Don’t call them supersports or racer-replicas. The new breed of middleweight sportbikes are designed to be accessible, easy to use and affordable machines that are still fast, fun, and more than capable of delivering a good time to a rider, be it on a twisty back road or on a commute or weekend ride.

Triumph held the global launch of its new Daytona 600 sportbike on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. With a solid chassis, sporty but comfortable ergonomics, and an enthusiastic engine, the Daytona is Triumph’s entry into the suddenly revived middleweight sporty motorcycle category. With a street-oriented suite of electronic rider aids, available upgrades like heated grips, and nearly 95 horsepower on hand, the bike represents a real value at its suggested retail price of $9,195.

More than 100 miles of twisty two-lane in the glorious Spanish sun gave the Roadracing World Editor at Large (that’s me) a solid insight into how well Triumph has hit the mark. Read about the bike details and how it is to ride in an upcoming issue of Roadracing World & Motorcycle Technology magazine!
