Ditto. Not ready now, so a '13 model will make me happy...
I just called my local dealer, and he has a 12 D675R for $10,999.

Some French vids:

Like others said, I think this thing is going to look sweet in person. I sold an 09 Daytona to buy an 08 Street Triple, and am thinking I might have to add a 2013 Daytona R to the garage next year. Seriously considering this bike or the new Kawi 636 as a track bike. In a couple years, Ducati might get its 799 out and a whole new wrench will be thrown in. Exciting times for the Supersport class.

Just noticed in that second vid, the red subframe on the R appears to be a matte powdercoat job. Looks awesome contrasting with the gloss white paint. The new looks are growing on me big time.

From the spec sheet alone, slipper clutch, new engine castings, valves, etc, this bike might be a really nice jump above the 2012 model. I dunno, pretty stoked after seeing the vids. Like I said, this new model is perkin up.

I'm a track junky/racer, so I love all the updates. I'd pick one up now, but doing so would require selling my current race bike. There needs to be more of an aftermarket for things like race bodywork, rearsets, etc before I do that.

For the casual trackday rider, the removable rear plate/turn signals is pretty cool. They stole that idea off the KTM RC8. 3 screws and you're good to go.

The entire direction they went with the 2013 is all geared to track riding and racing. Isn't that what this bike is made for? If you're a street only rider do yourself a favor and just get a street triple. Once the cool factor of having a "crotch rocket" wears off, you'll be stuck with a bike with shitty ergonomics that weren't designed for the street.

Also notice that the seemingly bulbous front end that we all hated in the studio profile shots is a bit of an optical illusion. That line is created by the two ridges that run over the top fairing and down towards the headlights.

In the videos, where I think you get a better sense of what it looks like in three dimensions, it's not quite so objectionable. Your eye can pick up more of the subtlety, in this case, the main line of the nose.

It's not always easy to capture something like a motorcycle in a 2D image.

I'm also a big believer in seat cowls. So even if the bike is a bit homely, adding one usually helps. It did wonders for my '02 D955i (not a pretty bike).


I think the sub frame looks better in the vids, too.

After looking at the vids I gotta say I do like a lot more now, I was in the fence about it but if I could I'd put my money down on it, stills beats our japanesee counterparts

the looks are slowly growing on me.. does look less cheesey on video..

still want to see some proper ride reviews to see if the technical improvements are really significant.

While I commend Triumph for the technical upgrades I thought wouldn't happen, the aesthetics still look dodgy, as I think there's no excuse for this exhaust. Exhausts being mainly hollow tubes, I doubt they affect mass centralization that much, and as it's been said, that'll be costly, especially if the exhaust bangs the swingarm in a crash.

ABS can be useful on the track, because some people actually ride tracks in the rain, ya know... I'm curious as to how the rear wheel slippage it's supposed to allow will affect the whole thing. And nobody said it'd save you when trailbraking on ice.

I hope this all translates well when they're back in WSS.

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

Triumph created the wonderful 675cc triple to compete in the 600 CC middleweight class and MV Agusta has recently joined the fray.
there are rumours that Yamaha may be next and will produce an in-line 3 in the near future. Maybe the 013 triumph new look is to stake its territory and pre-empt whatever the Japanese may design - i.e., lower side mount exhaust.
