The others looked the same and the white and blue looked the best, just on colour..
While there 99% people said they hated it, and gave the feedback to the Triumph staff on the stand.. But do they care ?

The ST & R looked better than the Daytona, but still again they have the plain standard versions..

Cant wait to see a modded version of both.. But a shame on the Daytona, it just another bike now..

I blame the British society for this. hahaha you all need to revolt or something British like, just no tea can be involved.

It will be interesting to see how sales go this coming year for them then. I think it will go down for sure since 99% of their business is with street riders and not racers.

Here is hoping that Triumph pulls an Acura, in the sense that when the the 2009 TL came out, everyone hated the giant vagina they put on the front bumper and due to sales they had to redo the front end to bring sales back up. But if you ended up getting the 2009 after the newer, better looking models came out you got a hell of a deal.

I dont mind the new daytona, but its not blowing me away (aesthetically), but the performance updates are nice. May pick one up since a majority of everyone hates it

The days of the english fixing something is over..... We ***** and moan as a country and do nothing about anything.. Sorry

They did saw sales of the current Daytona and 675R have gone up since the new bike was launched, doesnt mean to say its due to the new one... But might be..

Yep checked out the video and though it's a tiny better, Triumph still failed really bad.

This:




Over this...





No way... Sorry Triumph but "go your own way" no longer applies when you copy tid bits off every other bike and then apply it to a once sexy bike. With that said, take the wheels off the new bike and put them on the one below. Change the ugly brown covers that for some reason they liked and change them to black... done.
