    Looks like it got the Dayton 675r paint scheme.

    Bar ends and a fender eliminator. I dig the ultra tiny fairings holding the radiator.

    Good call although I'm talking about one of those tiny lil fairings above the headlights. I dig those on the speed triples.

    Love the style, but when I demoed a 2012, it did nothing for me. Then I demoed the Tiger 800, and fell in love/lust.

    White was an option from last year though the main thing is finally giving the R model the same treatment as the Daytona and Speed R's with a red sub frame.

    Fly screen and yes it does make both the Street and Speedy much nicer looking.


    Overall I have mixed feelings about the 2013 model. A little too angular imo.

    But meh, I'd rather have a Speedy anyway.

    "Pixie hat"

    It could also use a "belly pan".

    EDIT: I clicked on the picture and there they both are on the website pic! Winning!

    I think "fly screen" is the proper term. I just wish they would go back to the round headlights.

    I like the color combo, really hate that they are adding more plastic to the bike, even though it's not that much, it's a step down a slippery slope. The exhaust is something off a Japanese super sport.

    If you look at the evolution of the Z1000, it did this same exact thing. A proper naked model to begin with, that added more and more plastic as the years went on. If you strip the current Z1000 of all of its plastic, it's a hell of a sexy bike. All things indicate that Triumph is slowly clothing their bikes as well.

    I dunno if I'll own another speed triple or any of their triples. Their prices are going thru the roof at least in Canada. I can get a new V4 Tuono for less than a new basic Speed Triple. And the V4 will smoke a Speedy. Forget about their R models as the Speedy is edging close to $20,000. After 4 Hinckleys now I refuse to pay their outrageous prices.

    Some years ago, a Triumph Company spokesperson in England told me that they had BMW in their crosshairs. To me it seems they've sort of forgot about anything else because the Speed Triple at least was overdue for the
    1200 triple engine but they've let the bike go stale imho. My 06 with suspension work done imo is as good as the new ones.

    As far as the Street T and 675 goes, it may be lighter etc but it's no match for the 1050 coming out of a corner. The smaller bike enters quicker but as you hit the apex the little guy is slowing you down while the 1050 is more than ready to go full chat.

    I demo'd a speed triple and street triple the same day. The extra torque of the speed's 1050 motor is awesome, but the extra 66 lbs. it carried over the street is not. I have no regreats getting the street...or for not waiting for the 2013 model. I like the look of the undertail exhaust better.

    Our prices are still very reasonable and thousands below the Tuono. Otherwise I'd be buying a Tuono. :mrgreen:

    I hear ya on suspension. My '07's suspension is fully built with an Ohlin's rear. It makes a huge difference. It's still ass heavy and you can really feel it when pushed on the track.
