I want to thank you all again for your input. I bought the bike today, after a lot of price negotiating.
I found out it was the last '12 model in the surrounding 5 state area, so I feel pretty lucky.
Time to figure what to mod 1st. I have about 10 weeks before my riding season starts again...

Here are pics of it today, on the dealer floor, and on my trailer.
Sure wish I could ride it!

Nice bike. Went from a 929rr to a GSXR600 then to a D675 and I just prefer the Triumph. The balance fits me well. Congrats.

Great find! that would sure suck having to wait 2.5 months to ride a bike you just bought lol. some good starter mods are:


frame and covers protection (great kit from TJ @ RD)
arrow slip on (take out DB killer)
watsens flush mount turn signals (they take about 2.5 months to get in so order today!)

I have several litre bikes and hyper bikes and find that the triple motors can easily hold there own in the back roads. It's on the longer straights that the larger displacement bikes really have the advantage to stretch there legs. Generally the smaller bikes are quicker in back roads where I ride. The litre bikes with there taller gearing are usually out of there power band. You can flame me all you want as I know it's a hell of lot more fun to ride a slow bike fast then fast bike slow. This is my first Daytona I will be getting this month a 2013 R and never even rode one prior till. I own a speed triple R and a street triple R and always lead the pack when riding back roads. I can only assume that with superior aero dynamics hp and tq along with increased handling confidence it will only be better. I find it boring on litre bikes on back roads as the bikes never feel like they are working no matter how hard you push them. If you are on the highway thats another story. I also own a S1000RR and feel that thing is better left to the track. It's suspension is punishing and there is no power below 7k. At around 10k you better be ready for the pogo stick as the needle will smash the limiter faster then you could blink. That bike requires more focus and kinda takes the fun out of tight curvy roads. I find the motor way to peaky and enjoy my street fighter 1098's torque much better and useable in back roads. Every bike motor has its good points along with it's bad and find the triple motors to be a happy median.
