Ok i have to admit after seeing it on video, it looks worlds better than the still shots. Even that hideous sub frame doesnt look so bad to me anymore. Nice looking bike for sure

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.
There's about 20lbs of weight up high with the exhaust under the tail. There's about 10lbs extra weight period with the added pipe going to the back of the bike. On a bike that weights 400lbs read to ride these are big percentages of the overal. weight. Ideally the exahust would come out just above the swingarm inline with the center of gravity which is the point about which the bike rotates when you turn. Getting the weight too low can be as bad as getting it too high but the high muffler is definitely nothing but an aesthetic piece. One that I hate Ducati for. Personally I don't want a bike that copies Ducati for any reason. Appearance doesn't make reliability.

The video really sold me. I can see why the front looked funny from the profile view now. Now that I know what the issue was I really really like it.

Another quick comment about the new subframe. I noticed big changes to where the subframe bolts to the main frame. Specifically 2 more bolts and mounting points for a total of 6 now vs. 4. This was always a weak spot on the old frames. I've parted out several wrecked Daytonas and all of them that had any impact at all to the subframe broke off the tabs on the main frame. Again, to a street rider probably not a big deal. If the bike takes a subframe hit like that its probably considered totalled by your insurance either way. I don't have collision insurance on the race bike though, so it would be nice if the frame held up in a crash, lol.

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.
Totally agree after my 100 mile ride today and then seeing my buddy pull up on a speed triple I wish they had the street triple r at the time
