2013 Triumph Daytona 675 Captured in Spy Photo
UPDATE: Two new images have emerged.
A photograph of a production-read 2013 Triumph Daytona 675 has emerged, weeks before the revised three-cylinder sportbike’s expected introduction at the 2012 EICMA show in Milan, Italy.
The photograph popped up on the Triumph675.net forum, a member of the Motorcycle.com forum network. The picture shows a new subframe, revised bodywork and the absence of an undertail exhaust.
We’ve previously seen video of the updated D675 undergoing testing in 2011, revealing the new underslung exhaust. The Daytona also likely receives the same new frame and subframe as on the updated 2013 Triumph Street Triple recently revealed at Intermot. Triumph claims the new frame and subframe have fewer welds and weigh less than the previous components.
The Street Triple did not receive any updates to its engine, so it remains to be seen if the Daytona’s 675cc three-cylinder engine has been modified.
More information should be available in the weeks to come before the 2013 Triumph Daytona 675 gets its official unveiling Nov. 13 at EICMA.
