interesting! though as was said that commercial has zero info. Found a page on new Yamaha triples at http://www.mcnews.com.au/2013_Bikes/...tro_Triple.htm that has some info.
It would be great if they made a middleweight triple, especially if there was a standard and/or ADV version. Bought my first triple last year (a Tiger 955) and it has the best engine I've ever used by far, torque like a twin down low but winds up fast like a four at high revs and the howl at high revs is fantastic. Whatever it is really hope we get them in the US and would definitely consider buying one if they get it right (and Yamaha probably will)

The best application for their triple in a bike that would sell well in the US would be the R6 IMO. The R6 is always rated poorly for it's road manners thanks to know bottom end (and gnarly ergos) even though its rated highly for track use. The bike is due for a major update.

As a Triumph rider I look forward to them bringing any kind of triple to the market.

I just hope they match the color on the front and rear wheels.

Didn't they already say mid-size road bike, with other apps to follow?

I think this is a Z800 competitor, a bike that regularly leads the sales in France and some other euro territories.

And I will already guess 94bhp, offering a 50% restrictor kit for under 21s in the new euro licencing.

One of the biggest complaints about the FZ-8 in the US was that we didn't get the Fazer 8 as an option - with a fairing.

If you like naked bikes, great. I've ridden nakeds most of my life. But for the last 30 years, I've lived in the land of wind and rain, and I'd be riding a Triumph Street Triple R right now if Triumph would only add a sport-touring fairing to the bike as an option. (I know, it doesn't fit the BRAND image of the Street/Speed Triples).

In my opinion, Yamaha needs to have both a naked and a faired option for these bikes to really capture the mid-sized USA market with a new Triple.

Triumph went through a faze of "teazer" advertising. At least they showed a spoke of the wheel but it was still shit.
I hate this form of advertising. Treating us as idiots.

Whatever it is they can stick it up there arse.






Unless its an R1

That triple is clearly a street biased engine, no SS will be using THAT particular engine. Just looking at the position of the intake boots it's clearly not designed for peak HP. Maybe that engine will see use on street bikes, if Yamaha is going to use triples in their lineup then there must be another version of that engine, or at least the head.

Tubular handlebars. Long USD front forks. It's not going to be an R bike.
