Default Re: 2006 Middleweight Supersports: Is 675 Cheating?

I think it'd be interesting to compare how good the new R6 is to the 'R6S' and whether the new model is worth the extra $1k. Or see if a modified R6S that equals the cost of the new R6 is comparable or still slower/less or more comfortable.

I agree 100%. If you get more performance for the same bucks, that only seems to be a big, fat benefit to me. Congrats Triumph. Not only did you arrive in the big leagues, but you won. And it's drop dead gorgeous. To me, the most beautiful motorcycle ever made is the Duc 916-998, and the Daytona 675 is right there with it. Too bad my Triumph dealer won't deal. I can buy a new '06 GSXR750 cheaper out the door than the 675 inspite of the $1000 higher retail for the Gixxer. Decisions, decisions.....TOFOB. Cheers, Jack

Now, if I read this correctly, you're whining about the Suzuki for having a midrange. It only feels weak/boring in comparison to the other inline 4s because it has a less useless midrange. It makes just as much or more peak power/torque as the other 4s, but there's more of it down lower. Not that I'm biased at all or anything...

Since this is an old item and nobody is reading these comments anymore, I can safely kiss your ass and say that you're consistently the most intelligent poster on MO.

I'd say that Triumph's replacing the Four with a Three, and the win in this comparo, is further evidence of the long, slow death of the Inline-4. Right, kpaul?

Congratulations Triumph! Hope you sell a bunch of 675's. Can't wait to get a test ride on one. Unfortunately we lost our Triumph dealership last year and the nearest one is now 350 miles away.

Picked it up on a RAINING Saturday, put 150 miles of break-in on her, following Thursday we did 425 miles of L.A. area twisties, then that Sunday 350 more miles including SNOW:

The results already speak for themselves, this bike is not bad at all for 3-500 mile days.
