Really? Does Union Jack Red work better? That looks like more of a zinc chromate green which adds an aeronautical flavor, not a bad thing to me.



This bike, may, prove for once and for all, the intrinsic superiority of the I-3 engine in a street/sport application! OK, maybe not, but this thing, on paper, could be off the charts in the smile per mile category, the Most important stat.



I eagerly await the tests on this bike. I have an inside track to ride one soon after they hit the streets.

Nah, my Bandit's faired. And would I trade it straight up for a naked 675? I don't know. I want wind protection, I want my Givi hardbags, and I want the simplicity of an air-cooled engine. But that triple would be mighty tempting.



I'll compromise - somebody put that engine in my Bandit. Thanks.

$7999US/$9999Canadian. WTF?? Conversion rates are about 90 cents US to the Canadian dollar , should be priced closer to 9 grand.

don't forget to factor in the "danger to society" tax that canucks put on anything that might be hazardous to your health, like booze ciggies, and motorcycles. covers the cost of sociaized healthcare...i guess

They are going to neuter it!

That is my prediction because 675 out performs the 1050. If it comes with full 675 power then the 1050's version's sales will drop. Truimph for all it's radicalness isn't going to hurt it's own sales like that.



"tuned for torque" is a comming!

Nuda ed agressiva, Corsaro 1200 Veloce è una moto equipaggiata con componentistica di alto livello, aggressiva anche nella veste grafica, destinata a chi pretende il massimo del piacere di guida, su strada e in pista. La Corsaro 1200 Veloce è una "special di serie", una moto nata per regalare divertimento assoluto e prestazioni degne di una vera sportiva.



umbriago!

It's the snickering when you turn your back that you should watch-out for.

The magazines predicted it months ago too. So you're a follower not a leader.
