I picked up the 675 three weeks ago - and wow, what a bike! It is the complete package. Looks, sound, performance, handling and grip. I had heard one or two critisms, so would like to address those.... The gearbox is occasionally sticky when block changing gear (at rest). However, I have already done three journeys over two hundred miles and have been perfectly comfortable. My last bike was the 955i, and this is more comfortable. I am over six foot, and find the bikes height and sitting position suit me well. It also has fantastic lights (the 955i had very poor yellowy lights). The acceleration is fantastic, but with the torquey grunt from the triple pots, I can stick the bike into 6th gear at 30 miles an hour and not need to have to change gear. She adores corners. It wasn't long before the wear on the tyre extended right down to the edge, and she exudes confidence. The 675 is a fantastic bike - sexy, glorious in red, and confident in her capabilities. My third Triumph! Strengths: Looks, handling, noise, comfort. Weaknesses: Gearbox, condensation in headlights.
