if it was Larry Myers that said that... then i would take it serious. but if it was just some other so called "instructor" that said it. well, thats just his opinion.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.....

I wish Triumph would make a (competitive) liter version of the Daytona.

the 675 is the better street bike IMO just because of the lazy torquey nature of the triples motor and not quiet being so cramped.

It also has that unique sound.

The R6 out of the crate is the better track bike.

The Triumph is certainly worthy of a test ride before you decide

then obviously it is a good platform. i just have very limited experience with one. i was just voicing my opinion about the R6.

i think u summed it quite well above...

R6 - track
675 - street

Who locally sells the Triumph? I would like to see one for sure. I think they are both sweet bikes. Is price a factor or not? Whats the priceon the 675? whats the price on the R6? Test ride them and make the decision yourself
