I was holding off on commenting until I saw more. I have to say, it's not terrible. Definitely not as good looking as past models, but for the first real redesign, it's a fairly good first step. The bike's proportions just seem off to me, though, so I'm really hoping it looks better in person. The silver bit on the front is kind of baffling, but something that would be easy to cover up, and while I hated the subframe in the spy shots, I can almost let it go on these official shots. I'm guessing we'll be seeing a restyling in a year or two, at which time hopefully they'll correct the little flaws.

I'm not totally sold and I'm certainly not going to be trading my '09 in for one, but I think Triumph is on the right track. I'll hold my final opinion, however, until I actually see one in person.

I'll be waiting for a proper track showdown before passing judgement. Don't really like the looks to be honest, but I wonder what a race-rep would look like, hmmm. Still sounds awesome though, and that's all that matters :P

Meh. The mirrors don't match the rest of the bike at all. Luckily that's an easy fix. Other than the white and blue version, why do all of them have a grey subframe? Looks like ass on the R and Red versions. I guess it's fixable too, but not as easy as swapping mirrors. It fits the black bike, and I dig the blue subframe on the white/blue one. The silver bit around the headlights only works on the black version IMO.

I hope Truimph doesn't consider us as the target market for these bikes, since it seems like the majority of us don't care for the changes. Unless there are more here who do like it but are worried about getting flamed.

Its just not getting any better is it...
It'll look far better with a proper track set up except for that cheap plastic shizz in the lower side of the tank.

One nice thing about the 06+ was that the under tail OEM can didnt look horrible. The OEM low mont is pretty ugly but still not near as bad as the other OEM low mounts out there.
Why did you give our bike eyeliner?!

You've already got a couple track bikes - get a Striple for the real world. From what I've seen, it's not like it's going to slow you down much.

Ok I guess I'm the oddball, because I really like it. Still a little iffy on the "eyeliner", but overall the sharper edges look great. If it's being released in Feb., I wonder how much later race bodywork will be available?

Triumph Race Support has mentioned on several occasions that they are making the race body work right now for the 2013. Keep an eye out on here: http://www.ukracesupport.co.uk/Triumph.htm

This is the thread he talks about it: http://www.triumph675.net/forum/showthread.php?t=65032
