Yesterday I was at Morgan Park Raceway for a track day, having a real good time battling it out with a guy on an R1 in some fake "racing", then a kid on a Moriwaki 250 blew past us like we were standing still and left us in the dust. Take your own moral from the story... mine was that displacement is a small part of the equation.

I can't speak for those riding 1000cc bikes but my D67R has never left me wanting more, the engine is amazing on the street, huge torque curve to ride on and its physical size makes it feel tiny compared to other bikes.

Go for the 675 you won't be disappointed.

Love my D675, only thing i dislike is the top end power. if this things was doing 125rwhp i would say it is bascially perfect.

but depending on what you like in your bike, you will mss the HP but the bike has so many postive traits.

I made the switch. I never regretted it. Faster everywhere. My friends may catch up in the straights, but they have to pin it to do it.

You can get pretty damn close to that with a full exhaust an air filter and some mapping.

I had a 08 1krr and I think the 675 is a great balance if speed/tq/Hp. It has get up and go with little consequence, yes you can still get in trouble but not as quick as the 1000.

I haven't had a 1000 in about 2years in march and rode one yesterday. I miss how smooth and comfortable they are but won't track another. Ill get another one for the street later but I don't do that anymore for right now.

just came off a crossplane R1 onto a Street Triple R, mate i would say go for it you wont regret it !! i have filmed my local twisty roads on both bikes & the 675 is quicker by about 4 seconds over every 1.5 minutes.

i chased a mate yesterday on a S1000RR , he couldnt shake me i was behind him the whole time, of course he blasted off on the straights after the twistys but 180 RWHP will do that !!! also will make your licence dissapear in a puff of smoke lol ! plus he has Corsas on & i'm on Rosso II's, when we were both on the same Buells i couldnt keep up with this guy so for him to be the BMW & me on the Street R says alot for the Triumph, unbelievable bike, ive owned my 9 days & ridden 8 of those :)

when i went to the triumph dealership to look at the 675 he said the last 2 bikes traded for a 675 were a 1098 ducati & a RSV4R, this is my 7th bike & favourite so far

Traded an 08 CBR 1K for a 2012 street triple. The torque from the ground up is addicting and the ease of hitting corners is much better than the CBR. I picked up the street triple cause I wanted a comfortable bike and still performs like a sport bike. I seriously couldn't ask for anything more, best of both worlds.

As far as raw power, the fastest I've taken the CBR was 135 (yes, I know it can go much faster), the Triple is was 127 and had more to give. For me, since I don't do track, 127 is fast enough.

Without a doubt, the 675 doesn't have the raw power a liter bike has, but I smoke most liter bikes around the track anyway...
