Spyshots of new Triumph Daytona 675

I'm still not sold on it. Particularly hate the silver "eye shadow"

I can't stand that new sub-frame.

WTF are they thinking.

Trust me, you do not want that. My buttocks are extremely pale and unsightly, especially in moonlight.

Oh man that "eye shadow" looks just ridiculous. It looked fine as it was.

Is that a built in frame slider right next to the fairing labels?

The 2012 look was the best, why change it?

I'm thinking that the middleship exhaust, slimmer subframe and less complex swingarm should make for 5-6 lbs of weight savings.

And it's not the firs time Triumph applies "makeup" to their bikes, look up the "girlie" Tigers.

Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

I'd have to see it in person, but from all the pictures I've seen so far, I'm not liking it. The current version is gorgeous.

Personally, I prefer the first gen (06-08) looks over the 2nd gen. But both of them are better than the new one.

It's... okay. I wouldn't turn it down if someone were to give me one, but it wouldn't be at the top of my "pretty bikes" list either.

Same here.


I really hate that they changed the tank logo. The old triumph "classic" looking logo was WAY better.

And this new design looks like absolute SHIT. Same with the speed triple..... ditching the round lights? Are you kidding me?


That, and not coming out with a literbike ever. Triumph made SUCH a comeback in the last 10 years and they are just fucking it ALL up.

Wow the older 675s are some of the best looking bikes. This one looks cheezy IMO. I really don't care for the frame, swingarm, and subframe. The silver eye liner is really weird. I miss the undertail too.

The Speed/Street Triple headlights do look a lot better in person when the flyscreen is added. It's grown on me. The new Daytona? Not so much.
