    Details? Is this an 865 or a true 900?

    It is a brand new liquid cooled 900 cc.

    Looks like the seat is good for at least 10 kilometers before your ass would be sore. Just like the current bonnies.

    The Thruxton would be perfect with tubeless tires.

    Another article and more close up pics

    http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/triumph/2016-triumph-street-twin.html

    Quote: The 900cc “high torque” eight-valve parallel-Twin engine was designed to deliver its motivation as low as possible in the rpm range. When compared to last year’s 865cc mill, the 900 puts out 59 lb-ft at 3200 rpm which translates into an 18% increase. Similarly, thanks to the increased efficiency allowed by liquid-cooling, the 900’s claimed mpg is a surprising 36% better than the 865.

    The Street Twin rolls on cast wheels wearing 100/90 R18 front and 150/70 R17 rear Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp rubber. A single front disc of unreleased dimensions is squeezed by a two-piston caliper. A smaller rear disc gets the same from a pair of pistons. A conventional fork is topped with gaiters for the appropriate look.

    Five color options await the prospective Street Twin buyer. Two colors, Cranberry Red and Aluminum Silver, receive tank and wheel stripes. The remaining three colors, Matt Black, Jet Black, and Phantom Black (with a hint of pearl), are all solids.

    I'm liking this model the best for looks, but the Thruxton R has the specs I want. Hmmm.

    This thing is lovely. Expected abs but not traction control. My next bike?

    I think the Speed Twin has traction control. It also has ride by wire.
