Power like It's up to mid. Then it falls short.

Good Power / Weight Ratio info here.

FWIW: When the 675 was on "tour" at my local dealer, the Sales Mgr. said that there's a FULL Ti system for the bike that will drop "20 pounds" (as stated by the Sales Mgr. & staff. That sounds almost too good to be true.
I guess we'll see....

At the local Triumph dealer, the shop owner and his girlfriend are both buying 675. The owner's been in the bike biz for over 30 yrs. including service & prod. dev. @ Am. Honda, 1st Triumph Rep opening up dealers in 9 western states and Gen. Mgr. of Race Tech. He's an industry Vet, so if he's BUYING one, that tells me something...

Another bud of mine is offing his Tiger for a 675.

I'm hoping to get a test ride on at least one of 'em!

For Triumph's sake, I hope that the 675 is a hit!

I LOVE that bike. If I had the jack I'd buy one immediately...that is if they were in stock.


Here's to hoping for a test ride.

I read that the daytona 675 out performed all the Jap 600's. But it was in a mag so you never know.
Either way.....I think its an awsome bike and its good to see another sport bike out there that's not a Jap.

I have heard great things about this bike but one thing I havent heard is that it OUTperformed the japs. On par with them I've heard though.

Yeah it was in cycle world or some mag like that. The new R6 came in second. I bet it would give that thing a run for the money any day.

I believe a few different mags have now said that it's giving the jap 600's a run for there money. It's cool that it can race with them too because it's got three cylinders. If I where to get a new bike, it would probably be the graphite colored 675.

wow, that bike looks amazing. I have heard so many good things about it. I've seen some on ebay for around 6800, but I am not sure what they retail at. The only downside maybe that parts are hard to find.

Retail is either 9 or 10 large. I saw one at the Carlisle show...snapped a few pics.
