Have you ridden one? It's really a love/hate thing. I love everything about my Triumph, and I don't even ride back roads anymore. Other people can't stand it for its aggressive ergonomics, being uncomfortable, and awkwardly slim.

I went from a 954 to a 675. I really like the Daytona.

Even though it's almost as heavy as the 954, it feels and handles like a much lighter bike.

For me, the riding position was a little more comfortable on the 675 than on the 954, but that's going to be different for everyone.

Triumph has an ace in their hands with the Triples. I had a Sprint ST 1050 and the triple's smoothness is unmatched by just about any inline-4, even my sport-touring Connie 14.

The 675 is a gem of a motor, has top-end power to match most I4 600s and torquier midrange than all of them. I am hoping for Triumph to put the '12 models on sale when the redesigned '13 Daytona 675 comes out later this year. The D675R is about as track ready as any production bike can be - with top-tier Ohlins suspension and Brembo monoblocs. Might just pick one up for Xmas if the price is good.

Ergo is no worse than most supersports and better than most Ducati SS.

675 is a incredible engine but youre paying a bit more for british bike and eventually british reliability ... I am not a fan of the narrow feel of the bike and prefer the larger tank on kawi zx6r even if the powerband isnt as torquey... japanese bikes can get you close in performance for a lot less money

Correction...the 675 is actually about 20 lbs heavier than the 954.

I have loved everything about my Triumphs. I went from and R6S to a 675 and immediately feel in love with the weight, height, slim body, and aggressive riding position.

I love to see the popularity of this bike grow, as there were very few owners of these bikes not so long ago.

The first time you ride one you might be indifferent. But the more you jump on the saddle the more you love it.

I used to commute 2-3 days a week round trip of 70 miles to and from work. And never had anything to complain about.

Beware of bikes from 2006-2007. While they are still excellent bikes they are notorious for the R/R burning up. I recommend ordering one the second you buy the bike. I was left stranded on a group ride when mine burned up.

I would venture to say this is the best bike I have ever owned. I have owned yamaha's and suzuki's along with my two triumphs. None of them IMO measured up to my Daytona.

the slimer profile and taller design means the bikes weight is more evenly distributed. 675 handles so much better than any liter bike...

the Daytona is a gem. They have been gaining a following over the years due to people loving them and word of mouth. Ive pretty much never seen people go back to other bikes after owning a daytona, and those that did miss it.
