Daytona 675 or GSXR 750

Looking at a 2008 Triumph Daytona 675 or another GSXR 750 around the same year. Let's just say for the purpose of this thread they are both well maintained, low mileage, never tracked bikes. What are some pro/cons of each bike? Any opinions? Thanks guys.

And, the 675 is missing a cylinder. : )

Looks like you've owned 2 750s already. I think you've already answered your own question.

As the video says, depends on what kind of rider you are and what you are going to do with it.

Both are great bikes.

gixxer = parts a dime a dozen easy to find

daytona = not as easy to fix and find parts but sounds a hell of alot better then a gixxer

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

675 hands down. Every squid already owns a gsxr. The exhaust note alone would sell me. I have ridden both on and off the race track and have owned the 750. The 675 is more fun.

Its obvious you cant go wrong with either. But all things equal, I gotta agree with this logic.

I still have to try out the daytona 675. I've ridden the Street triple, and its great for what it is.

I think if I start seeing more track use than road use I might make the switch. For now though my GSXR 750 is plenty bike. Never leaves me wanting.

A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.

Daytona for the win. It is far more nimble than the Gixxer and gives far more feed back. The Gixxer is like riding a dead horse with no spirit. So go with the Daytona unless you have a mohawk on your helmet and well then enough said
