I understand your tough decision! As the 675 is such a beautiful and well made machine. I had a 13 zx6r 636 and i loved that bike so much! Performed so well but just like you I mostly rode in the city and commuted and occasionally rode canyons. I wanted something more comfortable and powerful as well with torque. In my opinion the fz09 torque is way better than going crazy fast at high speeds . I’m so glad I made the switch. As it is totally different than a sport bike the fz09 is such a beast in every way. I have a 2016 and I love that thing so much. The low/mid power great in the city and the torque on the bike is the best. Always a fun ride on the bike and comfortable as well. A little too uptight for me but I installed some woodcraft clipons to give a little sportier feel and the setup is awesome! No doubt you will not regret getting an fz09 BUT If you have the funds and are able to afford two bikes. I would keep the 675 and get the fz07! The 07 is surprisingly very fast and powerful. You can be doing power wheelies easily on that thing. Very fast and nimble bike. Great for city riding. That’s what I would do if I was able to have two bikes. The Daytona is an amazing bike I would keep it if I were you! This is my opinion of course but let us know what you do! But keep in mind you will always have a smile on your face with the 09!Hello all! First off, I am newto the forums so hopefully I am posting in the correct section! Basically I am torn. I currently ride a Triumph Daytona 675 and love the bike... but not so much riding it on the street 90% of the time. I truly appreciate it for what it is, an amazing piece machinery capable of flying around a track at high speed. However on the road, I am usually either uncomfortable, or riding faster than I probably should on the street. Now that's not to say I don't go on rides and just have a blast, but I find myself missing my old FZ6R for it's ability to just cruise around and enjoy longer rides or commute. Enter the FZ09. It seems like it would be a great bike for me. great for commuting, similar power to my Daytona and gobs more low and midrange. However I am worried I will miss than handling of the supersport. Basically I want to know if anyone else has made the switch, and if they miss the true thoroughbred sports bike, or if the mighty FZ09 with some mods is enough to satisfy the inner squid when the occasion arises. My choices are A. trae inor sell the Trumph and get a new FZ09 (2017 and up) to get the better suspension, or B. Keep the Triumph and get a used FZ07 for 4k. I worry that the FZ07 may be too low on power for me however and I will just never ride it.. I think that I think about bikes too much and not ride them enough I apologize for the long winded first post! Thoughts?
