2008 Triumph Daytona from Australia
The pick of the mid-sized super sports!!!
Nothing yet; the bike was purchased with just 1000km.
Wow, Triumph have made such a great bike with the 675. Heaps and heaps of torque from the inline triple.
Sound like a racebike, and feels like one as well.
More brakes, chassis and engine than you will ever need on the road, in fact it's very hard to appreciate fully if you never took this bike to a track.
I bought this bike after test riding the latest mid sized sports offerings from Japan. I just couldn't bring myself to buy an R6 or CBR 600rr after taking the Trumpy for a spin. This bike feels alive right from idle all the way up to the redline. It has no boring spot and it sounds like nothing else.
The brakes are so powerful that you really need to adjust your right hand as they come on quick and fast, AWESOME!
All up a fantastic bike with heaps of character that does EVERYTHING so well.
Not the most comfortable bike, but this bike was never designed to be a sports tourer.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 2000, so basically the same bike. It's now 15 years old, has 60000 miles on it, is used all year round through British winters, and is probably the most reliable bike in history. I guess yours was a Friday afternoon special. :)
