675 any new info?

I was reading the last post about this bike, and still no price was listed or torque. Well I might be a little late, but I picked up a motor cyclist magazine the other day, and it has a nice write up about the 675. To answer a few questions, that I didn't see answered are the price in the US will be sub-$9000, and below 11,000 euros in Europe. They are also set to make 32,000 of those bikes, then boost that number up to 38,000. 53ft.lbs. of torque @11,750 rpm. It should also top out at more than 160. The dude writing it up said that the bike was real comfortable and stable at high speeds. Anybody else got any updates?

read the same mag was also interested in seeing what other people heard about it. They also slimmed up the bike a lot. Their frame seems innovative, reducing the weight by 5.5lbs. Thats all I remember from it

The Daytona is adequate on the track and gets the job done on the street. You can even ride it on one wheel if you so choose.

Ive been reading the UK mags about this bike. RIDE did a quick comparo with a 600RR and ZX6R, with the 675 coming out as the better handling, more powerful, and lighter feeling bike.

Triumph is really rising tofight with the best in the 600 something class now since theyve got the top spot in the Streetfighter open class already. Plus the Speed four was just voted best sport for the money period at 6000 something bones for the traditional 4 cyl 600 form them. Props to Triumph, seems they wanna make it "the big five" now.

Triumph is being smart now. They dont have the years of R&D like the japenese do to make and tweak I4's like they do. But they have plenty on Triples. Using the rules for supersport racing, and taking the displacement bump allowed for a difrent configs. (alah ducati 749) They can compete on their terms. And from the "first rides" i read, they have done a good job, and a plaform to update periodically. Im starting to seriously look at these now.

They certianly are a bike ot look at if u love performance.. many ppl will say "oh piss on their triples" but that takes a arrogant naive person, they performe with the best when they put out a new model and theyve proven themselves to be reliable. Their suspension is also top quality, i know theyve got me considering new options for my next bike, may be the new 1050cc triple if they get it in a SS bike i like.

definitely one of the bikes to look at on '06. Everybody is making noise about thr new R6, I hope this bike isint overshadowed by that. If I was in the market, I'd be looking at this bike for sure

This bike may actually be a contender in the modern market. If and when they come out with an American release liter bike. I will definitely consider one.

just read the article in motor cycle magazine. Very cool. Internal water pump. (for when the motor goes naked ) Motor is 2in narrower than the Day-650, and the frame its self is 4.3 narrower. Could fit inside the old one.

Mag said it makes 123 bhp. That equals 200bhp pre liter. hmmmmmm, a 1000 would be very nice.

If I was Mr.Yamaha I don't think I would be too worried about the Triumph unvailing.

While I would consider both bikes on the same playing field.... I think you'll find most of the riders, especially the younger ones, won't even think twice... they'll get the R6 just out of popularity!

the younger ones..... which means half the R6 will be wrecked and out in 6 weeks and the triumph still riding, and taking the young rider who didnt wreck to School on their 17,500 rev limit.
