2009 Triumph Daytona 675SE Revealed


It won’t take a degree in rocket propulsion to guess that the ‘SE’ lettering Triumph has slapped on the end of the 675 model code is for ‘Special Edition’, but if you’ve got just such a qualification and that was your guess, good for you sport.

With a new pearl white colour scheme and a sparkle blue frame (it may be sparkly, but blue means it’s okay for boys), Triumph’s special edition version of the Daytona 675 has been created to give the acclaimed bike a fresh new look.


Before the hardcore performance nuts among you get too excited, the 675SE is a purely aesthetic update, with the special edition powered by the same 93kW (125hp) 675cc three-cylinder as the 675.

There’s a wide range of accessories to go with the 675SE, including lightweight carbon fibre components, a ‘plug-and-play’ quick shifter set and race-style rear footrests and silencers, developed with Italian race specialists Arrow Special Parts.

The Daytona 675SE will arrive in dealerships in August, with pricing to be confirmed.
