        The smell of the burning brush lingered far after the flames and smoke had disappeared from the mirrors. Farmers were torching the underbrush torn from fields, clearing the way for the next crops grown in the countryside inland of Benidorm, on the Mediterranean coast of Spain.  I reflected that the only sense I could devote to the phenomenon was smell; I had no extra time or bandwidth for sightseeing. We were burning through the roller-coaster two-lane roads in the local mountains, slashing past the fields as we sampled Triumph’s newest sportbike, the 2024 Daytona 660, at the global launch of the new machine.

Read about the details of the company’s latest creation in the April issue of Roadracing World!
