I'm saying that I understand why one of these guys would buy one- I'm not agreeing with why they would. I wouldn't buy one.

Default Re: It has to do with what you said

The definition of 'copy' is 'reproduction of an original'.



With this definition, the closest thing to a 'copy' in motorcycling I can think of would be homologation bikes, which are street legal reproductions of race-bikes.



No-one on the forum seems to share your understanding of what a 'copy' is.



Repeating your copy statement and your mis-interpretation of Yossef's title, calling other people stupid and telling them to go away is not going to get any points across. Except maybe that apparently your arguments aren't very impressive after all...



So you think Triumph may be making a bad business decision, get over it.

And reproducing a Japanese 600 is what Triumph did. What do you think they did? Produce an original?? LOL I don't give a shyt what anyone in the forum understands or doesn't. I said what I said, and stand by it. Calling people stupid is what they derserve at times. You act stupid, you get called stupid. I call em as I see em. My arguments don't need to be "impressive", they just need to be correct, which they are. The Triumph is a copy of a Japanese 600. It's right on the money. The only thing I need to "get over" is stupid people telling me to "get over" something. Hard to get over the truth though.

Default Re: 2003 Triumph Daytona Reader Feedback

Last I heard Triumph had placed in the top 10 with at least one of their Daytonas in most (if not all) of the races they've entered, and have a podium place or two as well. Not bad for "a knock-off of a two year old Kawasucky"... not to mention that they haven't done any sponsored racing in 28 years.

Default Re: Racing Triumphs?

Triumph seems to think that there's enough room in the 600 sportbike catagory for another player, I'm sure there are a few people who would like 600 sportbike performance without losing their bikes at every stop in a sea of R6's, GSXR's and CBR-RR's. Using an inline 4 and frame geometry thats similar to the other's makes sense because thats what works the best, so far. Triumph manufactures almost everything in house on their bikes other than wheels, brakes, some suspension components and some electronic components. To be honest I'm surprised at the level of disdain for Triumph of some poster's, I'm guessing it's some 50's era regression from when Triumph kicked sand all over HD and Indian. Goes with the Harley-burger joint personna, Eh?

How would you NOT lose this thing in an ocean of Japanese 600's? The styling is the same.

I currently have two track/race bikes - a Mille and F4. I am looking for a replacement for my F4 and am seriously considering the new Triumph (though I really like all three of the new Asian 600s). I simply want something different and for it to be competitive. I am confident that the Triumph would at least equal my F4. Hopefully, I will know soon.
