There are aftermarket solutions that are far cheaper than triumph.

True. I'm looking very intently at the Dart Flyscreen, but am pretty sure that I'll be getting the OEM pan.

The other bike I was considering is the new BMW F800GT (yeah, yeah, I know - it's could only be more different than the Striple if it some Harley chopper chopper chrome potato chrome chrome potato potato chopper thing). It's supposed to be a "Grand Turismo," but it doesn't even come with the panniers, or the mounts for them, standard.

It's the old "foot in the door" sales technique. They try to hook you with a lower price, then just keep chipping away at you with the "extras." In today's world, it's pretty easy since most people are getting a loan. "Sir, that flyscreen may be ridiculously expensive, but it's only pennies per month onto your monthly payment."

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?

Mirror swaps on naked bikes are generally very easy. Almost all of them use the same size & type of thread. For example, I ran KTM Duke mirrors on my SV and they were a straight swap.

That Brutale looks small in that picture. I know they really are but I'm used to seeing lanky Italians sitting on them LOL.

If I order one, I'll have to cut 30 pounds. It's a sin for a dude that fat to desecrate such a sexay bike!

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.

I read basically the same stuff you must have. I like the low exhaust. When I was configuring prior year models, the first item I would check was the Arrow 3-1 exhaust. I never bought into the tail exhaust styling exercise and am glad Triumph is going away from it, but I would have preferred them to not make it look like ductwork from my house.
