    Are you really serious? VFM stands for Value for Money in my parlance. There is no value to GT650 be it in brand or in product quality.

    I wouldn't touch a GT650 with a barge pole leave alone call it a value for money proposition. Triumph is a iconic brand with an extremely rich heritage. Hyousung? Maybe 50 - 60 years from now (by which time I will be in my grave ).

    Dude, are you comparing GT650 with Daytona? :O
    I agree GT650N at its current price is VFM, but its no way close to Daytona.

    Isnt Triumph assembled in Thailand too... and hasnt UK government signed a 'prefered' partner pact with India....

    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.

    Default The prices!!!

    According to Business Standard Motoring the prices of the Triumphs as indicated at Auto Expo:

    The Speed Triple & Bonneville: Rs. 5.5 lacs
    The Daytona 675: Rs. 7 lacs

    Seriously well priced!

    Here I come Daytona.....

    Depends how one perceives it Satyen; added cylinder (I4) doesn't have punch & has to be revved a lot; while the triples needs less revving & more torqy. Personally, I wouldn't say there's an edge or no edge.

    Having said that, here's one small step - Triumph India
