dave, that's b/c you've grown accustomed to the riding position of your 650r
a few more trips on the triple and you'll get used to it

07 600rr track









I ridin a few on the street. Felt awsome to me....stock. I'm itching to try one out on the track. I just found out that because they are 3 cylinder, they are aloud in superstock and supersport 600 for CMRA. Hmmm I really want to test one on the track. I've ridin every 06 600 out there and like it more than them stock. IMO

I got to ride Swift-e's 675 yesterday at TWS (Texas World Speedway), and with stock suspension, stock rearsets/ clipons, etc I was very impressed! The power was really good, the bike was very planted in the corners, brakes were impressive, I think it only "suffered" a bit in low-end grunt coming out of the corners- but to be fair, that was probably more me than the bike. The 3 cylinder gives power much differently than the twin or the i-4, and it takes a bit of getting used to where you need to have the revs in the corners.

Riding position was good, a bit more narrow than my GSXR, but comfortable for the track. I would not see this as being a good street commuter though- the seat is HARD and the riding position is really more suited for the track. I liked the bike!

Thanks Swift for letting me thrash your tires on the track yesterday!

My wife has one. I ride it every now and then. Great bike. can't go wrong with it. It is super light and has plenty of power. Insurance on it is very reasonable too.

get it!!

I've riden ducatis, other older triumph daytona 955i, and the choices of yama, kaw, suzi, and honda, and after alot of debate, I settled on getting the Truimph Daytona 675.

I don't regret it one bit.

It's by far one of the most fun bikes I've had the pleasure of riding.
If I was tempted to get any other bike, I'd wait for the Ducati 848 to hit showrooms.
Only gripe so far is that parts aren't as readily available as they are with the japanese bikes, but you'll get that with ducati too.
The break in period is a bit long too limiting you to 4000rpm for first 300 miles, 5000rpm for next 300, 6000 for next 300 after that and so on until you've gone a 1000 miles before being "allowed" to open it up.
