Triumph Commemorating Daytona 200 Win With 675R “Eslick Edition”
Triumph is celebrating its historic Daytona 200 win with Danny Eslick and the #69 Riders Discount Racing team by offering 47 custom motorcycles accessorized for track day riding. Each motorcycle is instantly recognizable with commemorative paint and graphics and features performance accessories that are identical to those used on the race-winning bike.
Available exclusively through Triumph dealers in the United States and Canada, Riders Discount is offering 47 of these custom motorcycles to commemorate each year since Triumph last won the Daytona 200 with Gary Nixon in 1967.
Each 675R Eslick Edition motorcycle is individually numbered, hand signed by Danny Eslick, customized with a combination of Triumph Genuine Accessories and hand selected aftermarket accessories, and comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity. The custom paint features the authentic Riders Discount Racing and AMA Pro Road Racing sponsor decals as used on the Daytona 200-winning bike.
Standard accessories include Attack Performance rear sets, Renthal grips and sprockets, as well as a 520 DID ERV3 gold chain. Also included are many Triumph Genuine Accessories, which include Lower Chain Guard, Red Anodized Chain Adjustment Blocks, Paddock Stand Bobbins, Engine Cover Kit, Seat Cowl Kit, Billet Oil Filler Cap and Oil Dipstick which are pre-drilled to be safety wired for track day and race riding.
Customers also can order an optional Performance Package from Riders Discount that increases horsepower, reduces weight, and further improves handling. The package will include a DynoJet Power Commander V with custom fuel map developed for track use by Riders Discount Racing, an aftermarket intake and exhaust system, and Dunlop Q3 tires developed in racing competition and popular with track day riders.
The optional Performance Package is available only with the purchase of a 2014 Daytona 675R Eslick Edition motorcycle. MSRP and availability will be announced at a later date.
