There are aftermarket solutions that are far cheaper than triumph.
Yea you guys have a point I'll wait and see what kind of systems are released aftermarket. I'm waiting on the bellypan for now, but the flyscreen, and a few smaller bits are a done deal.
The mirrors are a little awkward, but I dont want bar-ends. I like the mirrors on the older street triples. That should be an easy swap, no?
I read an article, forgot where, but it was saying that the tail section was redesigned to bring the weight balance of the bike to like 48% rear and 51% nose. The low exhaust was done in an effort to change the balance dynamic which helps settle the bike in cornering and allows for less wheelie on launch.
The first gear is also taller and almost an exact copy of the D675 gear mapping. The taller first gear allows for better fuel mileage and a more street/commuter friendly bike.
My opinion, based on the read, is that Triumph decided that the Street Triple is just that, a naked bike for the commuter, and the R is for the commuter who likes to get spirited on the weekends. Riders looking for a track bike are expected to step up to the Speed Trip or Daytona R. Over all I am a fan of the old exhaust because I liked the thick, compact "Bulldog" bike but with the overall performance changes the new bike is nice.
If there is the option for an aftermarket high exhaust on this thing that would accept panniers then I would be all over it. Ill just stick with my Bonnie for now and continue to dream in the configuration tool during lunch.
