140 IMHO:
  • Larger upright contact patch for most situations
  • More sidewall area for the twisties
  • Looks meaner!
Slimmer tires might be a bit better for cutting through loose / slippery stuff to find traction off-road, and may keep the slim look Triumph wanted for the bike, but I immediately one size up at the front and rear and liked it better.
