This is the maintenance schedule and service intervals for the Triumph Daytona 675R, Triumph’s last foray into track bikes available to the general public (before retiring them and later introducing the super-exclusive Triumph Moto2 765).
Here are all our Triumph Daytona maintenance schedules:
- Triumph Daytona 955i (1999-2006)
- Triumph Daytona 675 1st gen (2006-2008)
- Triumph Daytona 675 1st gen V2 (2009-2012) (Better brakes, different engine tuning for more torque/power)
- Triumph Daytona 675R 1st gen (2011-2012) (Öhlins front and rear, Brembo front calipers)
- Triumph Daytona 675 2nd gen (2013-2017) (Shorter stroke motor, revised style)
- Triumph Daytona 675R 2nd gen (2013-2017) (Brembo/Öhlins, shorter stroke motor)
- Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 (2020) (Limited edition)
The Daytona 675R was made in this incarnation between 2013 and 2017, succeeding the earlier 2011-12 Daytona 675R. Like its predecessor, the 2013-2017 Daytona 675R is powered by a 675cc inline three-cylinder engine, a “triple”, though in this generation with a shorter stroke engine and a more aggressive 13.1:1 compression ratio. At peak, this Daytona makes 95 kW / 128 PS at 125000 rpm, or peak torque of 75 Nm / 55 ft-lb at 11900 rpm.
Final drive is via a wet clutch, six-speed transmission, and chain drive.
The Daytona 675R is distinct from the base model 2013-2017 Daytona 675 firstly because of its suspension — it has Öhlins front and rear suspension, in contrast with the (still competent) KYB fully adjustable suspension on the base model — and secondly its front brakes, which are Brembo calipers.
The Triumph Daytona 675R was retired after this model, as efforts went into high-end Street Triple bikes, like the 765cc 2017 Triumph Street Triple RS.

About the Triumph Daytona 675R (2013-2017)
The Triumph Daytona 675 really stole the show when the first gen 2006 Triumph Daytona appeared. It was an unbeatable proposition — a British bike beating the Japanese 600-class at a game they had dominated for a long time. And the 2013-2017 Daytona 675R is the best of the class — but sadly, also the last, as the 600 class of motorcycles has been in steady decline for a while.
The Triumph Daytona 675R built between 2013-2017 has the same engine capacity as its predecessors, but with a different engine configuration. As manufacturers are wont to do to increase power, Triumph increased the bore by 2mm and dropped the stroke by a commensurate amount, letting the new 675 engine rev higher than ever — the rev limiter cut-off is 14400 rpm, over 1000 rpm over the original 675’s block.
In base trim, the Daytona 675R makes 95 kW / 128 bhp at 12500 rpm, with peak torque of 75 Nm (55 ft-lb) coming on at 11900 rpm.
By those figures, it’s definitely a sportbike engine. But don’t be fooled — the 675R makes plenty of torque down low! In fact, it makes over 80% of its torque at 3500 rpm. This is not something you can say of most middleweight sportbikes. And that’s what makes the Triumph triple so special.
The Daytona 675R is, of course, a sportbike. So you get clip-ons, a compact frame, and an aggressive riding position. Riding one daily can be tiresome, unless you’re used to the grind of keeping sportbike posture.
But as it’s a sportbike, you also get high-end ride gear. The R in particular has Öhlins front and rear suspension, something that the Triumph Street Triple range never got (even the high-end RS still only had an Öhlins rear shock).
The brakes on the Daytona 675R are Brembo front and rear, with four-piston radially mounted monoblock calipers gripping 310mm discs. On the R model, there’s a “Race ABS” mode that lowers intervention levels.
The Daytona 675R also gets a quick shifter.
The Daytona 675R really excels on the track or in very sporty riding. It is very narrow and feels lightweight — in fact, the 675R has barely gained any weight despite the debut of the model many years earlier, and also despite gaining ABS and emissions regulation equipment.
Many prospective owners ask the question: Is the Daytona 675 good enough, or should one stretch the budget (and be more patient) for a 675R?
The general consensus among owners is that the stock Daytona 675 is excellent for most riders, and even those who take their bike to the track. Serious riders might enjoy the Öhlins suspension, but then if they’re that serious they’d probably swap them out anyway for newer units.
The best reason to opt for the R is that it’s an icon, and more likely to retain its value and be easier to sell in the future.
The service schedule for the Daytona 675R is much like many other liquid-cooled Triumph sport bikes. You change the oil and filter every 6000 miles / 10000 km, as well as doing a number of other checks. Then every second service, check the valve clearances and change the spark plugs. Aside from that, keep everything lubricated and the fluids fresh and you’re golden.
