Actually they are adding CC to meet Euro 5 regulation. Others have done it well. So the performance might be pretty same as in current version but new one meets the regulations, current doesn't.Couple years from now, we will be at 1.8L nakeds, LOL. Keep adding CCs, I personaly dont get it, don't care. But I guess you have to impress with HP numbers.
Like it. But to late. Already bought the super duke. Have a street triple for sale. Because of it. Always A place in my heart for TriumphHmmm. It does look nice. My '06 S3 was a great bike. I wonder if it will finally catch up with the rest of the super/hyper naked crowd as far as power and handling is concerned? I'd love to say, "nah, I'll have the S3 instead of a Super Duke R or Tuono V4" when I go shopping soon.
Same here. I've had almost every version of Triumph's triple (T300, Sprint RS, 955i S3, 955i Daytona, 675 ST3, Tiger 1050, 1050 S3) but wasn't getting the same buzz I've had in the past so have also bought a 1290 Super Duke. Wow, if ever a bike demands you pay attention and keeps you on your toes this is it. No matter how I try I cannot ride it relaxed. It gets tiresome but you know you've been on a ride when you get off. It is just so involving. Oh, and it's so complex it keeps you guessing as to when it's going to throw another random electronics error. I now use my S3 for those lazy Sunday afternoon runs - stick it in 6th and bimble along.Always a place in my heart for Triumph
