Triumph Daytona 675

This bike is trying to seduce me. It surely looks pretty. It's been trying to lure me in for weeks now. Asking price just dropped $200.

Anyone have any experience with them? I've never seen one before this craigslist ad.

I would love to own one of them. The Triple engine sounds soooo damn good. I've sat on a few at dealerships, they don't seem too uncomfortable. Definitely light (compared to the hog 919). Rave reviews, think it won sportbike of the year a couple times from some publication. Only thing I'd worry about is the reliability / Triumph dealer locations. Its unique and uncommon, another reason I'd want one. What's the guy asking?

If I could afford one, I'd own one.

Thanks for the input. He's asking $6295. Seems way to high to me. Nada and KBB put it in the upper 4K range.

I know what you mean. I've been trying to find one here for a long time. But the only ones that are in decent shape are around $6k, just like that one. Sport bikes definitely seem to hold their value (at least here) more than anything else. If you could talk the guy down about 600 bucks, jump on it. Then post pics, lots and lots of pics.

I have a 12 daytona 675. Best bike you'll ever own. I have had it over a year now and still obsessed. Te 3 cylinder is perfect. Power and torque perfectly combined.
