Triumph daytona 675

So who here has one i.e. 06 07 or 08? I would like to see one in person rather then going to mil. wis to look at one as that is the nearest dealer.


So who wants to pony up and let me come by on friday to check it out and ask a few questions or provide a dealer near chicago that has some in stock.

this color is sexy


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. .

Team MCC should have it. Not sure about their test ride policy in general, but they did let me test ride the Multistrada back then. This bike is a real pleasure to ride...

MCC does offer test rides, they should still have a 675 they use for this. I think it is also blue. John in sales from there ownes a 675 and uses it for track. They are a very good dealer, I highly recomend going there. www.teammcc.com

MCC is the place to go.

I've had my '06 since Feb of '07 (first one they sold) and I've had no problems at all, and it has over 4000 track miles on it.

Also, I don't think anyone in Chicagoland has a better sales or service department than MCC.

You're welcome to check my bike out as well, allthough the body work is currently kind of ratty..

I got one and love it. One you hear the sound of that exhaust you'll fall in love with it. I was going to buy new, but few members on here talked me into buying used. So I'd check craigslist and ebay first.

Nice bike Im a sucker for that blue neon tho. BTW have you dropped that bike? Looks like it took a spill on the right side the way the brake level is bent or is it just the angle

675's rule. (recent convert)

John the sales guy at MCC let me take his to Road America where I rode it coaching with STT earlier this season. I put 230-something track miles on it, but KNEW it was my next track bike on the first hot lap.

MCC has one left, I think. Its the black Special Edition version.

I don't have one of these, but I loved the body of it the first time I saw one a couple years ago and have thought this might be a good option for the next one.

They don't seem to be as popular as some of the Jap bikes, but the few that do own them seem to love them. Are they a lot different (more torque? Slower? Faster? "Different" power?) since they're a triple or is there another reason we don't see more of them?

(P.S. - Don't mean to thread jack, but I figured it was along with the topic)

I cant speak for the D675 myself, but I have owned a few Triumphs over the years. I had a 2001 TT 600, and now I ride the D650. I absolutely love my 650. Triumph made some huge engineering strides between the TT 600 and D600, and the same holds true for the D675. I think you will be very impressed w/ the performance of the bike, and the fact that they are not a "dime a dozen"

The triple has more midrange than your average 600.

It also delivers power more twin-like than an IL4.


This does two things..... it makes it easier to ride ( broad powerband )
and easier to ride fast ( better throttle - wheel connection ) becuase
you can drive it off corners earlier.


Rockin good bike.

i believe it has the most torque but is down by two or three HP. like blarney said, it delivers power earlier than an I4. when looking at an 08 600RR and this, i believe that the torque the cbr made at 8k rpms, this made at around 4k. the sound is simply amazing, nothing compares to it. http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/Articl...ID=6413&Page=1

there are a few common complaints and those are mainly the harsh riding position and that it's rough to shift. helibars solve the first one and i really haven't had problems with mine as far as the shifting. it's def a bike to check out if you're in the market for a new one. 09s are coming out soon with 3PS more and weighing 3KG less plus new brakes, suspension, first gear, slight change to looks and a lot of other changes.

Are any of you Triumph owners going to be at bike night tonight? I'd to take a closer look at these bikes.

Also, I read through the 08 middleweight comparison and it said that the riding position was pretty bad. Is this true?

i'm going tonight but to the one in portage, not the portillos one. i have helibars on mine that changes the position so it's comfortable but can't really compare it to other bikes as this is my first.

Position works for me.... They are all really close.

A Sportbike is a Sportbike.

Only thing you do notice is it sits a little taller than some.

Fine once you are used to it.

I'll be at Portillos tonight, but I ride a Daytona 650. Mine is an inline 4, so I cant speak specific to the torque gain by the triple. However, I love the sound of my bike, and I have no issues w/ seat position. Feel free to stop by and I will share w/ you what info I can.

If you want a bike with comfortable riding position, why get a race replica sportbike? :headscratch:

I have no problem with my seat on my '00 6r, and it is obvsiously a sport bike. I just wondered if it was really as bad as the report said or is it just that they're that particular about different riding positions that they look for the slightest differences between the other bikes. They also said the Ducati was bad, but I've never sat on one of those to determine was "bad" was.

The real answer is that no- the positioning is not that bad. You have to take into account that most of the magazine writers and such are so biased to the Japanese 4. I dont blame them, Jap bikes have been around for a while. You get used to doing something one way for so long, it can be difficult to accept new things. Triumph does things a little different, but I have never had any issues w/ riding position before.

Some folks like the 916/996, it was rough on the wrists !


The 999 isn't so hard on the wrists ( 749 ) but you sit
more "in it" than "perched on it" like the daytona.

I dont find the 996 to be too bad to ride. My neck hurts sometimes, but its a small price to pay.

Maybe its because I suck at riding motorcycles, but I really didn't like the 675 at all. I rode it at an MCC demo day and I was ready to get off it half way thru the ride.

Granted, I'm not the best rider and I'm sure the more experienced track guys love it and get more out of it than me. But I really didn't like how it handled and I hated the riding position, (yes I've rode other supersports and those felt good).

Just my .02 and I'm in the vast minority. Like any bike you should take one for a spin before you buy.

Its definitely a very focusd machine. I'd prolly never get one as a street bike. I like the triple motor and light agile handling, though. Maybe next year when/if I get another streetbike, it'll likely be a Street Triple R.
