2008 Triumph Daytona 675 Special Edition
Totally PositiveBy (I am an Owner) on Dec 29, 2008
The Daytona 675 Limited Edition is full of surprises and they are all excellent. From the comfort aspects to performance, I am nothing short of impressed and satisfied with my purchase. Although I have only clocked up 2300km and the longest days ride 550 kilometres, the ride was all fun. It bites ... in on the corners, has lightning pick-up and feels well balanced. There is the odd other bike with physical appeal but nothing matches this motorcycle.
I have ridden motorbikes since 1970, beginning with a triumph and now ending with one, since I can't see myself ever wanting to sell this model. All the bikes between have been Jappas: (Suzuki, Kawasaki, Honda and Yamaha)
There was a little doubt about whether I should go this way, as a 56 year old, but no regrets the bike actually improves your riding.
I still have my original motorbike, a 1957 Triumph Tiger Cub bought in 1971. It still runs well but there is no longer any fun or incentive getting this 'ol dog' out ....... not now I have the best bike presently available and very light at 160kg dry weight.
