Triumph Daytona 660 And Daytona 675: Key Differences

After a seven-year hiatus, Triumph has finally made a comeback in the sport bike segment. It’s taken the wraps off the Daytona 660–the company’s new competitor for the crowded middleweight segment. The British giant is trying to encash its iconic ‘Daytona’ moniker here, and it’s only fair to say the 660 has big shoes to fill.

Can the new sport bike do that? That’s exactly what we want to help you with, by telling you the key differences between the Daytona duo. After all, most Daytona 675 fanatics believe the bike fails to live up to the iconic moniker’s heritage.

The Triumph Dayton 660 Makes Considerably Less Power Than The Daytona 675

Triumph Daytona 675RThis is perhaps the most controversial difference between the namesakes. That’s because instead of using its lauded 765cc mill, Triumph has equipped its new Daytona with a 660cc powerhouse. It’s derived from the Trident 660, but tweaked to churn out 93 horsepower and 51 pound-feet. Although a 17 percent increase over the naked, the output is nowhere near the Daytona 675’s figures. To jog your memory, the OG had a 675cc, triple-cylinder powerhouse with 126 horsepower and 55 pound-feet. It also revved to nearly 16,000 RPM, while the 660 only manages 12,650 RPM. In terms of real-world prowess, the 660 promises more tractability. Its peak output kicks in earlier in the rev range than the 675’s peaky delivery and Triumph claims nearly 80 percent torque is available from as low as 3,000 RPM. That being said, the 675 will still be faster in a straight line and off the line.

Hopefully, it’s not a final goodbye
Considering the differences, it’s clear the 660 is nowhere near the 675 replacement we’ve all craved for seven years. But the motorcycle is still impressive enough to deserve a fair chance in the market. So our request to you would be: go check out the motorcycle in person, take it for a spin, and then form your opinions based on what it is. Not for what it should’ve been in your books.
