The Bonneville line needs to go on a diet! If adding 10HP adds 50lbs then it's the wrong direction. I'm not big fan of most flat-track concepts and the one shown above misses the mark by a bit on a few styling elements, especially considering it doesn't appear to shave much weight, but it can be done:

Euro 5 is proposed to come into effect in 2020 with the precise date and the specific requirements to be confirmed by 2016.

So the Bonny as we know it has a few years of life left in it even if they can't make it conform to Euro 5 in its current form.

Now this one looks sharp! Love the drum brakes! If they could do drum brakes with decent braking power, I love the retro look & simplicity of drums, no messing with fluid, etc. Please don't flame me for this I know discs have better power. Love everything else about it, too. Chances of Triumph offering a model with drum brakes? Probably about 0.01%. lol

So its the 29th, has anyone gotten a copy of the article yet? Is there a way to view it online, or do we have to rely on the UK folks picking up a copy from the newsstand?

Love the brakes, wheels, and suspension, but the engine looks like it came off of an Ingersoll Rand compressor...I'll pass, thanks.

Triumph better pull there finger out! the new MV Augusta 800 Brutale is set to spank the Speed Triples arse!

Triumph need to make an 800 Street Triple R, using the Tiger 800 motor, better still, if Triumph use the new 2013 Daytona motor,with 76mm bore and the Tiger 800 stroke of 61.9mm, this would make a displacement of 842.7cc!!!

That's what Triumph needs to make and sell!

An 850 Street Triple R !!!!!

and if they need to persist with a big bore naked, then they should make an 1300 Speed Triple!!

No more poofing around Triumph,you are getting left behind by your competitors!!!

I totally agree! I like the look and sounds of the new addition. It sounds like just what the Bonne line needs to keep chugging along. Although, I won't be purchasing one.
