2005 Triumph Daytona 650
More cubes equal more real-road fun for Hinckley’s sporting middleweight
By Mark Gardiner , Alan Cathcart , Roland Brown

It seems strict adherence to displacement in the 600 class has become a touch passé of late. In 2003, Kawasaki built street riders a 636cc version of its ZX-6R . For ’05, Triumph has followed suit, blessing its latest sporting middleweight with the magical displacement of the Meriden factory’s venerable ’60s-era Bonneville—650cc. The result is something to hoist a pint about, where stoplight-to-stoplight street riding is concerned.

Triumph boosted the Daytona’s displacement the old-fashioned way—by stroking the engine. Stroke—the distance each piston moves from top dead center to bottom dead center—was increased 3.1mm for a total volume of 646cc. Triumph claims the added size allows the 16-valve, DOHC inline-four to make a claimed 112 horsepower and 51 pound-feet of torque. Those peak figures are only slightly different from the previous mill’s, but the new motor’s midrange is much stronger.

The issue is much like Honda and the 954, it cheaper to bore the engine once over then to have to reengineer a new cylinder heads and pistons. The 954 is once over from the 929.

ooooo i'm telling, Chiny :lol

Those numbers are nice considering my stock 750 puts out like 120hp/55lbs of torque. I am sure with an exhaust and a few other other mods that that bike will be kicking ass. Too bad triumps suck :lol
