I'm still not sold on it. Particularly hate the silver "eye shadow"

I can't stand that new sub-frame.

WTF are they thinking.

Is that a built in frame slider right next to the fairing labels?

I'm thinking that the middleship exhaust, slimmer subframe and less complex swingarm should make for 5-6 lbs of weight savings.

And it's not the firs time Triumph applies "makeup" to their bikes, look up the "girlie" Tigers.

It's... okay. I wouldn't turn it down if someone were to give me one, but it wouldn't be at the top of my "pretty bikes" list either.

Personally, I prefer the first gen (06-08) looks over the 2nd gen. But both of them are better than the new one.
Same here.


I really hate that they changed the tank logo. The old triumph "classic" looking logo was WAY better.

And this new design looks like absolute SHIT. Same with the speed triple..... ditching the round lights? Are you kidding me?


That, and not coming out with a literbike ever. Triumph made SUCH a comeback in the last 10 years and they are just fucking it ALL up.

Wow the older 675s are some of the best looking bikes. This one looks cheezy IMO. I really don't care for the frame, swingarm, and subframe. The silver eye liner is really weird. I miss the undertail too.

The Speed/Street Triple headlights do look a lot better in person when the flyscreen is added. It's grown on me. The new Daytona? Not so much.

They are doing fine, they are making bank with the 800cc Tigers and the 1200cc Explorer.The "adventure" bike market is hot right now and makes much more sense for Triumph, and that will probably allow them to fund the R&D for a literbike.

I wish Honda would change up their CBR600RR as much as Triumph and Kawasaki change up their bikes.

The trellis subframe looks different (looks like its cast now, instead of welded steel); I don't like it. I think the rear end looks better though.

seriously.

Honda hasn't changed the 600RR since 2007. and since then, it's gained a few lbs, lost a couple horsepower, and got uglier fairings.

what's taking so long to update this bike???
