Bring back the old headlights, then it would be perfect

thats part of it. but when i went to the demo to ride this month after riding the last gen in november i didnt like this one nearly as much. the lights and seating position bothered me. my legs didnt fit around the tank nearly as well. last years fit me perfectly and i loved it.

For Goodness Sake! Criticise the headlights, fair enough (buy one at certain UK dealers and they'll fit round headlights at no extra cost, if it bothers you that much), but anyone who rides the new Speedie and says it is in any way inferior to the older models doesn't know what the @#!%£ they're on about. The new Speedie goes better, stops better and handles better. What else is there?!

Agreed, I'm not crazy about the new headlights...I think triumph took too much away from the "rugged but classy" st look. I guess it would still look okay after replacing those lights.

The new lights look good together with the flyscreen.

All I know is that this bike would get me in a world of trouble with the law.
I kinda like the new lights, but miss the old ones.

Some people will always cut down the new bike on the block simply because they can't cough up the bread to buy the new Huckleberry!

It's a cool bike I guess, if you ride in outer space.
