Hurricane 675' or 'street hawk' lol. :hammer: :hammer: :hammer:

"Merlin" 675. Too cool for words.

My Grandfather's name is Merlin.
