Triumph Daytona 660 CONFIRMED!

Updated: Jan 11

That's right folks! The Triumph Daytona has officially been confirmed to be making a comeback in 2024 with an all-new design based on the incredibly popular Trident platform.

As we’ve long suspected, Triumph is bringing the Daytona nameplate back for 2024 with the new bike entering the market at a crucial time for the category.

The 2024 Triumph Daytona has officially been confirmed to return in 2024 with an all-new design based on the incredibly popular Trident platform rather than the traditional Street Triple base of past Daytona models. 

It makes sense considering the market appeal of the Supersports segment has been on the decline for a number of years, with riders favouring more practical bikes over the hard-edged track weapons the Supersports class has evolved into. 

Triumph says this is because, with the new Daytona, they are aiming for a more mainstream offering along the lines of the Kawasaki Ninja 650 with the ability to be easily used every day while still being able to take on the other bikes in the segment, namely the Aprilia RS660, Yamaha YZF-R7 and the soon to arrive Suzuki GSX-8R.

As per tradition, the Daytona 660 is propelled by a Triumph triple-cylinder engine which in Daytona trim produces ​​95PS of peak power and 69Nm of peak torque - an increase of 17% more power and 9% more torque than the unrestricted Trident. That comes thanks to upgraded internals including a new crank, camshaft with new profiles, new cylinder head, new pistons and new valve gears.

Peak power is achieved at 11,250rpm with the redline set at 12,650rpm. Triumph says more than 80 percent of the Daytona’s 69Nm of peak torque is available from just 3,125rpm delivering responsive sporty and fully usable performance. Peak torque itself is achieved at 8,250rpm.

Triumph Mororcycles New Zealand has confirmed that both the full power and LAMS versions of the Daytona 660 are heading to our shores. That is welcome news to many Triumph triple fans who have long hoped for the Trident and Tiger Sport 660 to be offered in full power guise.

Triumph says the engine tune of the Daytona 660 provides a smooth, responsive and linear delivery with the perfect combination of low-down torque, mid-range and top-end power. Along with the extra power over the Trident, the Daytona 660 also scores a brand-new exhaust, creating an unmistakable soundtrack.

Fuel comes via a 14-litre fuel tank, and with a claimed fuel economy of 4.9 litres per 100km should see a range around the 285km mark.

Over in the chassis department, and in keeping with the aim of an attainable and usable sport bike the new Daytona features an 810mm seat height with a narrow standover while the handlebar and footpeg position have been designed with comfort rather than track dominance in mind. 

Triumph has fitted the Daytona 660 with quality Showa non-adjustable upside-down big piston 41mm forks at the front and a Showa preload adjustable monoshock RSU to manage bumps in the road.  

Performing stopping duties for the 201 kilo Daytona are a pair of Triumph branded radial four-piston brakes with twin 310mm discs and braided brake lines, while the lightweight 17-inch rims are paired with Michelin’s new Power 6 tyres to keep the Daytona stuck to the road.

Tech-wise, the Daytona ships with the mandatory ABS braking system in play with the addition of three rider modes  (Sport, Road and Rain) and switchable traction control thanks to the inclusion of a ride-by-wire throttle.

Each rider mode offers a different throttle response and level of traction control intervention, with Sport mode providing the most reactive throttle response for full-on road rides or track sessions. The traction control system can also be turned off using the instrument menu for riders who prefer complete freedom from electronic intervention.

This is all controlled through multi-functional instruments that feature a colour TFT screen integrated into a white-on-black LCD display. As an optional accessory, the Daytona can be equipped with the My Triumph Connectivity System which enables turn-by-turn navigation plus phone and music interaction. 

As always, Triumph will debut the Daytona with a number of other accessories ready to fit. Currently, there are over 30 Genuine Triumph Accessories available, all engineered alongside the motorcycle, tested to the same high standards, and carrying the same two-year unlimited mileage warranty as the new Daytona itself.

New Zealand pricing and availability are yet to be announced by Triumph Motorcycles New Zealand.
