Default WOW

First, the Rocket III and now this? Maybe that factory fire they had a while back lit a fire under somebody rear end.



It's nice to see a company with grande huevos! Go forth and conquer, Triumph.

Perhaps we shall see the war rekindled? Nobody will buy the Hayaugly when they could buy this instead. I am sure Suzuki is already sharpening their pencils....

Yeah, it's pretty cool that triumph is going to the edges of the envelope. I've always been a fan of excess.

Interesting, if not exactly inspiring design.

If the text is correct, Hinkley is finally tring to get unique, to try to differentiate itself from other manufacturers, but I don't think going after the Hyabusa is the way to go. IMO they should stick to the 3 cyl. on all their bikes. Style wise, they need to consolidate some common thread throughout their line, this looks like something different, at least on that mark. Maybe a design effort to test public reaction, and redesign the rest of the fleet?

Default hopefully this will push suzuki to tweak the 'busa

considering the new R1 (and gixxer1K for that matter) matches or beats 'busa power on 300cc less, it's about time suzuki woke up and updated the old mill to 225hp+... i only care because i want to use the motor in a track car. on two wheels all of this is madness. my 75 hp 900SP and 90hp 748 are both faster than i am so i don't need more power in a bike...



the triumph motor would not be as useful to me though - because of the higher price tag it's less likely to be bought by squids who'd crash it in the first 500 miles and that's what ensures a ready supply of 'busa motors, or alternatively makes buying a brand new bike and parting it out on e-bay financially attractive.



so yeah, uhm, THANKS, triumph

Agreed. They're obviously trying to step up their level of competition for the big four. I'm sure that everyone has seen their new ads featuring new (cheaper) prices for all of their existing models. Now, we learn about these two new bikes and it certainly appears that they are sharpening their rising son sickle...

so just turbo a busa motor. they are getting 300hp/150 ft-lbs reliable street motors out of it, or 500hp 225+ft-lbs race motors.
