Re: [ST] 675 Daytona

Interesting you should say that.  Here's a snipit from a review on the 2006 model.  Not sure what year your buddy's is though.

Our only gripe with the redesigned motor concerns the new dual fuel injector set-up. For years, motorcycle manufacturers have struggled with off/on throttle transitions with their fuel injected bikes. Most of the manufacturers have this sorted out, now. The Honda CBR1000RR is still "snatchy" when opening the throttle. It is something you can learn to live with, and it doesn't really spoil an otherwise attractive package, but it is an annoyance. The issue is underscored when riding one of the better fuel injected competitors, such as Kawasaki's ZX-10R.

Its very classy and smooth, but the power delivery is not right for me.
The mid range feels flat with a big rush at the top. It feels like it
would be hard to ride fast, pick the wrong gear and you will struggle.
