I just took a demo ride today. They had the Triumph truck at my local. I threw my gear in car and went to pick up some parts for the 400. When I got there they had jus sent a group out. I have been itching to try a 675 Daytona since they came out.
They only had one available and someone was riding it in the next group. I asked if they had a street triple. They did so I went on that. As usual I had little time so I thought this was close enough.
First impression didn't like the bars easy fix. The seat was a little soft and dished another easy fix. The suspension I was suprised was very complaint. Usually when they cheap out on the suspension to cut cost it tends to be crap. The motor is fantastic lots of torque even around 4k. Man that thing ripped when you got past 6k. I never brought to redline but a couple of quick burst to around 10k. I was very impressed just have to convince the wife I need another bike.
Anyone have one right now and what are your experiences? I know there have been a few issues with the 675 namely when ridden hard. I read the Motorcyclist story on their 675. The thing dropped a valve on two different motors.
I have been around 675s a lot.
I am aware on one having a computer problem. Aside from that, problem free. It was in the first batch delivered... so if it was a problem, seems to be fixed.
As for whether or not they are ridden hard..... 5 of them are track bikes. No issues except the rider! I have been nothing but impressed with them. Also, a couple of RC51 guys switched to them. They do not have the lack of torque many 600s have.
