Triumph has launched the Daytona 660 in the European market and it is priced at EUR 10,045 (approximately Rs. 8.98 lakh sans taxes). The British marquee will bring the bike to India too very soon and here is what we know about it.
Unlike the previous 675cc version, the new Triumph Daytona 660 is more of a sport-tourer. While it boasts an aggressive and sporty design, the new Daytona 660’s rider triangle seems slightly more relaxed than its predecessor and could be better suited for touring as well. It features split LED headlights with a transparent visor above. Triumph will offer the Daytona 660 in three paint schemes – Snowdonia White, Satin Granite, and Carnival Red.
Powering the new Daytona 660 is a 660cc inline three-cylinder engine with a six-speed gearbox. It belts out 95bhp and 69Nm and the redline is set at 12,650rpm. The motor is nestled in a steel perimeter frame suspended on Showa 41mm USD front forks and a preload adjustable Showa monoshock. Then, its braking hardware includes twin 310mm front discs and a single 220mm rear disc. These are mounted on 17-inch alloys wrapped in a 120/70 front and a 180/55 rear tyre.
The list of features includes three ride modes – Sport, Road, and Rain – traction control, and ABS. Triumph has offered full LED illumination, and a TFT with smartphone connectivity on the Daytona 660.
The Triumph Daytona 660 could be launched in India at the end of February or mid-March 2024. Its asking price could be around 9 to 9.25 lakh, ex-showroom. Once here, the Daytona 660 will rival the Kawasaki Ninja 650, the Honda CBR650R, and the Yamaha R7 which is also expected to debut soon.
