Riders in next year's Triumph Triple Challenge will get the all-new Daytona 675R to race next season.
Following the launch of the UK manufacturer’s latest three-cylinder supersport machine at the EICMA Milan Motorcycle show the involvement of the all–new machine will add even more excitement to the British Superbike support series.
Re-designed from the ground up, the new Daytona 675R features a brand new engine and frame, enhancements to its suspension, transmission and exhaust system, as well as a fresh new look. The result is a bike which is 1.5kg lighter, offers more power, an extended rev range and increased agility. The 2013 R model also benefits from new lightweight wheels, a slip-assist clutch and high-spec Öhlins suspension.
Tony Scott, director at T3 Racing and organiser of the TTC, said: “The introduction of the new Daytona 675R next year is a really exciting step for the championship. After six years using the standard model the move up to the lighter, more powerful 2013 Daytona 675R is one that all of our riders will relish.
“The new bike offers greater performance and handling which will I am sure attract even more riders into the championship and help us to continue to deliver exhilarating racing. The TTC remains the most competitive one make series in the UK and I know the new bike will help to cement this.”
