Must be a hell of an old vid where the hells the snow in it But my major gripe with triumph is that they are crap dureing our winter months they rust like hell you would think that a country like this they would understand how to at least make a bike stand up to winter at leas tas good as teh jap bikes and for that reason would probley take the z1000 and not overly sold on the new front end on the triumph but will see what like they both are in person a tteh edinburgh bike show next year woohoo cant wait lol

DEFO Z1000

Got to go with the Z100, Exhaust pipe aside, the Z1000's styling looks a generation in front of the NEW? triumph. Similar in price.

Triumph or KTM

not sure about comment below - the Z1000 as a modern Japanese bike has no style at all to speak of, it's just a random mixture of different shapes of plastic, though thats not to say its a bad bike. As for build quality, Triumph may not be Honda standard, but certainly no worse than Kawasaki or Suzuki. The Super Duke is prob the most fun i think - having a fantastic, iron fist of an engine with way more instant grunt than the multis can manage

I am chomping at the bit to get a test ride of the new Speed Triple! At the moment it would be more of a test slide though. Bring on the summer

Delete points on the kawasaki for having too much stuff on it, being OTT. Didn't they look at the Trumpy's headlights? Surely the most ugly things ever. I've always liked the speed triple, always thought of having one. Not any more. A styling disaster.

Just goes to show these days bike choice is down to looks as no one really makes a bad bike.  Might be worth looking out for the Ducati Monster 1100 Evo as it should come out at the same price and comes with traction control.

The Speed Triple "marmite" styling is the least talked about subject in the bike press.  Talk about the elephant in the room!
