Spy Video of Updated Triumph Daytona 675 Testing
MCN has released a video of what appears to be an updated Triumph Daytona 675 undergoing road testing.
Filmed by an MCN reader near Triumph’s Hinckley factory, the video quality isn’t very high, but we can see some details from the enhanced screenshot above (click to see a larger version).
The most noticeable change is the placement of the exhaust. The test mule has a short, side-mounted exhaust, visible below the rider’s right foot, instead of the current model’s underseat exhaust. The swingarm also appears to have a new design, likely to accommodate the new exhaust placement. Other visible updates include a new tail, six-spoke wheels instead of the five-spoke wheels on the 2011 D675.
Check out the video after the jump, along with a picture of the 2011 Triumph Daytona 675 for comparison.
