Triumph Daytona 675 Riders

Anyone here rides a Triumph Daytona 675? I like the looks of this bike but don't know anyone who rides one. Or has anyone heard of any good/bad reviews on it.

If I had the extra money laying around I would buy another so that I could have one for street and one for track. I may do it later this year.

I was concerned when I got rid of the ZX-14 and bought the Daytona that I would be disappointed with the performance. No regrets here! And it comes with a 2 year factory warranty.

Really? My 07 Zx6r had that similar recall, gasket on the motor didn't seal well, but it was covered under warrenty. I'm assuming triumph is aware of this as well (covered under warrenty)?

Squanto bought the one that Gabe was selling a while ago. I haven't ridden it yet, just played around on it. That seat SUCKS IMO, worse than a Honda seat does. You have/had an 07 6R. . . which isn't the most comfy either though. From any and every review I've read, and owners experiences you CAN'T go wrong. If you're interested, and have the means, then go pick one up.

British USA here on the southside off College usually has some btw.

Yeh i agree with the kawa, not the most comfy, CBR seems to feel great for me, but my lil bro's got a CBR and we all know we can't have the same bike,hehehe.

I'll check out British USA. thanks.

British USA Rocks, although they are pretty far from me.
But, well worth the drive.

Polaris West on the other hand
