...To a 675.
I'm debating on selling my CBR1000RR, and stepping into a D675R. I've got a local dealer that has discounted a '12 model. It's the bike I've wanted for some time. (Besides a S1000RR, which is too expensive)
I like the '13 model, mainly because of the slipper clutch, which my CBR has, but I can't bring myself to spend twice what I paid for my CBR1000RR.
I do think the new generation will be a force to be reckoned with, controversial looks aside.
This '12 model is priced well enough to convince me to grab one. I would love to keep my Honda, but my garage is getting a bit ridiculous.
Now. My CBR has about a 50 hp advantage. I realize the Triumph has tremendous torque, and is a blast to ride. I'm not saying I wouldn't love it. I've just never ridden one.
My question is for anyone that went from a literbike, to a 675...
Did you miss the raw power of the full liter?
EDIT: Updating 1st post. I purchased the D675R. See post #41.
