Default Re: Triump Speed Triple 1050

Anyone experience mushy brakes? I went on the Triumph forum and alot of complaints about brakes. I want one but worry about this. I went to see one at the local dealer and you can pull the lever to the grip with one finger. Maybe I'll spring for the Tuono. Comments?

The Stubby rear end has to go. It looks like it belongs under the big top. Who wants to shell out that kind of money, only to look like Emit Kelly on side profile. Perhaps Triumph is taking a design cue from American car manufacturers like Ford, or dare I mention them, American Motors, with regard to how to totally destroy a beautiful design; i.e., the 56, 57 T-Bird then the 58 monstrosity, or how about the 68 AMX verses the 70 abortion.
