First gen is 06,07,08, (and a teeny bit of 09). Basically 3 years. Second gen is 09, 10, 11, (and probably a teeny bit of 12). Basically 3 years. But yes. It's getting a bit long in the tooth.

I wish they would put an 800cc engine in it though. Take some of the GSXR 750's thunder away.

Probably just prototypes, they'll probably end up all black like every other bike mirror.

Wut.

Did NOT expect this. Especially if they overhaul everything aesthetically than it's gotta suck to have just bought a 675R since presumably they'll completely overhaul its looks too.

Honestly I've never had the seat get hot on me... I mean I've been hot but I could never realize it was from the seats, and I ride in weather ranging from 40 degrees up to 100. Huh.

Definitely looking forward to seeing more though!

I'm surprised no one else saw the 675R for what it was - a (genius) marketing scheme to sell as many old units as possible for full price. Track tool? Please. Most of the people on this board are too scared to track their beautiful standard 675, much less an R.

Bahahaha.

Brilliant.

A potential argument against this though is if this isn't a 675 at all though...

We can dream, can't we?

The petty jealous part of me is bummed that there is going to be a cool new bike so recently after I bought mine. I hope I don't like it

this is a hundred percent spot on. throw on an amazing suspension, jack the price up to cover the cost while basically re-selling an 09 with updated bodywork and gauges? minimal work, overall better bike, easy transition, bleeding old inventory - genius. my only problem was popping the R label on a bike that hasn't any any upgraded engine work, but they basically had to do that to sell as many units as they wanted to. bad for the daytona (and triumph) name long-term, but good for the short-term business. same opinion on the new triumph logo, like seriously you're going to change one of the most prestigious and recognized logos in motorcycling history??? anyhoo.....

it'll be extremely interesting to see how this competes with mv's 675, supposedly that's going to be a ****ing beast. i personally thought that triumph would wait until mv's release to update their 675 to pirate some ideas and tech off of that, but apparently they're pretty confident if they're releasing the new daytona in 2012.

Let's play a game of calling things that will happen with this bike. Ego points for people who are right.

I'm calling it: Single-sided swingarm.

I know, it was so misleading since the Street Triple R's engine is completely different from the Street Triple.



Just kidding with you, had to play devil's advocate, haha.
