Anyone looking for a new track bike....Triumph Daytona 675R

http://www.triumph.co.uk/usa/13580_13584.aspx


If i were looking for a track specific bike i'd pick up the new 675R. i believe its starting at 12k....but comes with some pretty awesome gtrackday tools.....Brembo monoblocs, Quickshifter, ohlins TTX rear, Ohlins NIX30 forks.

I've ridden 675's and if i were to buy a 600....this would be it. great bike, this 675R is the perfect option for someone looking for a reliable trackday racer out of the box.

I've always wanted to ride one of those. I loved that first first SE model that was black with gold rims.... sexy. Just don't know anybody that has one.

they made a white with blue frame/wheels SE last year. looked awesome. the new 675R with carbon fiber and paint looks like a Ducati 848.

They sound glorious. I had actually contemplated getting one instead of my RC. Maybe I will sell the RC and pic one of these up...

A smart man would keep the RC AND pick up the 675R!

That'd be great wouldn't it? Maybe when I retire in a few years and get a nice GS job perhaps. I think I already have a buyer lined up for the RC...
