That thing does look sweet. I need to keep checking the Janesville Triumph webpage for when they are doing their spring open house. They have demo rides on all the bikes, but you need to get their early to get a chance on a sportbike.

I'm afraid of what might happen if I ride a speed triple though. The last gen one was a freakin' hoot, I can't imagine this new one. Think a riding position from a naked SV or XB9S, but 120 hp.

MCC in villa park carries Triumph, and that is where Farmboy got his.

So you are looking at this bike putting 100 hp at the wheel?

i really dig the speed triples too. Never sat one one. The tail is too stubby for my taste, but I think I could overlook that

Yep, but I rode the previous version 995 cc (or was it 950?) anyways, by about second gear just pulling out of the Janesville parking lot, I was thinking "DAMN, I should have bought THIS bike."

For me, way up in BFE, Triumph dealers are nill. Nielsen's used to carry them, but they had a falling out with Triumph. They only wanted to sell Bonnie's and the like, not sportbikes or tourers. Triumph didn't like that idea, so Nielsen's quit selling them. It's either down to MCC, up to Janesville or Racine. The guy in Racine (actually SUPER northern Kenosha) is where I bought the Speed Four from. Nice guy, but it's only a 3 person shop, so service is slow and unpredictable. The Janesville one is the only stand alone Triumph dealership in the Midwest. If I was getting major work done on a Triumph, I'd go there first.

the 955 mill is similar throughout the line, misc. differences in tune.

I was at MCC when Farmboys 675 arrived along with two others.

What is really impressive is just how SMALL this thing really is.

Super-Compact ..... smaller than a 749 size-wise.

Think .... 250 GP bike


COOL !

this is what EVERYBODY is saying about it.

I'm interested to see how the non factory supported D675 does in British Superbike. BSB declared the bike eligible for their supersport (middleweight) class. AMA still won't allow it (or the Duc 749 for that matter). Triumph still has no official factory team, but there is a good privateer effort with some dude that's actually fast. I'll search for details after work on RRW.

Hey everyone. I'm still planning on dropping by Strat's tonight if anyone wants to check the bike out. A few quick bits on the bike:
Wet weight looks to be 422 lbs. full of gas. Rearwheel HP has been actually measured from 106 to 109 in stock configuration, depending on the dyno. With the Arrow Ti system (sitting in my basement) and remap, it should approach 115 RWHP. I've ridden the bigger triples, and this one revs a LOT quicker; I haven't had it over 6K revs yet, but it should be a blast. The bike is TALL, and it kinda feels like you're on it rather than in it. Seems very flickable, the brakes seem pretty good, suspension; same. It was so freaking cold last weekend, I only managed 100 miles. More later, i have to get back to work. see ya.
