53 ft. lbs is hardly torquey. :-/



Though I am very much looking forward to the bike; been a fan of Triumph for some time now.

True, but if it's a hardcore sportbike what's the point? What class is it going to race in? Are you going to want to ride the thing for 500 miles a day? Or will it actually be fairly comfy?



To me, it just seems pointless to have something that can't race have race ergos.

Re: I meant

You also make a good point.

Triumph not following the mold has always been one of the reasons I like them. I don't like having a bike that you see everyday, yet I do want one that is reasonably priced and reliable with a decent dealer network.

I do suppose that if they make a rule change it'll be raced.

Indeed most supersports, or rather, most sportbikes never see the track.

Perhaps I'm thinking too old for my 25 years, but I don't think I'll ever really want a sportbike. Sure I like to go fast, but I like doing it in comfort and stealth, not a flashy squidly style.
