    Hi everyone,

    I'm on the verge of buying a 2009 675 in black or a ducati 848, any help and advice would be very much appreciated !!

    Do I:

    1: Go for the Triumph 675 at £7200 incl alarm/immobiliser (deal agreed with local dealer)

    OR

    2: Go for the Ducati 848 at P&H motorcycles at £9395, comes with immobiliser fitted

    I am sooo impressed with both bikes and its a dilemna, must admit im swaying towards the 675 if i'm honest as the bike looks superb,
    Cheers,
    redfreddie

A bitch to keep clean, but the best when clean & shine :cool: :lol: :!:

    You'll get biased information here as we all have a 675 or two. Check out the service interval, service cost and insurance cost. I'm betting the 675 will be a lot cheaper to own. :D

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for the replies, much appreciated !! I'm still so confused about what to do, I'm off to see the 675 at lunchtime today, must say i love the look of the bike . . . I've read all the magazine 600 tests and the 675 came out top and is such a great price at £7.3k, the Ducati is more expensive by £2.2k and isnt included in the magazine tests obv because of its CC. I've owned a 748 and a 996 in the past, superb bikes . . . but i'm thinking i've never owned a Triumph before, it looks superb, sounds superb and maybe its time to go for it and buy one. I can always change in the future if for some reason i didnt like it ! I've now changed my mind at least 4 times in the past few days lol decisions decisions :?

    Points to note are:

    675 has been bike of the year for the last three years
    Trippple engine is fantastic.

I am going to go for black, with the datatool system 4 fitted, arrow slip on and clear rear lense . . . . Lets see if they can do it for the price im looking to pay ;) but if not theres room for negotiation . . . the main thing is I want one !! watch this space

    You've made a great choice in my books, one you wont be disappointed on for sure! To be fair it would always be a biased view asking that question on here but both bikes are good in different ways ;) Welcome to the forum and hope to see more of you here! :cool:

    Hi everyone, I picked the bike up on Monday after 2 weeks of waiting for the bike to get to the dealer, others kept turning up but not mine lol ! What a bike ! absolutely superb despite the fact that i'm only pootling along while running it in :( . . . my 1st triumph experience having ridden a CBR600, GSXR600, Ducati 748 and 996 and i am so happy with the way it pulls even up to the 5000 rev limit while running in, and that sound !! I cant wait to explore beyond that soon :D . . . but all i can go on so far is the looks of the bike and it looks stunning (mines black but loved the red to), the supercorsa's seem good and have heard good things about them in the dry, not so sure about the wet as the rear looks near slick but the guy at the dealers rides it every day and says he's had no isssues in the wet. I definately like the clear rear lense over the standard one and i'm waiting for the Arrow slip on to arrive and be fitted as soon as it comes in. If anyone is interested i'll post up more as i learn more, and also will let you all know what track days i'm doing this year when they come along, cant wait to go around brands and actually use my own bike for once (normally hire them). I found some trackday insurance from www.pitandpaddock.com and was quoted £260 for 2 trackdays including faring cover which i thought was quite good. Right, I'm off to look at my bike :D
