So how about dropping your new crotch rocket in the parking lot, messing up all the plastic,only to find out that your MasterCard is maxed out, ruling out proper repairs? Can't it be turnedinto a win-win situation? Why not save the dosh and build a mean'n'light streetfighter? Well,the approach has worked extremely well for Triumph, at least with the Speed Triple --essentially a Daytona sans fairing. Its bold, "freshly crashed" looks have endeared it to thehearts of many enthusiasts that'd been growing tired of all those smooth and "designed" fairingpanels, a real punk in disco-land. The kinky Speed Triple has become a bit of a cult object withits distinctive bug-eyed hooligan pose, a virtue that other company's marketing guys would behappy to sell their sisters for. Recently, the question was whether or not the same trick couldwork on little bro' TT600. And the answer is yes, at least functionally speaking.

So what is the new Baby Speed Four like?
