I think the new 2013 model addresses all the issues of the older models that I felt held it back from even contending with today's supersports!

- No more underseat muffler! Yay, it's not 2004 anymore, and the trendy look that cooks your ass and puts weight where it doesn't belong is gone!

- Anti-slip clutch - Finally!!

- Two tone paint jobs on the standard models.

- Lighter wheels.

- Stronger engine components

After my original '06 675 destroyed itself, I vowed never to buy another Triumph. I'm actually reconsidering that now after seeing the new model.

New model doesn't have the same attention grabbing visual details as my 11 did.
I'm still getting one as soon as I finish paying off my 11..

Next time around I plan on getting the R model...

Either that or an MV, if they can match or beat the new tech stuff on the Daytona...

Reason I got my 11 to begin with was because of undertail exhaust....
Side exhaust doesn't convince me.... But oh well, all in the name of progress....

gentleman please! i dont think anyone here is remotely dissappointed with all the "mechanical" improvements. I'm estatic about them. Now will they be any help to me? no.

The big let down everyone is upset about is triumph moving away from being unique and having their own "look". now it just blends in with every other jap bike out there.

true it'll blend in until you leave them all in your dust

in all seriousness though - if all the performance reviews are so great - i'm sure there's a lot of custom modders out there who will tweak it to their liking - maybe even figure out a way to put the older fairings back on (and just widen the air intake port somehow)
