Still no upside down forks?
Ugh! Triumph, that smells of budget bike.

No view of the 'Silencer' side.
Is there a hugger fitted as standard?
How much is that Top Box going to add to the price?

love the styling, pointy and modern but grown up.
the paniers are a decent shape too, unlike my stupidly curvey versys ones that you cant fit anything square in properly
i am starting to hate the increasing trend that manurfacturers are using super-scoot exhausts on their proper bikes! triumph dont even do a super-scoot they really are following the herd!

Its another Honsuzyamakaw, unfortunatly these bikes all look the same,reliable appliances but no individual style to stand out from the crowd.

Remove the exhaust to remove the wheel! What planet are you on? Can't you see its got a single sided swing arm? Muppet.
Whole point of these bikes is they look normal, build quality is excellent and there's nothing much to separate them from the crowd . . . until you open the throttle and everything changes. That triple motor is fantastic; loads of drive and a great sound.
Personally I think its a great bike and its British.
Can't help but worry about how its going to do against the VFR1200. Time Triumph brought out a 1200 triple?

Why only a 20 litre tank,thats not a touring size its a weekend round the block job.The panniers stick out too far,a common problem on bikes because the makers never seem to realise that there is a lot of space underutilised between the pannier and the wheel.
That said it looks rather good.
