Triumph Daytona 675 scoops Supertest and Masterbike awards again!
May 12, 2007 Triumph's Daytona 675 has continued its insatiable award-winning appetite with victory in both the Supertest and Masterbike multi-bike comparison tests for the second year running. Both of the independent tests, held on Spanish racetracks, saw the Daytona 675 reign supreme despite being unchanged since its launch in 2006, a true testament to the bike's inherent qualities.
In Supertest, held at Almeria, the 15-member judging panel rated the Daytona 675 No. 1 in the engine flexibility, throttle response, chassis handling, chassis brakes, equipment and price categories, which was more than enough to see it emerge the overall winner.
Following on from the success at Supertest, the Daytona 675 secured yet another "Best Supersport" title at the Masterbike test in Jerez, defeating the all-new Honda CBR600RR by a significant margin.
Masterbike is an impartial assessment organised by Spanish magazine Motociclismo, and has quickly developed into the world's supreme sportsbike comparo. It is judged on by 16 international motorcycle magazines.
