Hinkley is feeling the heat from both Yamaha and MV Agusta. 800 is a logical progression, but I can't help but think how that is going to cannibalized Speed Triple sales. I just hope they don't f'up the fueling. Triumph seems to be much better at it than the Japanese brands.

Yeah, it really doesn't seem like it's gonna bring new people over to Triumph... It's just that some Speed Triple buyers will now step down to a Street...

I think it will pull more from 675 Street Triple instead of 1050 Speed Triple sales, but it will depend on price point.

I doubt they will keep the 675, along side 800.

did a ride to fayettville with a couple buddies. two of them were on fz09's and they were chasing me pretty hard. both had stock suspension, they kept up fairly good. they were light though one was like 130 other was probably 155. they both were dragging knee through the turns. so i think that suspension deal is more towards heavier people maybe, for sure they would notice it more than lighter people. im a fairly light person.

yeah im looking for something more comfortable than the R6 for street. people complained about the grom suspension too, i never noticed anything. btw im sure the speed triple is a better bike but i really dont think its worth the extra coin since im a lightweight. ive test rode the fz09 fz07 at mancuso btw too.

Not speed, street.

If they were dragging knee, they were being idiots. There is a whole internet that claims the suspension isn't worthy of that behavior. There is pages and pages of discussion how to cheaply fix the problem, which includes taking stock suspension off other yamahas to fix the problem. My claims aren't biased, it's a real problem with the bike and your friends are dead men walking if they think that bike will perform like that stock. All they need is a decent dip in a corner and it's by by friend.
