2013 Triumph Daytona 675

The previous Daytona 675 certainly is a tough act to follow. So just how did we improve on it? The all-new triple motor is more compact, and more powerful, which allowed us to re-design the frame to be smaller, lighter and narrower than before. That, combined with a bigger airbox, new swingarm, lighter wheels and new, sharper, bodywork means we’ve succeeded in making the new Daytona 675 more agile, more responsive, and more forgiving than ever before.
$11,599 - Availal

2013 Triumph Daytona 675R

 

In the Daytona 675R, we’ve made exceptional the new standard. This is a true track day tool. Focused. Committed. And in the right hands, untouchable. The storming new triple motor delivers even more power all the way through to 14,400 rpm redline. The new frame geometry, mass centralisation and race-derived suspension enables razor sharp handling and confidence-inspiring feedback. Add brembo brakes, a quickshifter, carbon trim and some subtle styling details and you know you’re riding a true thoroughbred motorcycle.
$13,499 

2013 Triumph Street Triple (details released earlier this year)

This truly impressive middleweight street motorcycle has been acclaimed by critics around the world. The all-new 2013 model is even punchier, better balanced and more exhilarating.

The new chassis has a more dynamic specification, giving you agility and precision while keeping you planted, and better weight distribution and geometry give you an athletic, responsive ride.

The heart of the Street Triple is the throbbing 675cc triple, delivering 106PS and 68Nm of torque. It’s so good you’ll have trouble believing its only 675cc. The torque and sound of the liquid cooled 12 valve triple, combined with a close ratio six speed gearbox produce an exciting ride, and the under-engine silencer helps lower the centre gravity and improve handling.

It looks even better too, with stylish brushed metal finishes, aggressive headlights and a choice of colored coded styling accessories complementing the dark powder coated engines and frames.

$9,399

2013 Triumph Street Triple R (details released earlier this year)

 

Triumph’s engineers have honed this roadster to perfection, giving it supersport specification, suspension and brakes. With power, torque and even more excitement, this is the most fun you can have on two wheels.

Its lightweight chassis is even more dynamic, delivering greater levels of agility and precision while keeping you firmly planted. Fitted with additional adjustable front forks, an RSU with both pre-load and damping adjustment the Street Triple R offers renowned ride quality, handling and control.

The liquid cooled 12 valve triple, combined with a close ratio six speed gearbox produce an exhilarating ride, and the under-engine silencer helps lower the centre gravity and improve handling. The Nissin radial 4-piston brakes are built to match the bike’s high performance, coping easily with higher speed and rapid deceleration. And the Street Triple R features state-of-the-art Anti-Lock Brakes as standard that can cope with even the hardest braking. And because the ABS system is switchable, it can be easily deactivated whenever necessary via the instrument panel – it will then automatically re-activate when the motorbike is re-started.

The Street Triple R has distinctive good looks too, with stylish brushed metal finishes, aggressive headlights and a choice of colours complimenting the dark powder coated engine and the telltale red rear sub frame, red side radiator cowls, and red pin stripe detailing to the wheels.

The Street Triple R is not a subtle motorbike. It’s a bike with unmistakable attitude, for riders who want to take it to the max.
$9,999

 2013 Vespa 946

 

Winner of Asphalt and Rubber's "Best In Show" (beating all the motorcycles), the Vespa 946 is so distinctive it almost doesn’t look like something one can ride. It looks like it belongs at the Museum of Modern Art or the Guggenheim. Rest assured this work of art is as functional as it is beautiful. In traditional Vespa fashion, the 946 maintains the steel monocoque frame and includes aluminum elements for weight reduction and style points. The handlebar, saddle support, side panels and front mudguard are all crafted from aluminum.

For maximum safety, the 946 comes with ABS and the ASR electronic traction control. Front and rear disc brakes assuredly stop large 12-inch wheels.

The Vespa 946 also respects the environment with a 125cc three valve, electronically injected engine. The North American version will most likely come with a 150cc three valve motor but this has not been confirmed as of yet. Fuel consumption and emissions are incredibly low in this state of the art scooter. To top it all off the 946 comes with an LED headlight and turn indicators. The full LCD dashboard completes the stylish, highly technological look.
Pricing TBD

April Events Recap

By Nick Napoda
on May 03, 2012

April could go on record as our busiest month ever for events.  We hosted the North American Dealer Academy for the 1199 Panigale at NOLA Motorsports with Ducati North America.  This job included prepping 20 1199s for two weeks while trying to keep it a secret from our customers that we were holding 20 of the most anticipated motorcycle of 2012.   200 dealers from around the country got a chance to experience the 1199 for the first time at the one of the premier race tracks in the world.  It was a great opportunity to show-off NOLA Motorsports and the City of New Orleans to our peers.  



This month also included the first official press conference announcing the Triumph Big Kahuna AMA Pro Road Racing event this October.  Jason DiSalvo was on hand to provide the press with some sighting laps on a stock Daytona 675R.  That evening we hosted an event at our downtown showroom.  It was a great event attended by many local enthusiasts in addition to officials from the AMA, FIM, and personalities from Speed TV.  At the end of the evening Jason signed the tank of the bike he used to test the track.


Last but not least, we ended April with the official grand opening of our track-side Motorbike Speed Shop at NOLA Motorsports Park in conjunction with the National Unveiling Night for the Ducati 1199 Panigale.  Being able to introduce the world's most anticipated motorcycle at the world's newest racetrack made for an awesome event.
