Those are fun bikes, sound really cool and the quick shifter is awesome on the R. i rode one of the first ones in WA a while back when i worked at a dealership. i thought about getting one but its just to dam small for me its like a pocket bike and i was really unimpressed with the power band on the highway it felt like it was all noise and no balls up there but it could have been because it was a brand new bike unbroken in. did you get a chance to ride the speed triple? those 1050 motors are awesome and the Brembo brakes they have are amazing i almost did an endo on the highway just taping the brakes.

Thanks!

I'm really enjoying it so far but going to wait for the first service to have some real fun with it. I haven't had a chance to ride either 675 or 1050 before buying but I could only imagine how nice that Speed Triple must be.

The brakes on this bike are awesome too. Its strange having all these go fast parts on this bike stock like the quick shifter. Can't wait until this rain stops tomorrow!

Congrats on the bike... The Daytona are awesome machines, and the R model even more so..
Waiting to see the new style daytona in the fleash, before i decide on buying the R model like yours or the new R..
Something nice about only having to put on an exhaust (stock ecu is writable for $11), and possibly having to respring for a near perfect bike.

I suggest you just cruise around and make people jelly. That's what I'd do. If you haven't already you could go straight up track whore with the Ninja and just use the Duc for street riding. Keep her pretty and show her off.

Congrats on the new toy.

Thanks brotha. I was dead set on the 09-12 model and not at all interested in the 13 even though I haven't seen one in person yet. All the dealers were still asking MSRP on them but I managed to get the price down...it will be easier you to finagle them once the 13's are here for sure.

This thing stock is already louder than my 6R with a LV slip on. The bike is so nimble too.

It gets a lot of attention people love the color. I was thinking about going straight track on the 6R but I'm still finishing up school...I don't think I should have two bikes haha. A fender eliminator, GB racing covers and track fairings will probably be the first items I get.

Glad I decided to go with this bike.

Check out optimum racing fairings, best deal out there and also in sunny CALI...

Great thing about the R model, dont need gearing changes, for most the suspension is just some turns of a wrench away, and lightest bike in class.. a slip on is an easy 10lbs off the bike and good for another 3-4rwhp. The arrow system sounds so amazing!

Right now working on a 2011 model from cali, used with 900 miles.
