You got me on the 636, it is pretty sexy. Daytona has the exotic European factor so it wins a close race for me. I can't lump in Ducatis whenever I'm comparing other bikes, they are hands down some off the sexiest bikes on the market.

I guess Triumph is just going with the flow and "modernizing" the look of their brand, or whatever you wanna call it. First they change the logo, then the headlights on the Street/Speed Triples. Now this. Nothing good last forever :(

I love the sound of that dry clutch. Plus you can get the open cover so you can watch it spin

The more the 2013 model has grown on me the more I like it. I still have a few problems but they could all be fixed with paint. I don't think the black bellypan works on any color except the 675R, I still don't get the silver around the headlights, and I'm still not feeling the running light above the air intake. Aside from that though, I don't dislike it. Some things aren't necessarily better than the current gen, but they're not worse.



Eh, I don't like the argument that they should leave it just because most owners won't be able to tell the difference. Triumph's job is to make the best bike possible. It doesn't matter if we can tell the difference, but Disalvo can, and you can bet they want to win races with this new bike.
Everything I wanted to say. Thanks Knolleh

As i said elsewhere, I commend Triumph for the mechanical overhaul (but I suspect the engine will bring far more improvements than the ugly exhaust), yet I wonder how much of the 675 character will remain, but aesthetically, it just looks chubby, which might be why some say it has a Gixxer feeling.

Yes, Triumph needed a new bike, a bike for both new _and_ old customers... a Daytona 1100

In a word: FAIL !

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

After the panigale, the diavel would just be to damn awesome..

ME! I can't stand ANYTHING Ducati makes, I absolutely HATE the V-Twin (or if you own a Duc, an "L" twin). Don't like the noisy dry clutch, or the $300 oil changes, or the special tools you need to work on one.

When I was at Indy GP, they had a Panigale, and personally the fit and finish sucked. The fairing that was around the exhaust didn't fit right, and the same fairing didn't match up to the front fairing, near the throttle clip on. And the owners...ugh. I have only met one in my riding career, that hasn't been an A #1 dick.

In fact, I hate ANY bike, that has a V-twin.

Yeah true, it is just the rattling like an old POS car I cant stand. I was actually thinking of picking up the Streetfighter 848, but from reviews I have heard it just isnt that great of a bike.

The 1199 in all white looks like a boner also, I love it. For the 848 evo, I sat on one and just did not like the ergos on it.
