2013 STR pics from 'Build My Triumph' configurator

If you're like me you've been logging into Triumph's website periodically to see if they've uploaded the 2013 streety into the 'Build My Triumph' tool. As of today, they haven't yet, but i think they are close. Today in my google alerts i got a link from wonder-vision.com (apparently the software company that designs the build my triumph feature) with images of the new street triple all decked out in accessories. Check out the pics!
The panniers and bags look nice, as well as all the other goodies.
I gotta say, that carribean blue looks pretty good too.

Nice, I like it how you can now get engine protectors and frame protectors and the arrow slip on is a more reasonable price than the slip ons for the current model.

The rear hugger should be standard

The rear hugger is standard on the "R".

The only thing I like are the rear panniers and wheels. The exhaust should be cheaper - it's nasty. Lights are nasty. Tank bag is nasty. The rear sub-frame is nasty. Did Triumph hire the General Motors losers that styled the Aztec?

Even the arrow pipe is gross...... The blue is nice though. Still glad I have a '12.

...and it is utterly rubbish! Looks crap, but worst still, it doesn't do its job, not remotely.

So try not to get too excited about it. Look for an after-market alternative.

I believe they call them "rear fenders" or "rear mudguards", and they used to come standard on most bikes. But huggers look much cooler. Pay no attention to the stripe of road crud running up your back.

I've had 3 people at work that are not riders, but read the bike magazines I leave in the bathroom stall, make similar comments about Triumph screwing up the Street Triple. This new model now looks too much like all the other Street Triple "wannabes" being offered by the other manufacturers, it's lost a lot of it's styling individualism. Makes me so glad I have an original.

The 2013 Triumph Street Triple configurator is up and running. Strange that they don't show the anodized aluminum brake reservoir. I'd like the heated grips, I'm such a wimp!
