About the only thing that looks better on the 2013 then the 2012 would have to be the rims, and I can't believe they took away our projector headlights.

Don't know if that's already been posted, don't care to look through 15 pages.

Looks wise, its certainly looks like most of the other supersports, but better. The looks are starting to wear on me, and I'm starting to like it. The exhaust is hideous, that that's easily fixed with an aftermarket pipe anyway.

Performance wise is wha appeals most. Bigger redline, up on HP, lighter in weight, slipper clutch. Wonder how the newer engine will feel, may have to test ride one.

The good:
-Passenger rearset placement(no more blockoffs necessary!)
-Ease of modifying the license plate bracket and rear turn signals
-Tad lower center of gravity, weight savings from exhaust
-Underbelly of the fairings looks nice, I can't tell if it's race compliant but my guess is no.

The bad:
-No projector headlights? Major blow in my book.
-How do you sit upright(cruising through the city and such) with the exhaust right there?
-Exhaust bolted to right rearset, added vibration maybe?

The ugly:
-Silver eyeliner
-Turn signals still big and clunky. LEDs are dirt cheap, brighter, and quicker.
-The fairings are cut to show a bit of frame right next to the word "Daytona." It's pointless.
-The black plastic surrounding the bottom of the gas tank. Again, why?

Replacing the projectors with reflectors was probably to save weight, the daytona has always been heavier than competing bikes for some reason and the old headlights were a bit heavy. Like that matters for people who race/track their bikes anyway...

No idea what's going on with the eyeliner.

The Tank plastic is probably something to do with ripping off the japanese look:
