Yeah, the new ST was the first Triumph I can remember that got unreserved praise from the Brit sportbike press, with the new S3 also getting fairly happy reviews...

As a real-world bike, the Daytona 955i might be better than the R1 or Gixxer. Those bikes are becoming close to unrideable for those over 6 feet tall and approaching 40.

At this rate in a few years the 750 class will be back in force.

I kinda dig it but I'd be more likely to buy a Sprint.



Hmmm..I guess I am old.

Except they'll be calling them 600s.

Apparently, it's not the peak torque that's impressive, it's the linear delivery. By the factory numbers, it reaches it's peak torque high in the rev range, like most supersports, but it supposedly pulls hard (for a middleweight) across the range.



Let us remember that even the top-line 600 I-4s only make in the high 40s (give or take).
