I purchased my first Triumph a month ago - a 2013 Daytona 675R. Love the smooth triple motor delivery and the unique intake sound. The handling, flickability, quickshifter, ride position all feels so perfect to me. Much impressed with my Daytona, two days ago I bought a new 2012 Street Triple R for my daily 120 miles commute. Previously I have been commuting everyday in a Monster 696. With the Street Triple R I get a more fun, powerful, and smoother motor. The STR also has a larger gas tank which gives me longer range between fillups and it only needs regular gas versus the Monster that needs premium gas.
