On a side note Team Latus will be fielding a flat tracker Triumph this year as well as having Desalvo back in the saddle of the 675 in AMA Sport Bike.

The Triumph guy at the NYC motorcycle show said it wasn't coming here, because Triumph didn't want to "dilute" the pool of customers for the 800 and 1200 Tigers. Personally, I don't think it competes with them, apples and oranges if you will. I'm retiring in June of 2014, and would love to buy one of these for a life on the bike from that point forward. The Trophy is an awesome bike, but this one is perfect for one-up long distance touring I think, and my riding gear is all red & black, so that is great too. If anyone can give me more than rumors from which to cling for the next year and a half, it would be great!
