Daytona 675 Vs GSXR 750

Recently I have considered adding another bike to my garage and narrowed it down to two bikes.

Both bikes have similar power, good reviews and are quite decent looking. The suzuki's are priced really competitively at the moment and look to be good deal.


2016 Suzuki GSXR 750

GSX-R750 - Specifications | Suzuki Motorcycles

Good points
Ergonomics
Rock solid bike
great suspension package
Bembos up front
Good price

Bad points
No ABS (I don't have ABS on my CBR)
Dated package (not any significant upgrades for a number of years)

2016 triumph daytona 675

Triumph Daytona 675 | 2016 | specs & pictures

Good points
ABS
great suspension package
lighter
updated package

Bad points
More aggressive riding position. (I guess you could install helibars)
Lass usable power down low
More expensive

I don't use the bike for commuting and just enjoy riding on the weekends.

I am not in a position to test ride these bikes till the end of the month and was wanting to know if any members own or ridden one of these and can share there experience / opinions.

The gixxer has more accessible power and is easier to handle...good price point there too. I'd go for that without a second thought. The Daytona is uncomfortable as he77 too.

The 675 is quite a narrow bike. It has so much midrange for a middleweight bike that would make it very useable on the roads. On track and in the twisties, it's a weapon. Don't let its modest size belie what is quite a capable bike. I've attached pics of me at Donington park at the same corner as a comparison between my R1 and my mate's 675.

I'm 5'9 and had plenty of room to move around on the bike. It reminded me of my old ZXR250C (No, not the Ninja 250, the IL4 screamer), which was a good thing. Agility vs stability. What do you want? I found the front end of the 675 very confidence inspiring and the riding position and ergonomics just coax you into riding progressively, letting you safely find your limits. Despite not having a slipper clutch, ABS or traction control, it's quite a raw, undilluted riding experience.

I just find the gixxer a bit "meh". The Trumpet on the other hand has character. Even with stock exhaust, you will giggle every time you hear the induction howl through the airbox. BTW, just because a bike has brembos doesn't mean that other brakes are poorer. Weight and more importantly its distribution/bias will have an equally important effect. Couldn't fault the Daytona, road or track. Stick on some nice rubber like Dunlop Sportsmarts or Bridgestone S20 Evos and you will struggle to find a finer handling apex hunter.

Unsurprisingly, my lap times were slighlty quicker on the 675 than the R1 at Donny.

No love for the 600RR?

Big fan of the honda but just think that the GSXR 750 or Dat 675 is a great package that I intend to keep for many years to come.

The other two have more characterful engines. Midrange to match the top end rush.
