We went to the NEC bike show yesterday and saw 3 in the flesh.
The 675R and the others were in standard trim, they looked very boring and "jap" looking..
No "Triumph" on the front, just a big hole for the air intake , the front looked very R6 and just another bike to us..
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.
