Not impressed. Echoing much of the commentary on here, this seems to be little new development from the 13+ gen 675. I do like the new dash and the idea that there are increased electronics (presumably, both of these are from the Street/Speed Triple), but everything else, other than a larger (albeit not more powerful ?!) displacement, seems effectively the same to me. I agree with another poster on here that this is likely a signal that Triumph has not put any new R&D in to a new 765, so this is likely the last time they'll make it. I mean, if there is a newly designed 765 to come in 2021, that would be pretty shtty to the people who bought this LE if they paid a premium for something that isn't as cool as what is to come for mass market. I don't think Triumph would be that mean spirited (or stupid) to screw its base like that. Even $17K is nuts to me.
I'm looking for a new track bike to get used to get back in to racing in the next year or two. I was hoping this would be it. It will not. Similar to other posters, I may go with an F3 800; or even a Panagale 959. I'm sick of supersport, am not in to 1000s but want to try something new. Maybe I'll just go mini (250) class...
