Triumph Daytona 675 Track Bike Build

I purchased a 2012 Triumph Daytona 675 base model sportbike in 2011 at Thanksgiving primarily for track use. I thought I might use it for occasional street use, but the fact is that the track has it’s own requirements (depending on your skill level) and I decided to save myself the trouble and leave the bike in purely track form.

The bike is an excellent piece of equipment and is easily the best cornering motorcycle I have ever ridden. It is narrow like a V-twin but has much of the characteristic of an inline 4 engine configuration; the 675 is triple.

Much has been written on various forums and magazines, etc about the benefits (or not) of buying Triumph’s 675 R model. I was fortunate enough to buy the base and install true Road and Track Ohlins fork internals and rear TTX shock. In my particular case, I came out ahead – in fact, ahead of the R version as the R does not have Road and Track equipment.

Stay tuned for pictures and more information on what it takes to make your bike track ready – it can be as simple or as complicated as you wish to make it.
