Default Re: Triumph Ends Speculation And Unveils A Naked 675.

I want one! But first I have to pay off my other two bikes



I have a 250, and an 1137. A 675 would be a sweet middle brother. I wonder what the insurance on it is going to run.



And how can you compare it to anything with an engine much bigger than a 675cc?

Never had any problems with my liquid cooled Ninja. So many advantages performance wise to liquid cooled. Don't be a ksickle and remain ignorant.

What makes you think I need or desire that "performance advantage" when my Bandit is already stupid fast enough without having to do the extra maintenance required for liquid cooling? You are ignorant of the notion that not everyone has the same priorities you do. I value simplicity.

I recently sold my air/oil cooled Suzuki and bought a water-cooled GL1100 for more comfort when touring with my wife. In the process I got worse brakes, 20 fewer HP and 75 more pounds. Some advantage water cooling is, eh?

Default Only $1000

It's only $1000 cheaper, methinks. I was asking the Triumph guys how much cheaper it would be, and I thought they'd save a lot of money without plastic. They told me the plastic is very cheap. I'm guessing it's made in China, as Triumph just opened a factory there.



Which begs the question; why is it so expensive to replace? Anyway, the big expense with this bike is motor and chassis. I'm guessing the margin is even slimmer on this bike than the 675; it probably is only a few hundred quid less to build.

Seruzawa recently saw 3 Native Americans in single file leaving the casino. Based on his astute observation he generalized to say the all Native Americans walk in single file.
