Six Monkeys build a Triumph Daytona 1050


The custom-built Triumph Daytona 1050 looks interesting...
Via Moto Caradisiac

For those who love the Triumph Daytona 675 but wish it had a bigger, more powerful engine, German company Six Monkeys have built a special, one-off Daytona 1050. Triumph currently use the three-cylinder 1050 engine in only three bikes – Tiger, Sprint ST and the absolutely brilliant Speed Triple. But it seems a lot of people want a high-performance Daytona 1050 – an all-out supersports machine that can take on Japanese, German and Italian litre-class machines. And while Triumph aren’t building one – at least not for now – Six Monkeys have gone ahead and built one already.

With modifications to the Triumph 1050 engine’s fuel-injection software and the airbox, power output now stands at 139bhp at 9,100rpm and 116Nm of torque at 7,600 revs. The bike gets carbonfibre bodywork, suspension components and steering damper from Wilbers, Dunlop Qualifier RR tyres and BOS exhaust system. Chassis and single-side swingarm is from the Speed Triple and the bike weighs 222 kilos wet.

Performance figures aren’t available, but the bike sure looks interesting. Perhaps Triumph will be inspired to finally build their own Daytona 1050…?

That is half a year old already.
And Triumph said they can not compete with the 180 bhp standard of the competition, so no...no Daytona 1050 for you ;)

Neat

Lets be honest its a Speed Triple with a fairing rather than a Daytona with a 1050.

Since we got the 1050 sprint in I've been lusting after a hotted up version of this engine in an exotic chassis like a Spondon aluminum frame of something in Ti. The engine is brilliant and responds well to mild upgrades. Once we break 30K miles we're going to run higher compression pistons, a set of cams and lots of port work. Should prove interesting.

Triumph, you need to build this bike NOW. And don't worry if it isn't as powerful or fast as the ZX-10 or GSX-R1000, that's not the only thing that's important. Some people - me - NEED a three-cylinder litre-class bike. Please, please...

Personally, in these "lean" times and in an effort to distance themselves from the usual Japanese comparisons, I reckon I'd like to see Triumph churn out a Daytona 800 based on the Tiger 800 engine, obviously with a few mods to make it a quality race bike too...now that, would put it in a league of it's own!
