It's great to see Triumph doing so well. I'd love to have one but I'm still waiting for them to make the bike I need - a 675 Tiger with long service intervals, hard luggage, long range tank and shaft drive. So as much as I'm pleased for them, I'm also disappointed that there is still no news about a Tiger Cub.

I've got an 07 Daytona and I love it but unless Triumph make a liter class sports bike, I'll have to look elsewhere for my next bike.

Good News Then

The big T need to be sensible now the economy has changed so much!

Make a good chunk of the bike oversea's has meant they can spend so much more tinkering with an already sound machine and make it louder ;-)

If i dont go Triumph 675 T3 challenge racing on one of these, it is almost certain to be my next road bike :-D

Tiger Cub/Daytona

A message for Thoppa, I read somewhere that the Tiger Cub ain't gunna happen. I to was waiting for the launch of the same bike. I would love one of the new Dayton's but I am to long in the tooth for that to happen I have the Tiger1050 but it has had no end of trouble along the way to reach 29,000ks the latest is a motor rebuild with only a few weeks away from my warranty lapsing. (whew) The engine made a knocking sound when cold but got quieter as it warmed up. Cut a long story short it had badly scored Pistons and liners. The rebuild started 3 months ago and no sign of it yet after complications. I think I will be changing brands, when I finally get the bike back. Merry Christmas everyone!!

Tiger Cub

Must confess I am a little disappointed that this one is not going ahead, think it would make a great bike, but with all the financial uncertainty around, not entirel suprising.

Really love it. A lot.

I went to trade in my Street Triple for a Sprint ST and test rode the 675.  My wife wasn't too pleased when I rolled up on the wrong bike.

This bike had me within 2 minutes of riding it.  The Street Triple is a fine machine (and I think is faster off the line to 30 mph) but this new Daytona is superb.  I commute and the highlight of my day is getting to and from work, through hairy London traffic; the 675 eats it up.

Can't wait for a track day. 

But would love to see Triumph do a litre triple superbike ...
