Looks better without the Ray-gun exhaust.
For some reason I really like this bike a lot. But I feel like I'd be better off just buying an R9T.
I don't know, Slippery Sam still looks good with his Ray-guns!
I'm nitpicking on this beautiful Triumph.
I would respectfully suggest a Hugger over the rear wheel...
...and my name on the title. (stole that idea from JBSmith's earlier post)
My '00 Kawasaki W650.

Were the BSA 3 rebadged Triumph 160 3?
The Rocket 3 was a T150 Trident with the cylinders were inclined forward to differentiate the two models. When Triumph developed the T160 after the discontinuation of the BSA marque, they used the inclined engine as the basis for the e-start motor.
Exactly, whereby the extra room afforded by the carb's relation to the inclined cylinders allowed room for the starter, but fouled access to the bottom of the float bowls and the main jets.
The T160s were built at Small Heath by the former BSA workers. They called them RoDent's, because of the hybrid engine, combing Rocket and Trident! I owned three, wish I never sold the last one!
I can imagine. A T160 has been on my bucket list for many years. Rode a friend’s just a short distance once, and thought it was truly remarkable.
Susie always thought Rockers were cooler then Mods!
I keep coming back to this Speed Triple ... sure looks nice. Though the seat could be enhanced, IMO.
