Where do they come up with those mufflers? That one looks like it's from Autozone.

It is actually from a video that is floating around on other threads and sites. The idiot driver did not stay with the bike for better view...

Hopefully it's disguised (tank, muffler) or that's one ugly bike. (and I'm a huge Triumph fan)

I'd bet it's missing some plastic between the headlight and the tank edges - the leading edge of the tank looks pretty raw, not 'sexy naked' raw, more of a 'we're going to hide it with trim' raw.

I doubt it. Look at the wheels. If this is the road version "A la" T800 & T800XC, only the XC has the beak.

I think she's really pretty .... sure an oval muffler would be great
...much better than the 1050 plastic look imho

Triumph is on the move and making copies of successful motorcycles at 3/4 the price. Competition is good.

I guess us Yanks will have to wait for our brethren across the Pond to clue us in - the article seems to be only in the UK version of MCN:http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/Ne...p0611-new-mcn/
