Upgrade Paths: R6 vs. TD675

Hey guys,


Wanted to gauge everyone's possible upgrade path. Right now I'm thoroughly enjoying my R3 and have my upgrade path set out 3-4 years from now. Lots of learning to still do. But definitely looking at the Triumph Daytona 675 vs. Yamaha R6. If anybody has ridden a Triumph Daytona 675 I'd love to get some reactions and thoughts.


What are your upgrade paths?

Hopefully, in 3-4 years, the upgrade path has changed with newer options to choose from

Totally agree!

Planning now for an upgrade in 3-4 years is tough. By then an updated Daytona and R6 will have dropped which could invalidate any opinions about the current bikes.

No upgrade for me. I will add something that rocks the torque wave (Street Triple RX and Ducati's upcoming SS on the radar) but will never sell my R3. Unless finances dictate otherwise I would suggest you hang onto the R3. It's way more fun than a bigger bike 85% of the time unless you live in the land of unclogged freeways and no cops.

It's fun to play the upgrade game but usually doesn't mean much that far out. Two years ago I would not have wanted a 300, that's for sure. Your tastes change and new bikes are constantly coming out.

That being said, I'll probably go back to a bigger bike. I've had my eyes on a ktm 990 smt for a long time, but can't swing that kind of money until my truck is paid off next year. The reliability issues with ktm are also a tough one for me, considering I ride almost every day it's not snowing. The Vfr 800, fj09 and the new striple 765 are also contenders. I do a lot of commuting and am touring more each year, so a do it all bike is a big plus for me.

It will most definitely change in the next few years. Yamaha is due for an R6 update and Triumph has made it no secret their plans with the Daytona. If I was buying today, no question I'd take Daytona over the R6.

Maybe that's how I should've phrased this thread. I am absolutely in love with look of the Daytona and every review I've read has been positive. However, I do agree that my taste may change in the given timeframe. I am thoroughly enjoying my R3.

When I do reach the 3-4 years it'll be a tough decision for sure. A two bike garage would be nice but I just don't see me owning two bikes.
