Poll: What's the greatest Triumph ever made?

It's Triumphs 110th anniversary this week. Arguably, the Triumph range of motorcycles has been one of the most influential and important in the history of motorcycling, but which model is the greatest ever? pollcomment

Hmmm

The original Triumph company went bust many years ago because of lacklustre and slightly unreliable bikes. Nowadays most people will only know about the new company under John Bloors control. I would suggest that more of these newer bikes that have returned Triumph back to be a main contender should be included in the list.

Triumph

Daytona 675 cause i got one haha. Some of the modern bikes should be in this list seen as the newer range have brought Triumph from a relatively small company into a global brand selling thousands of bikes a year.

Modern bikes?

I may get some abuse for saying this but what about the Street Triple? Pretty much 5 solid years in MCN's top 5 rated by the users and virtually created a class of it's own! I can appreciate the beauty and importance of the classics and the effect they've had on the industry as a whole, however. I'm not saying it should win, my vote fell elsewhere anyway, but I reckon the street should have been given a shot.

TR7 V8. Tony Pond took one to rally success. Although The TR6 was a preferred sports car of the real Triumph heritage, I always liked the TR4A.

Anyway, in bike terms the Bonnie ( whether new or old) it's a classic. The Speed Triple 1050 must surely go down as one of the best in terms of cult status? The Daytona 675 did reset the rule books though for middleweight sports bikes. Nope, it's the Bonnie - surely?

Context

The 95 ST is probably (arguably) the best bike out of the bunch, today. But did it move motorcycling on, at the time of it's release, the same way as some of the Bonnies or the X75 did in their time?
My point, who would've ever bought a modern Triumph over an Italian or Japanese badge, without the pedigree of the Bonnie before it?
