Same bike as last year, with a face lift("sleek", "chiseled", "subtle", "vibrant").



Gotta love that triple howl!

Their website(s) still suck!

I hope they aren't paying anyone to maintain the sites. 'Cause they ain't!

I've said it before, I wonder what the people in Newnan (That would be Triumph USA HQ) do all day?

Wow! An off-road use only, oval high mount carbon fiber silencer.



Does this mean it'll come with knobbies too? Jeez, I guess it's time to sell my old XL600.



I expect a full off-road test soon.

I'm in love. I like the new lines. Good price too. Maybe a VFR is still too much of an old guys bike for me. :)

I agree. You think that could do better than that. Buell's site is better. Too bad the bikes suck.

So if I paint the air ducts on my 2002 Daytona, put a stripe down the front so it looks like two seperate headlights instead of one, change the logos and the font on the speedo, I too could have a 2004 Daytona!



Naw, I'll keep the one I've got. Now the new Thruxton looks pretty cool...

"Chiseled?" ... um, those lights look like they were recycled from the front end from a '97 VFR. The Jet Black frame/wheels look purty cool, though.

Old guys

Yeah. Honda is considering landing wheels and a special storage rack for my walking cane.

Re: Their website(s) still suck!

One of the things they're doing is looking for a new leader: according to the AMA's "American Motorcyclist", Mike Vaughan resigned as CEO of Triumph Motorcycles America...

Vaughn resigned? Where did you see this?

There was one on display at the International Motorcycle Show in San Mateo, CA last week. The contrast between the Thruxton 900 and the Bonneville was stunning: the Thruxton looked really nice. The guys at the Triumph booth wouldn't let me sit on the bike, though, so I don't know how well the new bars, pegs and seat work... &ltsigh&gt

Re: Vaughn resigned? Where did you see this?

As I mentioned, it was buried in an article ("Triumph Makes Changes at Top" on page 43) in the December, 2003 issue of the "American Motorcylist" but here's a link to an online article.
