+1 I like the retro STD look motorcycle wave coming out and this bike really nailed the look of the decade between '65 - '75. Simple fun!

I really like that they are built on a modern chassis, motor, electronics, and suspension technology. Gawd knows the originals made mechanics out to their owners.


If the good old days were so damn good, why did we bother to invent modern times?

Just in case you grew bored of the retro theme, she's supplied with 96 HP & 83 Ft-lb of T. That's a pretty impressive power output right there! thumbsup

I'd probably run with the Silver Ice & Storm Grey. cool

Adding my votes to the tally. Both very gorgeous machines. I bet these will be some of Triumph's best triumphs!

Are the seats more comfy than they look? A couple of inches of foam on a flat seat doesn't keep my bum happy for very long.

Seems like I need 1" of seat foam thickness for every 1 gallon of fuel tank capacity!

I'm going to say, probably not. eek An hour or two and I'd be done I think. But then again, this bike wouldn't be my choice as a transcontinental flyer. smile
