The bags...

I would like to see what the mounts look like and if they come off the bike like those trick "bags connection" units from SW Motech / Twisted Throttle. Those things are the shizzy. Hope they update the brackets for the new 13' as I'm sure they are half the cost of the Triumph units. I like the look of the side bags and rear trunk / seat bag from Triumph though. The mounting brackets and ease of removal will be key. Kept my original Triumph tank bag and seat bag. I know the tank bag willl work. Will have to see if I can mod the seat bag to fit the 13'.

I don't understand why the lower exhaust section needs to be so boxy. A plain pipe like on the werkes gp would look better than that?

I have to agree with many comments here, looks kinda Japanese designed now. That said, I think they will still sell a ton!

I was disappointed, Triumph has the best engineers and this is the best they can do for the 2013s? I was already thinking of brand new bike!!
I'm also glad I got the 2012, lets see what the 14s look like.
I do need some new mirrors that are flush with the bars, I can't split some cars and end up stopped or just inching by.

I'm with you on the 2013s ... I think they could of done better . I wish they kept the high exhaust . Sadly I think the 14s will be about the same . I too love my 2012 R . Pretty much all they did was change the subframe , wheels , exhaust and clocks then added a few lil things and some options . I was hoping the new Striple would of been more Daytona sans fairing . And a high exhaust.

This is just based on parking lot rumor but I have heard that low exhausts are better for the bike. Something about a reduction in weight because of less cans and exhaust piping. The only example I could give is a Yamaha R1 loosing its high pipes when it becomes the MotoGP version. Unfortunately, I don't know if that is a change based on performance or rules.
I will agree though, I have always been a fan of high exhaust, when there is proper heat shielding under the seat.

So tell us, what were you hoping for in a re-design??

Yes, much less weight up high. Now lower, centralized and about 8 lbs lighter than stock (one instead of 2). Makes the bike much more nimble i.e. "flickable". The GP exhausts weight nothing (Ti) and so the higher placement isn't as critical as on street kit.

Yeah, and if you have dual underseat Arrows (titanium) instead of fugly stock exhaust on the current model, then what's the point of embracing the new model with it's "mass centralized" exhaust, also ugly as hell? This pipe redesign business was probably driven by emissions regulations in the first place.

I wouldn't say much more nimble. I've rode the Striple with the OEM, Arrow twins and Arrow Low, there was not a significant difference between the the two Arrow options. The OEM cans were double the weight of the Arrow twins, and the Low mount a little less than the Arrow twins. For 99% of the riders out there, the exhaust volume (at the head position) will be the greatest difference when using the low mount option (Arrow). Some pipes, like the Competion Werks low mount is very loud (without baffle).

One problem with the low mount pipe, it's a pretty pricey item to fix or replace if you ding it up in a low-slide, as it'll be the first item to get messed up if you go down on the right side.
