F3 675 or 800?

Before i start, here is a little info about my experience level. I'm currently running a panigale 899 for the track in intermediate level. I also ride regularly on the streets. My street bikes are a '15 dragster plus a few '15 super bikes - i track the super bikes too.

I'm thinking of getting a 675 to practice on the rack with. I want something with less power to use for the track that is similar to the Japanese 600s and i want all the electronics. The problem is most reviews say to go with the f3 800 and forgo the 675. Other negative reviews include the electronics on the 2013/2014 models saying they work against the bike.

Is there any English reviews on the 2015 f3 675 with eas 2.0? I'll settle for a dubbed review since Europe seems do be more active on these things.

I ordered a new F3 800 for track use. Maybe the 675 in similar trim is just as fast, but maybe the 800 engine will live an easier life? Hard to say.

Get the 800 and ride it for a while normal mode. When you're ready switch to sport mode. If you start with a 675 and you get used to it there's nowhere to go.

I'm not looking for power. My question has more to do with the way the 675 feel vs the 800 on the 2015 models. I can't seem to locate a dealer to demo both.

On the track the "slower" bikes can carry more speed into the corner because braking is done differently depending on how powerful the bike is. I dont know what your local track environment is but on race weekends the racers practicing on ninja 300s, r3s, and rc390s can out ride some liter bikes through the really technical corners. They get pass on the straights and faster sweepers but when that hairpin pops up the slower advance riders will get pass by the racer on a small bike. For strictly street use i have a s1000rr since i like to have a lot of low end grunt to compensate for less than perfect road conditions and the fact that i can't keep the throttle pin like the track.

Supersport,
The F3 675 and 800 are chassis wise almost identical, weight wise as well, the 800 obviously has more power and torque so will arrive at the end of the straights faster, so brake markers will be different.

A really top rider on a 675 will be able to match or better an average rider on the 800, that's simply how it works. If you want to prove a point get the 675, want to buy a bike that will flatter you and be easier to sell on get the 800. My two pence (cents) worth.

I second jimbo...I prefer the 675 but it will be easier to sell an 800. Both bikes are identical besides displacement/power.

I am leaning towards the 675 but i'm worry about the twitchy throttle reported by the reviewers. i know these things are sometimes a personal thing since every rider's expectations is different. So i'm just here to see if anyone have some feed back on their 675s and 800s.

don't get me wrong but I think there is no EAS 2.0 on any of the F3's yet, only upshift, no downshift. And the twitchy throttle should be fixed by now on all of the newer bikes or the older ones after the latest ECU updates

I haven't had any twitchy throttle issues on the track with the 675. I turned the electronics off as I didn't like them though. I still think there's a tiny delay when blipping for downshifts, it's just not as instant as other systems or carbs. I've got used to it now so it's not really a problem.

My 675 throttle isn't that twitchy, at least in mine.
