Go for a ride and get it out of your system. Then go back and read the stories you missed. MO rocks!

Well said.

Two or rather 5 can play that game.

Default I am in love.

Glad to see that Triumph didn't go off the deep end on the ergos like Kawasaki. Beautiful bike. I can't decide between the Yellow Daytona or the Yellow CBR600RR. Life is tough in the best price/performance class in motorcycling.



Nice article and better pictures this time. Good Job

Default From the dork who brought you the year 2525 and the dumbest post of the year comes

Compare with the other mags. Motorcycle Daily does these mini reviews with no video, pictures and one guys opinion on the back after riding the streets of Souther California. MUSA does about one every month. 2Wf bout the same.



Get real and get that corn comb out of your ass Corn Husker. You need to get out more. Do they have cable in Nebraska? Or do you just get reruns of NU football games. Remember my Buffs kicked your teams butt all over the place.

Just buy a new Daytona, Any difference in it and the class leader is going to be negated by the fact that you can't ride them anywhere near their potential anyway. By getting the Triumph you show that you're a man of taste and distinction, instead of a lame-brain that whines about a $12. per year subscription to pretty neat web site.

Yeah shame they only built 10 Britten bikes and there are just a few more of us over here that like to ride, so we have to ride other things too. Back in the mid 90's it was awesome to see the Brittens racing on our street circuits. Last time I saw one was at the 50th anniversary of the Wanganui Street races when Jason McEwan did some demo laps on it. I have some pics posted on Yahoo where they only let guests see them at 400x300 pixels. Go here: Britten at Wanganui.



Cheers

When my daughters saw me looking at the yellow Daytona pictures they both said I should get a cool pik-a-chu bike to go with my "azure" Trophy, They already know that Triumph is the one true motorcycle, everything else is wok-ing. Between granpa's Range Rover my Triumph and the garage fridge full of Boddingtons pub ale we're waving the flag for Blighty.

In a another test I just read, they got 97 rear-wheel HP from their Daytona which was barely run in, only 1,6 hp less than the 2003 R6 tested on the same dyno. I'd say that's quite close.



In that particular test it was noted that the Daytone seemed to feel a bit weaker below 8,000 rpm than the competition.



They did conclude that the Daytona was the 600 bike which was easiest to drive, and they raved about the steering, suspension and ergonomics.



I'd say it's pretty much up there.



Then again, the 600 class is about figures more than any other class, it's ridiculous... 6 to 8 pounds, come on...



I have seen Homer Simpson eat more than that for breakfast.



What, the Simpson's aren't real? *DOH!*

Not having ridden one, I would say that based on the various articles Triumph has created a viable alternative 600, perhaps one built more for the real world than any from Nippon. Methinks a re-do of your 600 comparo is in order...
