It’s finally happening, Triumph Motorcycles was seen testing the all-new Daytona 660 on open roads in Europe, signalling the arrival of a new entry-level sportbike. 

  • The limited-edition Triumph Daytona 765 Moto2 introduced four years ago was the last sighting of the iconic machine. 
  • The latest spyshot confirms the arrival of an all-new Daytona 660 that shares the same engine with the Trident and Tiger Sport 660.

At the heart of the matter is the shared powerplant that underpins the Daytona 660, a 660cc triple engine whose potency has already been demonstrated in the Trident 660 and Tiger Sport 660. With a claimed output of 81 horsepower @ 10,250 rpm, complemented by a robust torque of 63Nm @ 6,250 rpm, this engine configuration is set to awaken the road with its presence. This raw power is tamed by a well-calibrated six-speed gearbox, ensuring seamless transitions in the pursuit of dynamic performance.

A closer examination of the spy photos published by RideApart reveals a remarkable continuity in components across the Trident 660, Tiger Sport 660, and the upcoming Daytona 660. The familiar sight of the 17-inch cast aluminum wheels, the distinctive exhaust (with a test-specific extension perhaps hinting at ongoing adjustments), and the signature mirrors collectively form a nexus of continuity. The rear section and tail, reminiscent of its stablemates, further underscore the design harmony within the Triumph 660 family.

Notably, the front fork appears to be conserved from the previous models, reflecting the commitment to engineering excellence that Triumph upholds. Drawing cues from the Tiger Sport 660, the Daytona 660’s dashboard layout bears a resemblance to the former’s configuration, a decision that resonates with the sporty demeanor the Daytona line embodies. The ergonomics have been calibrated for an upright posture, balancing agility with rider comfort.

In terms of aesthetics, the bodywork echoes a logical progression from the last iteration of the Daytona, retaining the captivating headlight and cowl design elements that were last witnessed in 2019. While official details remain elusive due to the covert nature of these snapshots, it’s prudent to deduce that the Daytona 660 will build upon the legacy of its predecessors.

In terms of pricing, we expect the Daytona 660 to priced above the Trident and Tiger Sport 660.

  • Ducati mungkin sekali akan merombak semula motosikal Hypermotard bagi tahun 2019.
  • Ia pasti akan tampil sedia untuk piawaian emisi Euro5 yang akan dikuatkuasa bermula tahun 2020.
  • Walaupun masih belum disahkan lagi, sudah ada desas desus mengatakan yang enjin baharunya akan dilengkapi dengan DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing).


  • Ducati could be revamping the Hypermotard for 2019.

  • It should be ready for Euro 5 emissions standard since it will be implemented in 2020.

  • While it is not confirmed, there is speculation that the new engine will be equipped with DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing).

A revamped Ducati Hypermotard has been caught undergoing road trials. Could it be released for 2019?

Looking at the spy shot, the “new” bike looks to have a new engine, styling changes and twin underseat exhaust silencers.

According to MCN, the exhausts are the obvious sign that the new Hypermotard will comply with the Euro 5 emissions standards that’s set to be introduced in 2020. The new rulings are even tougher on carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and noise emissions.

Hence, the new Hypermotard’s exhaust system separates the baffles and catalytic convertor rather than having both in the same unit. The new Supersport and Multistrada may also follow this same route.

Speaking of the new Multistrada 1260, the Hypermotard’s engine may just be equipped with DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) too since the system allows for better efficiency throughout the rev range.

Other takeaways from the spy photo are a new steel trellis subframe which replaces the previous one-piece cast unit, the clutch and alternator covers beefed up for more sound-proofing, and Marzocchi forks and Sachs rear monoshock.

Expect the 2019 Hypermotard to be unveiled at EICMA.
