Similar bikes but different purposes. The D675 appears to be a road bike you can race whereas the F3 is a race bike you can ride on the street, and they're set-up accordingly
According to the article, the D is even better on the track. Yes, the F3 is faster in a 0-60, but it ended up with a slower time after running the full track. Again this is the D675R not the regular one.

Well, No one is bashing the F3. If you read the article, you may have noticed that toward the end, the writer said that both bikes were really good, but that the D is better. So the testers didin't say that the F3 was crap.

2nd, they conceded that the bike is faster in a 0-60mph, and they said that the F3 is better looking (Pageant contest). But again, unless you rode both the F3 and 2012 D675R (Yes R not regular version), you have no reason to discredit the writer as biased.

As I understood, you are comparing that to the 06/07 Daytona, which is not even on par with an 09 D675.
