New engine. New frame. Lighter weight. More power. Higher redline. Awesome looks.

The more I look at the 675R, the less I like it. I just don't think white suits the revised front end. Perhaps there is too much white.

The red on the standard 675, on the other hand, is really growing on me.



Overall, I am a fan of the stubby exhaust. I am glad that went for that option rather than a full can like on the GSX-R.

A larger rev range can only mean one thing...more of that intoxicating noise.

I wish they would offer the R in more than the one colour, cause the extras that the R version gets over the standard make it one attractive package for the price. That Ohlins suspension and those Brembo monoblocs are just awesome.

it's interesting how manufactures are starting to show more engine and less side fairing. Compare the ninja 250r with the new 300, the cbr250r also shows a fair bit of engine. The old 675R had the fairings covering majority of the engine but the 2013 model cuts back on the amount of fairing, just like honda has done with the new cbr600rr in a way. The 2011+ gixxer sixxer's have the same effect. New sportbikes are starting to have less side fairing and more engine i.e. becoming more naked and i don't reckon i'm liking it

Beautiful bike.

Time to add this to the list of thing I'll never have.

yup, right there between a Corvette ZR1 and the Ducati 1199 Penigale.

edit: I spelled Ducati wrong.

I wish mine had the low exhaust, the underseat version got really hot, especially here in Florida 7

I miss my D675, but I hope a new CBR250 will make me happy in my old age

What prompted the switch, if you dont mind me asking? Overall thoughts and impressions on the D675 as a previous owner?
