Either the guy riding it is huge, or the bike is tiny. But IMO, that pipe is nothing, they'll be aftermarket for it within a month.

Wonder how many noticed them trying to cover up the Triumph logo on the clutch cover, with black duct tape. :D

Looks like a second world budget bike. Probably makes 20-30hp and weighs 350lbs. Better off with a lighter better handling dual sport or supermoto if you want a single IMO.

It's made for the former Soviet Union? :eek:nfloor

I think you meant THIRD world.

Second World - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Of course using the definition of second meaning socialist, it could be US bound. :D

Not my cup of tea, but it's nice to see that manufacturers are finally starting to realize that not everyone needs (or even wants) 1000cc+ superbikes for the road. Either that, or they've finally realized they're missing out on $$$ that Kawasaki has been keeping from them for years now. Either way, its good to have options.

I like it, would be a decent beginner bike if the price is decent. I think too many people here are judging it for something it's not meant to be. If you want performance in this kind of package, get a Street 675 R, this one isn't being made for you, it's likely trying to compete with the Ninja 250/300/400-Honda250/500 crowd for the beginner bike segment.

...though it is still used to describe countries that are in between poverty and prosperity, many of which are socialist and former socialist states today
via that link.

I would love to buy a Triumph Street... as soon as they stop making them look like crap. I'm not a shallow person--aesthetics on a motorcycle are lower on the list of my priorities--but those damned head lights? I would feel like a tool.

Great to see competition in the smaller classes, though. Wouldn't it be great to see Kawasaki have to come out with a new model 250 more than once every forty years?
