TB Sport vs new Speed twin......why would you?
Looking at the new modern heritage line, it seems that triumph is coming full circle in making an 80+ hp standard with comfy bars and good brakes, just like 20 years ago when the TB Sport came out. But ironically, they're using twin shock suspension, with minimal adjustablity.
Yet a 20 year old TBS has the same 80+ HP, similar ergo's, DUAL disk front brakes, and what some would say is a superior suspension......and that's stock.
It just irk's me that Triumph wouldn't make a Standard TRIPLE. A 1050 triple in a standard frame would be the bees knees in my world. For now, I'll keep finding reasons to not sell my TB sport.
