Ricci mate, mighty congrats on the Daytona. It is a splendid purchase and wishing you endless happy safe miles.

Just my 2 cents, did you consider the super capable BMW F650GS? Heard they were clearing fully loaded stocks for a steal.

Which showroom? I am also looking to buy a superbike, and wouldn't mind exploring this option.

Congratulations man! This quote from your post perfectly sums up the battle that used to go on in my head. (Un?)fortunately my corporate world plans dictated my bike purchase this year. Hope to see more updates on your thread soon and yes more pictures please!

Am aware of that Sagar. Have done dirt biking before and this might be the perfect bike for me to take to Ladakh. I wasn't aware it was available in India, and that too at a discount. Can always push the supersports purchase for a year or two.

Cheers!

Thanks, mate. I didn't consider the F650 at all, not only was I unaware it's still being sold, I wanted a triple or quad cylinder with 100+ horses , else there are better bikes for my riding than the F650, however practical the bike may be.

Thanks, motorcycles are like a different kind of mind-altering drug, aren't they ? I'll update the thread next post 1st service and some additional miles on the odo.

Congrats Danikesh, that's a wonderful 1st bike to have. A word of caution though, do have a measure of restraint on the throttle hand. If you're not used to riding, the acceleration might catch you by surprise. The good thing is it's a really flexible engine, so you can easily ride in higher gears minimizing the chance of being caught unprepared in lower gears/high revs.

Ricci, congratulations. Loved the narrative and your decision to act according to your heart. The things you said make total sense. One should not repent at a later stage that he didn't do what he wanted when he had the chance. The Daytona is one of my dream machines. Hopefully, I can afford one in the next 5-10 years. Ride safe

Congratulations. Looks stunning.
BTW, since you are saying this is your first bike, are you implying that this is the first time you're owning your own bike or are you new to biking itself? Just curious
Ride safe

Thanks a lot, Redliner. I hope too your Daytona arrives a lot sooner than that. Anyway, it's a good thing for me and other buyers - more sales means more likelihood of parts - stock and aftermarket available. And to show the Japanese 4 what they missed had they been more adventurous in India, considering that the main markets (US and Europe) have shrunk since 2008.

Congrats Ricci and Danikesh, awesome colours!

My heart has been oozing out with temptation to buy this beauty but then my brain starts to debate, Superbike in a day-to-day lifestyle in India is not easy?!? But I had visited the Triumph showroom a month back and since then I have been planning on how to save money for this peach of a sbk.

I've got a question for you guys and since you have got the 675 recently, you'll be in a state of mind to answer this clearly. I currently drive a CBR 250, is it a good idea to upgrade to a Daytona 675? or is it like too much too handle? I also like the street triple and the speed triple but this one is just strikingly beautiful. FYI I'm a sane driver but I'd like to have the extra number of horses beneath me. Please advise.

Thanks and enjoy riding safe!

If you're comfortable with the CBR250R's 160-170kg weight, you will manage fine with the Daytona/Street Triple. They are heavier and more critically, the centre of gravity is higher, but manageable for a seasoned 200cc+ bike rider.

The riding position is more extreme though, more than the R15. They say about the Duke twins (and I guess the RC twins would be not much different) that they aren't happy ridden sedately, they just want to rip. The Triumph motor is very happy ambling along at low revs , and a very tractable motor with a mile wide powerband.

The Street Triple is a previous gen Daytona motor detuned for more low-mid range torque, so you can think of them as pretty similar, engine-wise, thought the Daytona gets more top end. Think of it as a comfortable, naked Daytona.

The Speed Triple has a little more power (133) than the Daytona (126), and lot more torque. It looks quite a bit different, so if you dig fat underseat cans or single sided swingarms, the Speed Triple has that.
