Anyone actually own a 2013 yet?

Just curious- are these actually out in the real world yet (actual owners, not just magazine editors, distributor VIPs, etc)

As near as I can tell, no one on east coast USA has one yet.. I'm on the waiting list (I pre-ordered a '13 Thruxton) and I'm like an impatient little kid here!

I am wondering what is different between the '12 and '13, besides red nla and brookland green? I've heard the front hub is no longer polished aluminum. Anyone know if it is still aluminum?

Any other differences?
Jason

There is a 2013 black T100 at my dealer in Ca. I can't see any differences with the 2012 but I critical Triumph eye is now just beginning to develop.

We almost bought a 2013 matte gray scrambler last weekend, but we decided that used would be a better fit for our budget.

The '13 Thruxtons are faster, especially in green. Not that I have any bias...

So you've got yours, eh? Is the front hub aluminum? Are there any other differences?

Matte grey? It doesn't get any duller than that, does it?

Grey is the new grey.
