You can tune anything to produce more power.
So you spend x amount on a Tbird to get more power, then you spend the same on a R3 guess what you get more power.
The Tbird was/is a derivative of the R3 two cylinders instead of 3.
Put the cranks side by side, guess what? Very similar but the Tbird's is shorter.
For the difference in cost and weight I don't get the point of the Tbird, its a nice bike but why settle for less?

I saw the Triumph brochure and the $200.00 price difference between the roadster and the storm and scratched my head. The roadster's the obvious choice on paper, but after a test ride I bought the storm. I can spend more money to get more power but, I can't spend more to make the roadster smaller or handle as well.
Why are you even riding a R3 then when the 500+ HP boss hoss is available? Is there no point to the R3 since the BH is more powerful? How about the Diavel? The Vmax? If only the top dog powerwise is valid, the Tbird AND the R3 wouldn't exist.
First off boss hoss is not even able to hit the twisties....it is stricly a pig.
