I read a post somewhere. The author was saying that the '07 had a couple more HP but that it didn't seem worth it to him because peak torque didn't arrive until much higher RPM. When I looked at the specs for '06 vs '07 they were different.
eak power is an impressive 125bhp @ 9250rpm while peak torque of 77ft.lbf arrives at just 7500rpm.
eak power is an impressive 123 bHP at 9,250 rpm while peak torque of 77 lbs. ft. arrives at just 5,000 rpm.
eak power is an impressive 125PS @ 9,250rpm while peak torque of 104Nm arrives at 5,000rpm.
A couple of these specs were pulled off of the triumph website.
I wondered if the rationale for this was easier starting, fuel mileage, emissions control? Is it reversible? would you want to?etc.
I test rode an'07 - which was awesome- and told me all I really need to know. I will be picking mine up in 5 days :-D :-D Just wondering what the change was for.
