That was a good article. Not just about the T-bird but included comparative info on several models.

Thanks for posting the article. I like most of the bike. It looks better in these pics than the earlier ones. There is no doubt that if I could get ahold of one of these, I would have that funky, added on license plate holder and signals off. I don't know for sure what I would do. But that crap has to come off.

Rich...I totally agree. I think a side mount plate would look good on that bike and mount the rear sigs on the fender brackets, I guess. That's the one I haven't really figured out yet either.

The weird thing for me is, they do a ton of tweaking and refining on everything on the bike, and then, they patch this license thing on, seemingly as an after thought. Maybe there is some kind of styling here that I'm not familiar with.

I'm liking the black "Baseline" bike.
The chromed rear fender supports look leaner
The tank badge is more old skool
The headlight is less bulbous
The battery cover looks smoother
More chrome on the induction and engine
The forks have chrome sliders not satin ala "Blue Bike"
...and if I'm not mistaken the bike looks lower in the rear. Even the tank looks different.

I think I'm more confused about what Triumph are bringing out now than before I read the article.

But for the radiator, it looks nice enough. I wonder if it will be available with proper wire wheels?

I'm in high hopes that my weekend trip to Daytona will finally shed some light on the subject firsthand. Pictures (if they're good enough) will be posted Monday.

It doesn't grab me the way my TBA did but clearly that's just me. I certainly found one quote striking:
"Triumph ... sold just under 45,000 units worldwide to Honda's 13,476,000"

That's incredible.

Keets, I am with you on this one. I thought the exact same thing.....so much so, that I printed a pic of the "baseline" ride. Now that one, I could get into!! I hope it looks like that instead of that big fatty Guzzi looking fuel tank with the tiny I wish I was a badge.
