The 675 Kicks !

In the latest Motorcyclist test the 675 kicked ;
417 lbs. wet weight
109.8 hp with 49 ft/lbs of torque.
Best quarter mile time of 10.72!

It's the lightest, quickest and has the most torque of any of the bikes in it's class, and IMO one of the best looking to boot.

Congrats to Triumph for building a bike capable of that kind of performance!

Have'nt had a chance to look one over up close with my decerning eye yet. Hows the build quality compared to the other bikes out there? I have'nt been very impressed by the later model triumphs that I've seen before. Perhaps this one is different though.
Impressive figures none the less.

I've had my hands on a few of them.
Build quality is good, suspension componentry is first rate / comparable to the Japanese, fit and finish is also good.
Ease of service is on par with the Japanese; read; it's a bit of a pain in the on any of the current sportbikes because of the dense packaging.
Overall it's on the same plane quality wise with the big four.

675 is a fantastic bike!
a few of the bolts have come lose on us but a check over every now and again doesnt do any harm.

with the arrow system and no mapping, my 675 was putting out 114.8bhp and 54ft lbs at the rear wheel.
cant wait to see what she'll be putting out after we get the engine work done over the next 2 weeks

I have seen a few in person and they look and sound awesome, and all of the reveiws have been unanimous in that it is the best middle weight this year.

of course it's the quickest in its class, since it has 76cc more than others except for the 636
