|Jim Moore||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.|

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.

|Shamrock627||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 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 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...

|bluspyder||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'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.

|Wayne's Striple||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.|

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

|oic0||Never had a bike with one of those shrouds, does it keep the hot radiator air off your legs?|

|Claudius||Looks ok. I am lost as to why manufacturers put those (I have no idea what to call them) "shield/bodywork" over the radiator. It looks lousy on almost every bike. Adds weight, I am quite sure it has no real protective ability for the radiator and it adds cost. It seems a form over function styling exercise that needs to stop. The engine is cool looking - you don't need to hide it. It is a streefighter / neo-brit UJM - why put the bodywork back on that you just took off? Otherwise, it looks ok. Not really fond of what they did with the headlights - it will take some getting used to.|
