That's really nice! I wonder how much weight they've managed to knock off

Nice except for those darn headlights! I'm sure someone will make a kit to retro fit the round lights.

I get it and want it new headlights and all. First thing would be a low Arrow pipe and clean up the rear fender.

Just when you thought they couldn't make the headlights any uglier they come out with this. Beyond that killer bike.

To ME the mandatory non-switchable ABS killed the Speed III. What fun is a Speed III "hooligan bike" if you can't act like a hooligan and lock the brakes and do stopies? Although I'm sure my insurance agent appreciates this feature.

Anyone with photochop skillz? I'd like to see it with a traditional big round single headlight, like the one on the R1200R, or Diavel, even though those are split in half internally, it's still a unified look and more pleasing to my eyes, at least.

Here Here, That should be in the Triumph accessory catalogue, circa 1995.

Naw......

...just install the accessory fly screen that matches up perfectly with the new praying mantis headlamps and it cleans up the looks tremendously.

I love it.

Looks great, it just needs the 1200cc motor (hotted up a bit) from the new Tiger!?!

Looks like it's trying too hard to be cool and phailing.

Everything is excellent, except the headlight. What were they thinking? Just put a bloody ole round headlight on it. It's not rocket science, Triumph.
