The Triumph 675 is a carving machine. Here's DB doing his thing on the Trumpet.

The Triumph topped our list in a number of categories, with its sweet-sounding Triple taking top honors in the Low to Mid-range Power rankings.

Braking is yet another area in which the Triumph excels. The fronts have the requisite radial master cylinder and calipers, but they stand alone with the Ducati's as having the only braided-steel brake lines.

The 675's suspension and transmission also received marks near the top of the pack, the latter somewhat surprising due to its lack of a slipper clutch.
