All naked bikes look like ass to me, honestly. But this one is especially bad.

IMO all the pure sport-bikes with body panels look like they came from the same cookie-cutter. Looks are subjective and everyone has different ideas of what looks good (that's why we have the after-market!) What is most important is how well the bike works. The Street Triple simply has nice ergos, light weight (405 lbs with full tank), effortless handling, and a strong powerband. It is supposed to look a bit unruly because of it's intended purpose; fun street riding. I have the matte-grey 2010 model R (with some after-market goodies) but the new one looks awesome and I'm sure the young guys whose brains haven't yet ossified will love it.

I'm clearly in the minority as just about everyone drools at pictures of naked bikes.. just to be clear though, it's the naked bikes that retain plastic bits and pieces that I don't care for. They all look like victims of fairing theft.

Bikes designed from the ground up as naked machines and have no plastics anywhere can look quite good.

It not really the new "style". I love the looks of the new superduke and it has the random front headlight. But the lights look like they were pulled from a zzr 600 and just bolted in place.

I figured you guys wee being too hard on it before looking at pictures. After all, I have a 3rd gen z1000 and think it looks KILLER. However, that thing is something only a mother could love lol. I'm sure it must appeal to someone...

I guess I'll be the first - I really like the new look, and ordered mine (R version, in white) a few weeks ago. Mine likely won't have a flyscreen unless I can find a good looking aftermarket one - the Triumph one looks awful, and is probably a danger when doing stoppies!

I think the headlights look ok after you install the fly screen. What I don't like is, they discontinued the trellis type subframe for a cast. bleck.

I like the newer lights, they definitely look good with the flyscreen.



I'm glad i got a 2012 instead of '13. I dont like the subframe or exhaust.

It just looks like a bag of smashed dicks.

I got a good look at a new Speed Triple R a few days ago. It looked pretty bad-ass with all the bling parts.
