Daytona 675 scores fourth straight Supertest win!!


by Marc Cantin ,

Triumph's groundbreaking Daytona 675 sports machine has lifted the prestigious Supertest 'King of Supersports' award for an unprecedented fourth year in a row.

The event, a collaboration between some of the world's leading motorcycle publications, saw the magazines send their fastest testers to the Almeria circuit in Spain for a back-to-back comparison of the latest sports bikes on a standard specification tyre. Once again, the three-cylinder Triumph proved quicker than the Japanese machines to remain undefeated in the competition, having won first prize every year since the bike's introduction in 2006.

Further confirmation of the updated-for-2009 Daytona 675's superiority came from British weekly newspaper Motorcycle News, which not only declared the Daytona 675 as the best supersport class bike, but the best sports machine of any capacity on the market. In a demanding 2,000 mile comparison test on the iconic Isle of Man TT course, the Triumph was judged superior to the latest 1,000cc offerings from Aprilia, KTM and Yamaha, which MCN had deemed the best in their respective classes.
