I actually got into IH because of my love of scooters, I wanted something thick to possibly save my hide "864F8A44-FEBA-45ED-8B2A-36B5122C1CCA.jpeg"

@louisbosco the Daytona 675 always had good reviews, but that might have been due to a parochial British press. :)

The Suzuki GSX750 might be worth considering too. A lot of people thought that it was the sweet spot between a 600 and 1000.

yeah i've always loved triumph for what it is worth. but i've been reading that the 675 is under powered compared to the same class during it's time. i'm not sure about a gixxer, never been a fan of suzuki (unless it's a hayabusa) and honda, which is why i didn't think of the CBR600RR.. i know the R6 has been proven for it's time when DR46 rode it, and you can get one at a pretty decent price

I've not heard that the Daytona is underpowered. It does have more grunt in the mid-range, or at least was reputed to, so maybe the top end suffered.

At the end of the day, you're probably not going to notice (or need) more than 100 bhp outside of a track day. :)

You're not going to notice a slight lack of power, especially if it comes as a trade in for more character. The Triumph 3-cylinder block is legendary.

Hey guys! New to the forum and IH (just got IHSH-62 and have 634S ordered) and figured my first post might as well be in the motorcycle thread. Here’s my Road King Classic. Cheers!

what would you guys recommend in the 600cc sport bike department?

i've been looking at r6 from 2008 onwards plus some 675daytona and zx-6r..
When i rode in Germany this summer i had a Honda 650 and I loved that thing specially if you are more of the beginner , perfect bike.

Thanks guys!

@neph93 those are the IR 8086... but since then I’ve got the Wesco Boss 7400s so those particular IR’s aren’t getting much time. Do love my 8111’s though for work on the farm
