Triumph 675 v. Ducati 848

4700 27
The latest Cycle World has the 675 w/ a TKO over the 848! Hmmmm....they really didn't say anything very exciting about the 848. I thought it was a better bike then a 675 ???
Also CW did a great piece on airboxes and Helmhotz resonators....interesting stuff!

The 675 is a nice bike, though I never got along with the ergo's.

The 848 isn't anything overly special compared to the Daytona, they're both unique in their own way. The 848 is also the low-end where the Daytona is a bit more middle-end for Triumph.

I LOVE Ducati, but I chose the 675 over the 848... now I have a big bore 675 with +2mm pistals (726 now)! I just did the first test with it this past weekend. It is an amazing bike! AMAZING!

Here are some shots from the weekend... it's not done, but it is getting there.

Cycle World effin sucks. The 848 whips ass over 675 any day of the week.
ride them both back to back, i had the chance to do so recently and while i loved the 848 and really enjoyed ringing it out, the daytona is the bike i will be taking home (here in toronto, the local ducati dealers also sell triumph and the price difference between the two bikes is roughly 5500$).

The 848 had a wee bit more grunt in the low end, and what felt like a way longer 1st gear, it also felt bigger and around now a bit more unweildy than the daytona.

The little daytona was just like a pocket rocket. Revvy like an i-4 but with handling that i can only describe as telepathic.

The ducati had a far better fit and finish, awsome dash cluster. The 848 is a stunning bike, but to say that it completly crushes the 675 i find to be somewhat of a mis statement.

DESMOWORKS: can you PM me where i can find some information about the displacement upgrade for the daytona that you have? thanks!

I loved riding my buddies 675. Probably the best '600' I'ver ever ridden, small, great handling, great torque, and good top end. Given the choice, it would be a hard decision, but at the end of the day, I probably would get the 848 just because of the power/torque/looks etc.

But in a perfect world, I wouldn't mind having either as a track bike.

The 09 675's made some improvements over previous models but I don't think the match the fit & finish a Duc. I saw the 09 675 LE recently. The White looks nice but the Blue shows off some cheap looking plastic.

I would probably go with the Black or Red version over it...I haven't ridden either but if they are similar on the street than it's hard to justify the $5500 difference nowadays.

Hi Anthony,
Yes, I got a chance to see it in person and I really like it. What's more, the missus thinks it's beautiful so I've got a green light from her to get one if I want. What I have to do now is take a 675 for a test ride to make sure I like how it rides. That should happen a little later this week. I'm sure it will feel a lot different than my 749s or my Tuono. I hope you guys have been keeping Aldrin in line down there.

Ha, he keeps me in line :eek: It is much different than either of your current bikes... definitely take it for a ride and see how you like it. Let us know if you get it!
