Maybe the Street Triple 800 isnt going to be a good thing...thoughts?

So I was just thinking about the street triple 800. The relationship between the daytona and the STR was one of the main reasons I bought a street triple. Tons of stuff from the from the 675 bolts right on to my STR, right down to the complete motor. When they make the move to the 800 I fear the development of the Street Triple will suffer.

Triumph will constantly keep developing the Daytona being its only Sport bike and huge popularity. Most of that technology trickles down to us lowly Street triple riders. Triumph can easily extract more power out of the street triple to keep it competitive. Hell, I put daytona cams in my 12 and it'll eat 600's and fz's on the track all day long. Also if the Street triple 800 motor feels lazy like the tiger 800 just kill me now... Thoughts?

I believe they will offer a Daytona 800 eventually. Makes sense since MV has done it. Just my thoughts.

I'd rather have an 800 version. 140-150hp would be perfect with the daytona frame/geometry. I don't want or need full literbike power. The street triple 800 won't be lazy. No designer in their right mind would just slap the tiger's version of the 800 in it.

If they build a Daytona 800 it could quite possibly be one of the best bikes ever built. There are many that believe the GSXR-750 is the best all around street bike ever. With the torque curve of the triple and refinement of a triumph it would surpass the GSXR-750 hands down.

You can stop worrying, there isn't a Street Triple 800 - however there are plenty of real things to worry about if you're that way inclined.

Triumph will do away with the 675 for the 800. The plan where I read from MCN was 115bhp for the standards and 125bhp for the "XR" I think they're calling it. It'll behave nothing like the MV either. More focusing on low and mid range than top end . I personally think the Triumph will be a better motor than the MV. I did a good 150 mile test ride on a 800 Brutale a while back and liked it. It behaved more like a track bike. All up top. Tame till around 9k where it would almost break grip and try to kill you..
The new 800 will most likely ride like a Speed Triple with a serious weight loss which would be outright spot on. Expect " Motorcycle Of The Year" type of hype.

However with that said my 675R isn't going anywhere. If anything I'll do the Daytona cam. I have a pretty good bond with my Triple.

Not sure if trolling or if trying to help. Funny shit either way.

I don't get the idea of 800cc class. If 600 is too small for you, which it isn't for 90% of the people, go buy a liter bike. There are bazillions of those available in every color shape and size.

If and when I am ready to get something bigger than STR, I will just get a Super Duke R. If I am going to pay price of big size bike, insurance of big size bike and handling of big size bike, then I am going to ride a big size bike.

There's a lot riding on how you ride.

If you can get an 800cc power plant inside a frame/chassis like the 675s and keep the rolling weight within an additional 10 or so lbs, that'd be the reason to own one. MV can do it without any real weight penalty, so I'm sure Triumph could.

A 425lb bike with 130 at the rear wheel would simply slay! A 460lb bike with same hp, not so much.
