Oh yeah. Triumph should get burned again, right?

Triumph should stick with what is working. Their sales went up during the last year while everyone else's went down.

Classic: Bonneville, etc
Streetfighter: Street Triple and Speed Triple (and maybe the Rocket 3 Roadster)
Cruiser: Thunderbird, Bonneville America, Rocket
Touring: Rocket, Thunderbird (w/shield and bags)
Sport-touring: Sprint ST
Credit where credit is due: Triumph has been more innovative than most or all of their competitors. The Rocket 3 is quite unique...can't think of much that compares to it, except perhaps a new VMax. Their line of Triples is equally unique, and have a fanatical following. And most recently, the Big Twin that's Not a Big Twin T-Bird gets them into the glutted, yet endlessly popular, "heavyweight cruiser" market, without having to bear the stigma of being yet another Harley clone.

Yay Triumph!

What's with the Ducati paint scheme on the S3....where's the nuclear red and neon green? I love Triumphs but there's not much there for me anymore I'm afraid other than a Tiger or Bonnie. I'm glad they're doing well though.

I really want to see the RIII Roadster! That's the bike they should have built in the first place!

Somebody on another site suggested a Sprint ST-RR. Tweaked engine, ohlins forks and shock, trick wheels.

The way Triumph builds their engines so over-engineered, there has got to be a lot of power in the 1050 they aren't using.

I'd love to see a 675 adventure bike. One more off-road oriented than the Tiger.
