By George I think he's got it! wink Only one pic? How did the test rider react to the interest & picture taking? Good looking bike from that angle, thanks.

Nice web page BTW. thumbsup

Pat thanks for the kind comments.

As for the test rider he was ok, if a little cold.

England is still a free country and it was on the public highway so I just clicked away, crappy phone picture though, so I had to lighten it a little.

Triumph has been having a good reputation as of late. It's good to see some competition. Keeps the market healthy.
The bike looks as Adventurous as one would expect. I wonder if any are poking around the American South West testing for heat and dirt? Maybe Triumph tested in N Africa...

cAST wHEELS tell us it's the "Road Version" .. not the "XC" off road type.

XC will have 21" front and spoked wheels.

Either version could honestly be my next scoot.

Love that triple mill.!! woot..

Great picture. Think there are bunch of them in boxes somewhere in Georgia.
