I talked to the Triumph rep last friday when I went to dry hump the 675. I was asking about factory track skins etc. and he claimed that the 675 wasn't designed as a race bike, they wanted to build the best street bike on the market. This confused me a bnit as the 675 has a built in track computer that will record lap times, best speed etc.

I'll haven't read the article yet, but I will. I wonder how much of it was the rider and not the bike.

So Ricky won't be pissed that Yamaha lied about the 17K redline?

Oh wait, probably not since it still *looks* like it revs to 17...

Personally, I don't care if the squids overlook the new Daytona and run straight to the Japanese flavor of the month. But I imagine Triumph would like a slice of the market share. Regardless, they are moving in the right direction.

The issue of MCN that contains that article just hit the news stands today (here in Europe), so maybe by tomorrow someone will have scanned the article and posted it.
