In an unfortunate turn of events, Triumph just purchased back my '13 Daytona 675R due to mechanical failures. I have been left with no bike for 50+ days, and my season dwindling. Sort of feeling like I have been forced into buying a bike, when I did not expect to, and I have decided on the 750.

These things are crazy on insurance when compared to the Daytona at 750/year full/max coverage.

Top choices were:

1) GSXR 750
2) R3 (Crossed this one off due to repeated poor reviews on the suspension)
3) R1S (A bit more than I wanted to spend, and difficult to choose over the 750 when Suzuki is offering 0% financing)

8 years street riding experience '09 Ninja 650R > '13 Daytona 675R > '16 GSXR 750.

Been to the dragon, did a track day at NYST, but can usually be found around Bear Montain Park, NY in the early morning on weekends.

In addition to riding, I own a website called MotoMeets, in which I aim to provide a platform for motorcycle enthusiasts to connect via attending events or creating their own, and then sharing those events with the motorcycle community nationwide.

Looking forward to becoming a part of the community here.

Just curious, how are you finding the GSXR 750 compared to the 675R? Comparable performance? What's better, what's worse?

Triumph, bought your bike back from you, b/c of issues with the bike?

Well, I just got back from day one on GSXR. Honestly, I am enjoying it more than the Daytona right now.

Comparable performance for me, I think that a lot is dependent on the skill of the rider.

I like the gearing on the GSXR, 2nd gear is so usable from low speed hairpins, to high speed sweepers.

I enjoyed the softer suspension of the GSXR...but then again, I specifically had the Daytona tuned on the hard side.

Brakes on the Daytona were better, but that is full brembo/braided lines.

My GF likes the sound of the Daytona better lol, but hopefully that will change when my Akra slip on arrives.

I was hesitant about the stock tires, but they are performing much better than I expected. I became a tire snob with the Daytona, only riding Pirelli Supercorsa, but the Battleaxe 016s aren't half bad.

I hate that the clutch lever has to be pulled to the bar to start the bike/find neutral. I imagine this is something that can adjusted.

Yes sir. It spent more than 80 days in the shop (during riding season here in NY), in the last year. I was patient, I gave them 5 attempts to fix the motorcycle. On the last visit, it was in the shop for 5 weeks before I emailed everyone at Triumph...including CEO, CFO, etc. I got a phone call for the buy out offer 2 days later.
