Triumph has added an R model to its popular Daytona 675 line-up for 2011.

Triumph has completed its 2011 model line-up with the introduction of a premium version of its award-winning Daytona 675, the Daytona 675R, at the EICMA show in Milan today.

Following on from the introduction of the new Speed Triple, Thunderbird Storm, America and Speedmaster at last month’s Intermot show, Triumph’s 2011 model range represents the strongest in the company’s 109 year history.

The 2011 Daytona 675R offers a real experience for the sportsbike connoisseur.

Taking the multi award-winning Daytona 675 as its base, the Daytona 675R has been developed in conjunction with Swedish suspension masters Öhlins to deliver the ultimate supersport class machine, dripping with high quality suspension identical to that used in some of the world’s toughest race championships.

The Daytona 675R features Öhlins’ revolutionary race-developed 43mm NIX30 forks, and its MotoGP-developed TTX36 rear suspension unit, while radially-mounted monoblock calipers and radial master cylinder from Italian specialist Brembo were specified to ensure the Daytona 675R also has class-leading stopping power.

Further track-spec items included as standard on the Daytona 675R include a standard-fit quickshifter and a host of carbon fibre bodywork, including hugger, silencer heat shield and front mudguard.

The Daytona 675R also utilizes the Daytona 675’s comprehensive instrumentation, which includes a lap timer and programmable gear change lights.

Triumph also launched its eagerly awaited Tiger 800 and Tiger 800XC adventure touring models at EICMA today.
