If I was in the market for a new supersport, I would consider it along with the new bikes from the other manufactures, I like my Triumphs but I would still buy something else if I thought it suited me. Most of the new design elements are done with racing in mind, the exhaust is better down low for racing and centralizing the mass, just as Mac stated the internal engine changes are aimed at supersport racing. Any of these new 600 class bikes are overkill on the street as far as performance goes, every time I ride a redesigned model of a bike, it's been better than the previous one, sometimes slightly and sometimes more. Triumph for its size compared to their competition, has done well in recent years with the model range they offer, and given the state of the world economy, competition is stiff in the new bike market for people's money,wait until it's ridden and tested to pass judgement.
