04 Suzuki GSXR 750 or Triumph Daytona 675?

I have a buddy who currently owns a Suzuki 750 but he wants to down grade to the Daytona 675. Hes concerned in the loss of power if he switches motorcycles but as I told him, the looks of the 675 are almost worth the loss of power (Almost). The main reason he wants to get the 675 is because he really likes the looks of it, and to be honest, so do I lol. So if any of you guys have any suggestions please feel free to comment, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

UM stick with the Gixer. It will be easier and cheaper to find parts and labor for a more popular bike. But if looks are that important to him, he should look into a Yamaha.

although there is a difference in power....it isn't that much. Not like going from a busa to a 600.

100% an upgrade. It is a couple years newer and IMO better. We could maybe have a debate if they were the same year.

675 for looks for sure and probably better handling/braking, not to mention having something different........750 for more power, cheaper parts, easier to work on and more dealers that can work on it. Also less finicky without the known Triumph electrical/ECU issues. I like both bikes, remember the 750 will make close to 125-130rwhp, I bet that 675 is barely 110rwhp....Thats a BIG difference in acceleration/top speed. Depends on what you're looking for..

Talking Boo Yah!

The new March 09 Motorcylist Mag reviews the new 675, nearly the same HP as my 08 750 and lighter. They love it.

Of course I'd smoke that Limey after 60 mph and on.
