New Triumph-powered sportster on the way

Is this the machine Brit bike fans have been waiting for? It’s a Triumph 1050 triple-engined sportster equipped with the best in British chassis components and know-how and is on schedule to go into production next year. And although this is only a styling sketch, a working prototype is well under way. It’s been put together by an all-new outfit called Enigma which...

Show case in red

I like the bike and it looks like a good combination but even as a concept drawing showing it off in red does give it a Ducati inspired appearance or at least Italian look. I hope it does real well it will need to be priced well. If it is expensive then people will ask why not buy a Ducati, MV. As for looks that is down to individual tastes.

Ducati look alike

This does not look like a Triumph, it looks like a Ducati. Why would you want your Triumph to look like a Ducati?.

Final touches?

Putting a whole fairing set would ruining the concept of the bike they're trying to make, at least in my opinion./ But if they put an underseat exhaust, rad cowl and maybe an optional belly pan I think i'd be in love. Still a great looker though, just needs something else....?

yes please

i would buy it. but the lights need looking at.  put 3 round lights in a slight v patten rear hand grips and a bit more pad for 2 up. i like the red but white, british raceing green and deep black gloss would help.

No likey.  Looks like bits of Ducati crudely overlaid on a Triumph, but with the Ducati bits somehow skewed to the right and up a bit like the artist slipped.  Given the lovely starting materials, and the companies involved, I'd expect more than this derivative guff.  Not that I'd be able to afford it :(
