Really? Does Union Jack Red work better? That looks like more of a zinc chromate green which adds an aeronautical flavor, not a bad thing to me.



This bike, may, prove for once and for all, the intrinsic superiority of the I-3 engine in a street/sport application! OK, maybe not, but this thing, on paper, could be off the charts in the smile per mile category, the Most important stat.



I eagerly await the tests on this bike. I have an inside track to ride one soon after they hit the streets.

Nah, my Bandit's faired. And would I trade it straight up for a naked 675? I don't know. I want wind protection, I want my Givi hardbags, and I want the simplicity of an air-cooled engine. But that triple would be mighty tempting.



I'll compromise - somebody put that engine in my Bandit. Thanks.

don't forget to factor in the "danger to society" tax that canucks put on anything that might be hazardous to your health, like booze ciggies, and motorcycles. covers the cost of sociaized healthcare...i guess

They are going to neuter it!

That is my prediction because 675 out performs the 1050. If it comes with full 675 power then the 1050's version's sales will drop. Truimph for all it's radicalness isn't going to hurt it's own sales like that.



"tuned for torque" is a comming!

Re: Triumph Launches the Street Triple.

It's the snickering when you turn your back that you should watch-out for.

Re: Triumph Launches the Street Triple.

I want one! But first I have to pay off my other two bikes :)



I have a 250, and an 1137. A 675 would be a sweet middle brother. I wonder what the insurance on it is going to run.



And how can you compare it to anything with an engine much bigger than a 675cc?

Re: Triumph Launches the Street Triple.

My predictions clearly are correct so I must know more than you...

Never had any problems with my liquid cooled Ninja. So many advantages performance wise to liquid cooled. Don't be a ksickle and remain ignorant.

What makes you think I need or desire that "performance advantage" when my Bandit is already stupid fast enough without having to do the extra maintenance required for liquid cooling? You are ignorant of the notion that not everyone has the same priorities you do. I value simplicity.

I recently sold my air/oil cooled Suzuki and bought a water-cooled GL1100 for more comfort when touring with my wife. In the process I got worse brakes, 20 fewer HP and 75 more pounds. Some advantage water cooling is, eh?

Only $1000

It's only $1000 cheaper, methinks. I was asking the Triumph guys how much cheaper it would be, and I thought they'd save a lot of money without plastic. They told me the plastic is very cheap. I'm guessing it's made in China, as Triumph just opened a factory there.

Which begs the question; why is it so expensive to replace? Anyway, the big expense with this bike is motor and chassis. I'm guessing the margin is even slimmer on this bike than the 675; it probably is only a few hundred quid less to build.

Seruzawa recently saw 3 Native Americans in single file leaving the casino. Based on his astute observation he generalized to say the all Native Americans walk in single file.
