It was awesome. Very tall bike...but the seat is pretty narrow...so it doesn't seem as tall as it is. Sounds killer....very loud intake whine. I liked it.

Not that long. It's my buddy's. We traded from the gas station to my house. Just a short trip.

They come stock with Stainless lines too.

6'3"- you probably won't like it. At 6'2", I was really cramped. Knees and elbows together, but I'm not that used to sportbikes. I love how the gixxers, zixxers, and R1/R6 sit, but not Busas. Just my

General maintenance will be more, and do they have aftermarket support for them yet? Just a couple of things to think about before you purchase a Triumph. I like knowing that not everyone has my bike though, so I would love to upgrade my TT600 to one of those bad boys.

right on... have you sat on the 06+ R6? I sat on that and felt EXTREMELY cramped... I loved the feeling of the new 06+ Gixxers.

I think it was an 06-R6. But it didn't feel uncomfortable like the 675 did. The R6 at least felt like you were in and around the bike, the 675 felt like I was perched on top without much to hang on to. The 675 looks awesome, and gets good reviews, and i like the triple instead of a twin or I4. It's just tiny! I'd like to see a comparison of footpeg heights- from the ground, and relative to the seat and clipons.

There's a bit of an aftermarket coming on for them. My buddy's got rearsets...HID lights...frame sliders...and Jardine's got a pretty killer exhaust that should be out by now.

The R6's peg height (from the ground) is amazing. I got new pegs and haven't scrapped them yet. And i had that bitch over at my last track day. hit my boot a few times though.

I think the 675's are higher- at least compared to the seat. I just don't know if I would feel safe taking it over very far. Maybe it's just the noobness- I felt very bird on a wire. Sooner or later, you're going to fry or fall off.

I was at the local euro dealer recently & some rider bought one & did about
9k in upgrades, full race exhaust, the works. So I ask the dealer if the dude was doin that to get into track, he goes no just some street dude.

I was like if he had that kinda money, why not just spend a few more grand to get an MV Agusta F4, they had one on the floor for close to what he spent total.

I love the look of those 675s, but there are no dealers around of my area (manitoba, canada). I would be up sh1ts creek if anything broke

I have a Sprint ST and I never have a problem getting parts. I am looking to get a true sport bike but the Daytona is too cramped for me (I am 6'5"). I have however been contemplating a speed triple. The ergos are better and the thing is a beast on the road and on the track.

The Speed Triple is a straight hooligan bike. They are wicked. And
