I am thinking they dont look so much alike.
Because there is sooooo much difference between these two...
truth is that form follows function. The bottom line is that one will have a Triumph badge on it and the other will have a broken final drive.
Yankee, you owe me a damn new keyboard, and go make me another coffee..
It doesn't, Its just the BMW propeller heads looking for a reason to crap on another brand.
WOW! Do you see that!!! They both have two wheels side cased and a fairing!!! It's a damn clone I tells ya.
Personally, I think they're both damned good looking touring bikes. I'd rather ride either one of them than a Harley Barge (I've had a bunch of them, too), or Gold Miatawing. I lost my love for Beemers after sorting out numerous ABS brake and final drive issues on a '05 GS that I bought new in '05.
I like the thought of the big triple much more than I like the thought of a water cooled boxer.
The new Trophy might just do it for me. We'll see what happens after a test ride.
It looks like the Trophy will have onboard music, but valve checks won't be as easily performed or accessed as your Wing's flat 6, 2 valve per cylinder engine.
Why don't "darksiders" also run a car tire on the front? Surely it must last even longer than an MC tire in the same location.
Please, please, please, no darkside debate.
I'm actually curious to see the answer to GBs question.
Do a google search for 'darkside' and you will find all the 'answers' you want, and a ton of worth while threads turned into darkside debates.
After two Mach III's, an XS750, a Trident, and a pair of K75's, I unequivocally agree. Of the few things
possibly missing in any of them, one was a bit more displacemant - had the K been offered as a 900
(for example), the marque would likely have sold a blue million of 'em, imho.
Kudos to Triumph for doing just that; their line of triples are an impressive lot.
They are sport touring bikes. They will have similarities.
Can I get mine without all that junk and maybe less a few pounds and a few thousand dollars to go with it. All I want is horse power, big bags and maybe a decent suspension. I know a seat and lights are too much to ask for.
I bet it will have really decent lights. Triumph got hammered for the lights on the Tiger 1050 and Sprint ST and in contrast to other manufacturers Triumph listens to that. The last bikes they released (Sprint GT, Tiger 800, Tiger Explorer) all had more than decent headlights.
And in my personal opinion the seat on the Tiger 800 isn't bad (better than the one I had on my R1200GS) and the one on the Exlorer I sat on was pretty damn good in the showroom. Not sure about real world though.
Small snapshots on this thread of the bike in the metal. I'm really starting to dig it.
The Connie 1000 was in the running when I bought my 2002 Trophy. It lost out then too.
