Being lightweight and ultra thin maybe to the determent of foreign folk but that's going to prove smack on in the Indian scenario... who doesn't like being nimble with a sports in India? I like the Daytona so much that i'd give up a litre class for it. Issue i'd face with the Speed triple is FE and tank capacity I think...
    Erm, if my memory serves me right, Daytona's redline is 14.5k and the Japanese 600cc inline-4 class redlines at 16k.

    I stand corrected. What I meant was 1000k more rpm than its previous versions (which I know is due to a better/lighter alloy used for their core engine parts) and more midrange torque than the Jap counter bikes.
