    Just saw the interview of Triumph representative, the Daytona 675 at 7 lakh is a very awesome product in that price range, there's nothing launched in India till now to compete and beat it.

    I totally agree with you. But in current circumstances, Hyousung and GM are doing quite well, I don't feel GT650 deserves to be bashed. I'm amazed that an Iconic brand with rich heritage sold a ~1.60 lakh bike and it's engine got seized in run-in period, I haven't heard of any GT650R performing THAT well.

    I agree GT650N at its current price is VFM, but its no way close to Daytona.
    Actually I'm against comparing the two bikes & as I said before, I don't feel GT650 deserves to be bashed. Most of the Indian bikes have quality issues.

    Things change so fast, a few months back Every Toms, Hairy, Dick was uploading articles and asking for votes to be branded as True Wanderer to get a free Non Valuable Brand\Quality bike. And now just because there are more options dissing at it.

    Like it or not, and I say this as a Ninja 650R owner
    1 - The GT650R, and GT650N are the ONLY products in the VFM 500+ cc category
    2 - The Ninja 650R (2011) is no longer a product being sold so it has one category - The Extinct category
    3 - The Ninja 650R (2012) is yet to be launched, if its launched at the same price point or is replaced totally then my point 2 is confirmed, and I would love to hate BAL-Kawasaki more than anything as it would mean even more lag in supply of spares etc

    Having said that I would not buy the Hyosung for its novelty or brand, I would buy it for a different reason

    I would probably love to own a Triumph for the reasons (just like) abhimanyu said!

    That asides, the Daytona 675 is a new category both in India and internationally. An extra cylinder or the lack of it has its edge over an i4 or a twin for a bike of the same capacity.

    PS: the royal enfield c500 is the most VFM 500cc bike in the market.
    (Category is a cluster, ONE machine does not make a category)

    PS: this is NOT a potshot at Vishwas. Am generally saying this in the interest of a more matured discussion towards the topic.

    I assume the above prices are Ex showroom Delhi and by the time Daytona reaches Mumbai it will be OTR almost 7.75Lakhs Approx but the bike is still worth it unless Honda brings in CBR600F at a lower cost than this.

    Brilliant pricing(if true). Jumping in my seat with anticipation.
    Time to start saving and lots of convincing at home.



    P.S Is it official pricing or speculated. I don't think that daytona's price is correct.
