Default Luscious!

Dude, that thing is so luscious! Think how much meaner it will look with that mini fly screen removed. Bring it on in a nice rich yellow and it would be a "Killer B"!

Looks FZ1-ish except for the headlights and the Yamaha goofy muffler is lower than the Triumph goofy muffler.

Oh, shut up. You have more news items posted than anyone. Get over yourself.

I'm sorry, but I just don't get the "factory streetfighter" thing. I thought the whole point of a streetfighter is that cash-strapped kids crashed their sportbikes and put the headlights on to keep the bike streetable while avoiding buying expensive replacement bodywork. Does it come with sanded chickenstrips, pre-ground pegs, a temporary tattoo and clip-on body piercings?



But, to each his own. Two wheels good, four wheels bad.



On another note, I predict that within three years, all of the Big 4 will have redesigned their 600 Supersports to be incrementally faster and lighter. You heard it here first!

Dark Green is the appropriate British racing color.

Naked bikes are cool, as well you know, you own one. Maybe the styling on this isn't your cupo tea, but really it's a badass naked standard with a great engine. Tell me you wouldn't trade yours in for this. I sure would.

look at the Moto Morini corsaro 1200 veloce .... it looks VERY similar.. different motor though. It uses an 87 ish degree twin. .. and of course triumph uses the three banger. but the styling looks .. well you can see. for yourself

It occurred to me that the speed triple looks similar too. .. it must be late for me.
