G'day guys. Time came for me to further my riding career so i got myself a Daytona 675. Something different. something exotic and something sexy. So far i am not regretting it. It sounds awesome, looks awesome and handles awesome (most of the time anyway). So far i have covered 1700kms so it has just been 'run-in'. And boy it was exciting running it in. The thing shat all over the 250 (hyosung) and i was using about 20% of its power. maybe less. conclusion: shes not short of power. The ride ergos and comfort wasn't as bad as i had expected. Im 180cm and found the bike to be just right. I can sit in a neutral position and with enough room to move around the bike and plenty to space to shift my butt back and tuck in. I did notice that i was sitting quite high up and felt extremely weird the first few times. It felt as though i was sitting on top of the bike instead of within it, which is not very confidence inspiring until you get used to it. Also she is a very narrow bike and compact bike. I commute daily with her and i can fit through gaps that the old 250 couldn't fit through. conclusion: different but comfy. bloody slim figure I read reviews about the bike and everyone seemed to say the seat was tough as rocks. But i kinda like it. reminds me that i am on a sports bike and should be concentrating. conclusion: doesn't bother me One thing i don't really like about the bike but have learned to deal with is the amount of heat that this bike generates especially with the pipe running next to your right leg. Never get stuck in traffic on this bike or you will be treated to a nice sauna. since getting the bike i've put a jardine exhaust on it and a new map. i don't know if it actually does help but it feels like the new exhaust has reduced the amount of heat generated next to the right leg. and saved a huge amount of weight. The noise is AWESOME. conclusion: HORN-nee To give the suspension a good test i took it to yarra boulevard for a good fanging. BUT discovered the stock suspension set up to be somewhat stiff. now I'm no expert, but i felt all the bumps on the road coming up the front and rear, which was making me a bit nervous during cornering and the bike felt a little unsettled. BUT, the suspension is fully adjustable so i will play with them until i find something to solve this. but after saying this. when you do find a nice bit of smooth road the bike handles beautifully. I think the faster you ride it the better it performs. conclusion: the bike is beyond my current riding abilities. Tyres! ohhh i like the tyres when the weather is DRY. Once you get the tyres up to temperature they wont let you down. Excellent grip and feeling. BUT when its WET, they become next to useless. no feeling no confidence. bad. will probably change to a set of michelin pilots when I'm done with these. conclusion: fun in the right conditions. all i can say is i love it! love it! and i'll kills you if you touch it. LOL. thank you and sorry about the long post.
