2009 Kawasaki ZX-6R vs. Triumph Daytona 675

You've probably heard the phrase, the battle is won but the war isn't over. That little saying certainly could apply in the case of our 2009 Supersport Shootout. After assembling the current crop of middleweight supersport weaponry from the Big Four earlier this year, Kawasakis new-for-09 ZX-6R found itself atop the heap in our annual battle.

It wasn't an easy victory for the Kawasaki, as all the bikes in this class are excellent machines, separated by razor-thin margins in just about every respect. But in the end the ZX had just enough ingredients in the right combination to edge out the CBR600RR, GSX-R600 and R6.

Through the fault of no one, we weren't able to get our paws on a 2009 Triumph Daytona 675 in time to join the Shootout, but recently we took possession of one; its time to rattle the ZXs cage.

The 675 received its first updates since its debut in 2006, so the all-new 600cc Ninja had a serious title-defending fight on its hands. With its class-leading claimed 126hp (up 3hp for '09) in-line Triple, improved brakes and springy parts, lighter weight and sharpened styling, the Trumpet has no intention of handing over the title on a silver platter.
