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?
