Sorry but my SV650S had reflector headlights and they sucked! My daytona with HIDS on high light up a 1/4 of mile! I care about that when Im doing 70+ mph on the highway. Sorry but the loss of the Projos is sad and the undertail exhaust. But Im sure a low boy Zard will look sexy

Interesting, had not seen that yet but still looks like the only thing that has actually had any change was the front and new wheels, the rest looks untouched especially the tail, I bet when they do a their typical redesign like the cbr1000rr got, it will have side exhaust.

Logan, I understand, but I've had bikes with reflectors that were better than the stock bulbs in the Daytona. You had to install an HID kit, so that says something. Besides, it seems like most people are objecting to the aesthetic aspect, not the performance aspect.

I think there's probably a little rationalization going on from all.of us, too. It's easier to be happy with the old bike if the new one doesn't improve on it in a significant area, in this case, aesthetics.

Could it be that some part of us was secretly relieved to see that the new bike isn't as good in some respect as the ones we already own? I think it's very possible.

Absolutely, all I ever heard about the projector style lights on the 2012's was how bad they sucked and that you had to upgrade them to HID.

I like the new model. I'm not yet invested, so am glad there is something new to choose from. Still planning on getting a new 675R as soon as I have enough pennies saved up.

Though many times they've seen the way to leave.

Immobilizer.

I like the shape of the mirrors and the covers behind the headlights appear to be carbon fiber.

the new Daytona gets a tricky new ventilated upper triple clamp
It looks less 'ventilated' then the old triple.

My CBR600RR had reflectors, and it would fry corneas, but my Daytona's projectors suck, I couldn't see 15' ahead of me. But now with my HIDs, I can see much better.

I don't think it looks that bad... Guess it depends on whether you value style over performance.

Mods:Competition Werks Slipon, Gold Rims, D3 Driven Grips, gold shorty levers, Smoke screen, Saddleman Seat and more to come....

I think it was time for a change. The new model hasn't grown on me yet but we will see. I don't care for the sub frame, it looks fat. I also understand the purpose of a low side exhaust, mass centralization and weight loss but... I still love the under tail exhaust, roasted nuts and all. Do I want one? Duh! Of course I do! But I will say I like the look of my '09 better. But I also like the looks of old Stingrays, Broncos, and pick-ups more than the new stuff. Just my .02

Any job worth doing is worth doing one handed.

My opinion:

Pros:
- Slipper Clutch
- New Engine (Bit more power/torque)
- Lighter (Rims, frame, misc)
- Better computer system

Middle:
- ABS (Pro if you can turn it off, Con if you can't, nice to have for street riding)

Cons:
- Hate the design
- No Projectors
- Hate the low mount exhaust (I know, lower center of gravity...don't care, I ride just fine with an undertail exhaust)
- Looks like a Ninja 650R...I know because I have one. lol

End result: Would make a great track bike. lol
