Ridden both,

The 675 is better in every way, besides part costs (and perhaps reliability).

R6 is the same from 06-13... so you could buyer an older one and get the same performance.

Triumph is thinner, lighter (feels much lighter), torquier, and has unique style. R6 is a great bike, but very high strung, and every one and their dog is riding em. Solid, reliable bike, but really more suited for the track.

I think they are both great bikes; but a 675R is going to be great out of the box (and more expensive, of course).

I have a race version of the 675R and I'm loving it. Maybe spend some time on triumph675r.net before you decide.

Also, I read where Yamaha is supposed to be moving to triples. You can find articles on the web about that.

If Yamaha builds a light, 600ish triple, I bet it will be an incredible bike and Yamaha will sell the out of them.

I have had the following Triumphs:
Daytona 675
Street Triple
Thruxton
73' TR5T

I swear by them. Great bikes.

I loved my Daytona, been thinking about getting another one. They are similar to Ducati's as far as riding position. I love how thin the Euro bikes are. Yamaha's and Suzuki's always felt too wide.

When it comes down to it the 675 is what you would want for your riding style. It has more low end power than an bike, and on the street that will give you a better riding experience.

For the track rider, you can't beat the torque of the Triple motor. So be prepared to pass people around the corners.

I rode my to work. Spirited on weekends. Track days during the season. By far my favorite bike I have ever owned.

Just my 2 cents.

Owned a 675 for street and track. Really a great bike, easy to mod, easy to work on, easy to ride, super light, stock exhaust kind sucks but there are great a/m ones.

Dunno much about the R6, rode it once, thats about it. Felt much the same from my brief ride.

The 675 is so easy to work on and pretty much everyone agree's it has much more style.

I would say R6, but after watching that video, I need to go ride a 675R.

They're both great bikes, ride both to see which fits you best.

My brother has a 675R and I've tried it a few times on both long and short rides. Awesome bike!!! If you're looking in the 600 class I highly recommend the 675R!
