Triumph Daytona 675 R

2013 Daytona combines great handling, higher speeds and harder revving into a sports bike weapon!  This bike was an obvious jump forward in quality for Triumph and is more reliable than earlier Daytona models. It’s hard to find a bike that handles as well as the Daytona 675R and as easy to ride at top speeds thanks to the suspension and Bembo brakes.  It packs in 128bhp, 55lbft of torque and a top speed of 155mph.

Yamaha R1

The R1 will always be a favourite with sports bike fans and blends velocity and drivability to perfection this bike can leave pretty much any other similar bikes in the dust when it comes down to it. It is a lighter more nimble version of the YZR-M1 with a host of electronic riding aids. The compact light machine can flick round corners quickly and effortlessly.  The R1 has a 998cc engine , 197bhp and reaches a top speed off 179 mph but its improved riding position and knee cut outs makes it a comfortable everyday bike to ride as well as a track demon!
