Default Re: Triumph Daytona 675R. A true everyday Superbike!

Jose, Congratulations on your ride.

I'm riding the 675R from past 8 months and always wanted to have such a review thread - riding and work have kept me busy. Good write-up.

Ride within your limits; the bike has none

Congratulations Jose! This bike adorns my wallpaper and my heart.

Meanwhile I was told that you will have to stick to 95 Octane if you change to arrows. Just got a barrage of questions when I saw you have arrows on your 675R:
1. Were you made aware of this when you changed to Arrows?
2. How easy is it to get 95 octane around where you live?
3. How do you plan to manage long rides with scarce availability of premium petrol? ( in case you plan on long rides)

Pretty late, but congratulations nevertheless Jose. Quite a looker, that bike.

I have a query for you: How would you compare the Striple and the Daytona? Mostly with respect to rideability, acceleration n all.

Wow! Thats quite a Daytona fan.

Actually the Daytona runs fine on regular petrol. I havent faced any issue with them.

BP sells premium petrol in select outlets; in fact there is one right near my place. Just that i don't use it.

Thanks Mate.

Did u mean Speed or Street?

In fact both of them offer a more street oriented riding posture that's great for regular commuting and stunting. Its quite easy to pull controlled wheelies on both.

Daytona is quite different and is a track focused bike that happens to be very streetable because of its wide rpm range and power low down.

The Street is very different from the Daytona even if the basic engine architecture and chassis are shared. Acceleration in the Daytona is quite brutal when u give it the beans; i dont think the nakeds have any chance to keep up.

Thanks for your inputs. I meant the Street. Rode the Street inside the city and it seems to be kissing almost every speed-breaker on the road. Otherwise found it really nimble and to my liking.

Had ridden the Daytona quite a bit last month and was instantly at home on it as well. Couldn't really open up the Street so didn't get to understand how it fares with the Daytona in roll-on acceleration. Your feedback has given me a bit of an idea. Now to take the plunge.
