I have to admit I too thought "Kawasaki" when I looked at it, as many others did here. All the "engineering" must have taken place when the took down a ZX6R to the last piece last year and copied every part. They changed about 3 angles on the tank, slapped on a Triumph badge and called it a day. The fuel injection was done my Keihin, so they stayed home there. They already should know in this catagory, the bikes must be priced within $100 of each other and have at least as good or better numbers so the "price/performance" crowd can get their fill. Do you think the Japanese bikes are all priced about the same, look similar, and perform equally happens by accident? I guess Triumph is willing to beat their heads against the wall and try to compete on a numbers only basis, where they are a certain loser here. I think their talent is in filling niches left behind by other mfgs. and competing well in those areas. The fact that the Bonneville America became their biggest seller should have told them something. I guess they didn't learn the lesson the last 600 taught them.
