I like the new bike, I have no plans of buying one, but if for some reason I needed to, then I would not hesitate to buy the latest version.
For me, the overall look is a big factor, but performance is the deal maker. The Street Triple, has since it's beginning, offered both (IMO).
I would like to see Triumph do a "Special Edition" in a "Café Racer" type look. Not so much of a retro look, more like a 21st century rendition of café racer. Only do a limited production, and keep both the standard and R versions.
You can't have mountains without valleys.
2009 Triumph Street Triple R 32,600 miles
2006 Triumph Sprint St. 58,300 miles
