Actually this bike is just a daytona 675 with the fairing removed, down graded suspension and brakes ant those very ugly bug eye headlights which spoil the look of the bike ( the ugly headlights is why i chose a CB600 Hornet )
Dont get me wrong this is a very good handling and high performance naked bike but its so damn ugly...

No its not, different ergonomics, subframe, exhaust, cranks, ECU, more torque and of course different looks. It looks more traditional, more like a hooligan than an athlete. And that's why I personally think is the nicest naked in its class out there. The brakes and suspension are not of racetrack quality simply because its not for the racetrack, its a ROADSTER, but if you want racetrack suspension and brakes get the Street Triple R.....

I agree it has a different subframe and crank and a reprogrammed ecu as well as different riding position.
From all road tests ive read on this bike the engine is fantastic with a wide torque and power spread making it the most powerful of the 600cc class (altho it is 675cc )
But looks are a bikes greatest selling point and this bike does not look attractive the engine and frame look like a plumber on drugs created it and the front end with those awful headlights , What were they thinking.
A street fighter headlight and cowl would have made it look so much better.
I know this bike is a great performer
Its the looks of the bike where it fails big time.

The thing with looks, style, and taste is that everybody has its own idea. I bet that if we make a poll about the looks and style of the Triumph Street Triple we get equal points for good and bad.
