Triumph Daytona 660

Triumph Daytona 660

It’s been a bit of a dream really, but me, yep lil ol’ me flew out with Triumph to test ride the all new Daytona 660. Now this being a soft version of a sports bike, was right up my ally as I love to share with you my real thoughts as someone newer to the industry and with maybe a little less knowledge than some of the amazing petrol-heads I got the honour of riding with. My review was more experience based, on how I felt in the ‘hands’ (or wheels I should say) of this bike.

My thoughts on the Daytona 660.
Apart from the obvious stunning visage of the bike, let me give you my thoughts.
As someone who has only been riding a short while, this might be a helpful insight for some of you more greenies like myself.

If the Daytona 660 has caught your eye, then you are probably more interested in a sports bike. It’s almost like a soft launch into the super sports world. This bike sounds like a dream to start with. It is available in 3 stunning colour ways. It obviously is a bit of an attention seeker (especially in the carnivore red). Similar to my R7, in position and agility it’s a great entry-level sport bike with that added comfort. With a 3 cylinder engine that delivers 94 hoesepower and 51ft-lb of torque, it is quick off the mark. This bike has a wonderful level of low-down torque, allowing you to immediately immerse yourself into your ride. The ride is very comfortable thanks to the height of the bars, meaning it is more a sit up position rather than the older style daytona.

With three rider modes, it’s truly built to take on any road. The sports mode was my favourite, which had a heightened level of responsiveness, allowing it to feel nippier and extremely agile.

One thing I would say is that in comparison to other bikes I’ve ridden of a similar category, it could have done with a little more weight to the front to aid a more aggressive riding style.

At a great entry point of £8.5K it’s a reasonably priced beautiful bike.
