Drove the 675 Daytona myself, best bike for the little back-roads, althought the seat is a bit too high for me.

Would like a more nimble version without pipes under the seat. The current version seems a bit 'long stretched'.  But the three cilinder has a very wide rang.

The new Suzuki could be tempting. Much lower seat. Will test it for sure.

The design of the R6 is much to far from a real racer, to much over the top.

What do I know

I haven't ridden any of these bikes so what do I or I expect anyone else posting here really know. How many will have had a chance to compare these bikes. Based on your previous reviews you always favour the Triumph but I've never seen a bad review of a GSXR.

@ screamer69

I'm Canadian and I'd choose the Triumph over any of the Jap bikes... close second would be the R6 though

Bias

I'm American and chose the Triumph for the midrange grunt the Japanese ones don't have.  And it's a scalpel too.

I ride and love my zx6r, but where I park when i commute into the city there is most a 675 parked in the same area, and i must admit I have often walked over and lusted after it, probably makes more sense on the road to be fair, my bike is all or nothing in regards to revs and power.

And I am not British too. The powerband of the 675 Daytona is much more usefull then one of those 4 cilinders.

It's an undoubted good bike, but so bland looking!

in the last twenty years

I had a Honda CBR 600 in 1992 the weight was 185kg and 100 HP! I then thought the bike was thought light and powerful , but nearly twenty years later it has not changed that much, I was expecting the bike to weigh around 165kg and have 125 HP by now i think it time for the manufacture to revamp the 600 cut the fat and increase the power! Yes I know the bikes are refined compared to the old CBR.
