I couldn't agree more with you guys:
1. The projectors do suck. And the objections about losing them seem to be mostly about fashion, not function.
2. Triumph competes with other manufacturers. If they don't try to improve, they lose. Most of us couldn't exploit the difference between a CBR F3 and a Daytona. Does that mean Triumph should stop developing the bike? If that's true, then maybe we should all be riding F3s and quit kidding ourselves.
3. I love my '07. If you love your first or second generation model, that's beautiful. But don't expect Triumph to perpetually validate your decision by making the same bike forever. That's one of the main reasons why the original company died.
Everyone wants to feel better about the bike they already own so it's human nature to slag the new one. I think the old one is better looking, too, but I won't buy a bike strictly on looks alone.
I'll also reserve judgment for when I can see one in person and ride one.
