I like it. Except the headlights from the side. They look bulbous. It's nice that it's coming standard with engine sliders.

Here's another article

U-G-L-Y. It looks like it wants to do an endo on its front wheel. Ugly sub-frame. Homogenized. It looks like they took bits and pieces from old and new Japanese bikes. It doesn't stir the soul like the previous generation Daytona.

Looks like a Honda. No interest and very happy with my '11 675R. For the extra $1800 they charge you can get a proper Yoyodyne slipper, sliders and a slipon.

Not same power. Different engine, more hp, more torque, lighter weight. Also has ABS

The new 2013 has a completely different motor. From what I've read it sounds like it will be easier to develop more reliable power. It has a separate cylinder block now which makes me think they've probably gotten away from the floating cylinder liner which was a weak point on the WSS bike. Also it has high and low speed fuel injectors. Not to mention the fact that it has a factory slipper means the fuel injection is likely tuned to work with it which is alway as huge advantage. Also it has lighter wheels a lighter stiffer frame. It weighs less it has more power. No reason to go all crazy about this trying to make yourself feel better about your bike. This doesn't take anything away from what you have. If you love what you have that's all you need to know.
