My dream has been answered. What does everyone think? Is Triumph restricting the the 900?

My wife came in and asked me what I was watching -- brief explanation yielded "don't do that" from her. UGH. Probably gonna anyway.

I may have misunderstood, but did he say that it *will* work with the stock tune (ie, non V&H) ? I didn't follow....

Very interesting. I was thinking of selling the Twin but this might keep me interested. I am not convinced about the tune not being available. I need to take my bike to the dealer and confirm before going forward. The dealer said they hadn't received any TSB on the tune not being available but had to hook the bike up to be sure.

Way to go George, brilliant development. I did wonder how they achieved the A2 compatibility on a 900cc engine.
I don't think that Triumph have dropped the baby here - the bike/engine is fabulous in stock form, that is abundantly obvious from all the positive reviews, and the low rev HT characteristic suits the "style" of the bike.... BUT ... who would sensibly ignore adding 30HP for the sake of a cam tweak?

It would be great if Triumph offered this to maintain warranty ... and George should be granted a big slice of their revenue, but neither of these is at all likely.

So... I may try to wait till after the 2 year warranty - but then maybe I wont ... 30 HP is 30 HP is 30HP

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space

Very interesting, the man is a true professional, the company are well respected in after market tuning.

One bit I didn't follow, at 17 - 18 mins he says the difference between the 900 engine & Thruxton R 1200 engine is all in the top end?

Doesn't the Thruxton R have a totally different & lightened crank? Maybe he meant to say the T120.

Pretty incredible improvement! Would be very tempted by this for my Street Scram, but part of me would want to wait until it was out of warranty. His comment about needing a brake upgrade too is telling, I already find them pretty anaemic. That said, I'm already paying the higher insurance for riding a 900cc motor, why not use it ha!
