TUSA had a Bonnie Black at Mid-Ohio with the EFI.

The Triumph guy said it ran just like the carb'd version, except there was no cold-start procedure (no 'choke'). He said it appeared to get better fuel economy, but he didn't have any numbers yet.

Triumph: Stepping into the 21st Century with the coolest "retro" bikes on the market.

Fake carbs- funny

Not fake carbs..throttlebody fuel injectors..

Since they're going that route they should pattern them after Amal Concentrics and have a small tank of Blendzal or Castrol R that's trickled in to the fuel stream, maybe a small puff of smoke from under the seat now and then...


Kidding, I think new Trumpies are the bees knees

I thought making FI look like carbs was a pretty funny comment too. I wonder if they can make airboxes that look like those old cone-shaped sponge covered air filters.

Or faux float ticklers with a hidden fuel supply so you can drip gasoline all over the cases.

Ah who cares? The motor looks like a big lump that was copied from the CM400T Honda. Yawn. About as fast too. Tweet tweet tweet goes the exhaust pipes...what a sad ending to a classic design.

awww they're fun bikes and they have a great deal of potential and aftermarket support. I enjoyed the two I owned a great deal, if I was of a smaller stature I'd still have my T100.
