Default daytona 675r

I am just wondering if any of you have rode these before or know much about them. I am planning on getting a "new" bike and am in the process of researching. I love my f4i but it is kind of messy...reconstructed title. I have been looking at gsxr 750s but now I am kind of interested in the 675rs. How do they compare to the f4i? Thanks guys

I was interested in that bike to until I started doin research on it and decided to go on a test ride. From what I've seen, that bike doesn't handle to well and has trouble on tight turns. When I rode the bike, I felt it to be uncomfortable as well and it was a bit heavier then ur normal 600cc bike. Imo, the f4I is way better then that bike. But that just my opinion. I think u should go ride one and see for yourself, I see em on cl for about 6.5k~.

i seen a 06 on CL for 4.5k and has like 4500 miles. i'll keep researching about them. like i said early i love my f4i just ready for an upgrade. it's hard to find places to test ride bikes so that doesnt really help my decision...lol

My girlfriend has an 09. They re-designed the charging system in 09, it had alot of problems before that. The bike is light and very flickable, amazingly stable once over too. The R model has the front end raised by like 2mm which is a common mod on the non-R's. Brakes are good and standerd stainless brake lines is a big plus. Fueling on her bike is great, it has the factory "racing" slip on and computer tune. Very skinny bike! Went on a cruise on the pacific coast highway in cali a month ago, my f4i, a 600RR, 1000RR and her triumph. 4 ppl told her how nice her bike was, 0 told us how awesome we looked [including another girl on the 600RR]. The R model is a SWEET value for a new bike!

I absolutely LOVE the 675! They're just so well built, and the reviews are all incredible. I haven't personally riden one, but everyone that i know that has love it. Definitely a much more powerful bike than the F4i, and also is designed much more for track.

Uh.. the 06-08 weren't that heavy.. around 390lbs. But the 09+ are basically the lightest 600cc+ sportbike you can buy at just over 350 lbs..

YouTube - ‪Suzuki GSX-R600 vs Triumph Daytona 675R‬‏

That was the review that made the final decision on this bike >>for me<<. It's nice but doesn't handle too well however, I must say, the ohlins forks is phenomenal when on the a street road, you feel like your on a cloud, super smooth yet firm and the brembo brakes are really "grippy" and sticky. I think for a road bike, its awesome but for performance on the track, it's a disappointment. Anyways that just my 2 cents . I hope you make the best decision!! Best of luck.
