I have a subscription to Bike. I agree with you pdad13. Usually they are harder on Triumph then others...

If they can make 600s with 130 hp (as in the new R6) now, why not make a LIGHT 500 class bike with 100 hp

Buz, I think most of us would be more likely to buy the Sprint.



But there is potentially a very compelling story if the 675 is anything close to what Bike says it is.



The little company that (finally) could?



And, yes, you are old.

Someone at the gym told me 40 was the new 30!

Don't feel bad. A friend of mine who's in his 30s recently bought an SV1000S. He hadn't ridden in a number of years. We went on a ride in the mountains a couple of weeks ago and after a couple of hours he started complaining about his wrists. I told him that some superduperfantastico motorcycle genius experts advise that he could solve all comfort issues by going to the gym regularly. He responded, "I do go to the gym! 5 times a week! These bars suck!" I told him that since he goes to the gym regularly that he is actually really comfortable and all the pain is in his head. He responded, "#$@#@332$#$^#!"

I go to the gym 5 days a week too but after a 650 mile day on my Ducati, the pain is clearly not in my head!

I'll tell him, but I think he's going to get some accessory bars to raise them.

Bonus points for not spelling pique "peak." All this talk about the advantages of a triple regarding torque (better than a four) and peak power (better than a twin) misses the main point - triples just sound so cool.

That scrambler looks like my CL350. Except for the pipes being on the wrong side. Those wacky Brits.



As for the street bike, it looks kind of, er..Japanese to me...
