    Today I want a Speed Twin. I've listed a few bikes; if I get some bites I might get my wish.

    I might have mentioned it before, but I’d still love to try the BMW Xcountry.
    Especially the yellow version, completed with a windscreen and crashbars … like this:

    I had one of those, the grey/silver version. It was a good bike, definitely worth trying. I traded it for a 696 Monster, which ironically went on FB marketplace today. UploadFile1634438609.278280.jpg

    Too bad the absurd placement of the stupid TFT screen pretty much makes that impossible.

    I know what you mean.
    I don't know about the Speed Triple specifically, but moving the instrument screen might be possible (and multi advantageous).
    So many of them have weird angles and reflections that make them unreadable.
    The things should be user adjustable, like a car seat, given how the rider's seated height can vary, and give visibilty problems (especially with LCDs).:dunno

    Why not a more "classic" V12 with 2.3Liters and 250 hp? lol

    Stunning bike! Just needs a little wind screen to finish off that instrument cluster, IMO.

    Triumph does make a flyscreen that does exactly that.

    I want the graphics on my 700 today...

    And no I'm far from offended about anyone feeling the 700 is ugly. Lot of bikes I think are ugly too.
