Triumph Daytona 660 Carnival Red Colour
Triumph Daytona 660 has been launched for European buyers at a starting price of EUR 10,045 (around Rs 8.98 lakh based on current exchange rates.) The middleweight sports motorcycle from the British automaker has revived the legendary name that was associated with the motorcycle known for its capabilities and dynamic ride. However, all of this has been presented with a modern look and design. Additionally, the motorcycle is expected to be launched soon in India and has already been listed on the brand's website.
The new Triumph Daytona is significantly different when compared to the previous 675 cc version. The motorcycle comes with an aggressive design complemented by split LED headlights. Moving ahead the bike has sharp lines along with a muscular tank. All of this contributes to controlling and optimising the airflow. This design is complemented by colours like Snowdonia White, Satin Granite, and Carnival Red.
For rider comfort, the British manufacturer has equipped the motorcycle with multiple features like a TFT with smartphone connectivity which enables turn-by-turn navigation along with phone and music interaction, LED lights, and more. Additionally, the motorcycle offers three ride modes- Sport, Road, and Rain.
Based on the tubular steel frame, the motorcycle comes with Showa upside-down forks and rear suspension with preload adjustment. The braking responsibility is handled by twin 310 mm front disc brakes and a single 220 mm rear disc. The brakes are paired with 17-inch wheels. The five-spoked wheels are made out of cast aluminum to keep the weight in control.
The Triumph Daytona 660 is powered by a 660cc liquid-cooled, inline 3-cylinder engine. The engine churns out 93 bhp of power and 69 of peak torque. This unit is paired with a 6-speed wet, multi-plate clutch with slip & assist feature. When launched in India, the motorcycle will compete against the likes of the Honda CBR650R, Yamaha R7, and Kawasaki Ninja 650.
