Triumph Daytona 675SE
The 675cc sports bike from Hinckley has just been given the 'special edition' treatment thanks to the new parts and a trick new look

British motorcycle maker Triumph is about to unleash another special edition model in Australia, the 2010 Daytona 675SE.
On sale in August, the 2010 675SE follows on from the special edition Daytona 675 released in 2009, and gets a trick-looking blue frame, swingarm and subframe, plus a white colour scheme ('pearl white' and 'sparkle blue' in Triumph talk), giving the bike with a unique appeal.

Better yet it comes with a grand's worth of extra kit.

Priced at $15,290 before onroad costs are added, the Daytona 675SE features white striped wheels and race-inspired adjustable brake and clutch levers to add a motorsports look and feel
These levers are machined with alloy and Triumph has also added a smattering of carbon fibre parts from its accessories catalogue to add some icing to this high performance cake. Things like a heat shield, cockpit infills, exhaust cap and a rear wheel hugger are all carbon fibre.

The engine of the 2010 Daytona 675SE remains unchanged from the standard model, a 675cc three-cylinder engine that cranks out 126hp (93kW) at 12,600rpm. The liquid-cooled, 12-valve, DOHC, in-line three-cylinder unit develops with a healthy 72Nm of torque at 11,700rpm.
Chassis systems for the 675SE are the same as the regular Daytona 675 models, which comprise "highly sophisticated and adjustable suspension front and rear" according to Triumph. Both front and rear suspension systems are adjustable for high and low speed compression damping which are been claimed to provide "unparalleled levels of control on the track while offering a plush ride on rough road surfaces"
