2006 up gixxer 600 vs triumph 600cc...
Which makes more real top end power ? Can you reliably wring the triumph out to 16k rpm night after night? Fuel injection good on the Yriumph? Is one year or more the one to find,?

Don’t know. But, I’ve always liked the Daytona 675, not that I’ve been on one. Just like them and this is a Triumph page. LoL.

I have a triumph, ive had others, thats why I'm here.
I was pursuing triumphs for sale and at auction and had a couple questions as I'm not familiar with the Triumph sport bike stuff.. so I asked.
600cc is the limit. Period. Internals remain stock, no overbores even..
a competitive machine needs to make power while living between 12000 to 16000 rpm, on alcohol .... we try to not let it drop below 12 under green flag conditions
I thought a few basic questions I couldn't find answers to were worth asking...

I know its a triumph page, is why I asked a triumph question here

I’m not claiming expertise on racing bikes, but the 600 Daytona was replaced by the 650 and that by the 675 for a reason. It was apparently heavy. Most of those bikes appear to produce max HP at a little over 12000 rpms, not sure how that plays with running it at 16000 rpms. If you’re planning on racing, it doesn’t seem like the Daytona 600 is necessarily the best Triumph to go after. I didn’t look into the non Triumph specs. My comment about this being a Triumph page was meant from my perspective in that I don’t have an interest in those other makes nor am I interested in digging into their specs. I figured you already had an idea of what they are capable of anyway. Racing bikes are beyond my skill level, but years ago I researched the Daytona 675 before coming down to a bit more sedate choice for myself. From my experience on cars anything can be beefed up, not sure everything is worth beefing up or racing. The Daytona 600 certainly had its victories as in 2003, but it was replaced in relatively few years.
I’m sorry I don’t have the credentials to address your question on running the 600 at the 16000 rpm level. Not sure how many racers are on this forum, but I suppose one of them might be able to answer your question. From my layman’s observation, race engines tend to blow up on occasion and require rebuilding. No idea who makes the most reliable, my interests are based a bit on nostalgia more than analyzing the ultimate make for performance. Again, my reason is nostalgia for Triumphs, and it’s why I’m here. That should not be read as a slight or as a condemnation of your question, it was meant as a reference to my perspective. Good luck in your search. I’d look for a Daytona 675 myself or perhaps its successor the Daytona 765. As I said earlier, race bikes are beyond my riding skill. LoL.

Side note the red range for Daytona 600 is between 14000 to 16000. The red range for the R600 is between 13500 to 16000. Eventually running engines in the red range continuously is bound to end in failure. Since I’ve never raced I don’t know what’s done in practice. I suspect there’s little advantage to going beyond the point of peak horsepower. Again, just a layman’s thoughts early on a Sunday morning. Good luck again on your search.

This isn't on a bike, and it was just a curiosity... I appreciate all the input

Here's my "gixxer"
