Bugger I. Got all exited then , O well I suppose it's better than nothing and the soundtrack should improve the race weekend ,


it'll be interesting to see what pace they run compared to the 600's , with better power/ torque and better lean angles they should in theory be losing half a second a lap or so ( maybe more) , shame we have to wait two full years to see it

You can only hope it gives Triumph a taste for racing and gets them to consider a SuperBikes or to enter MotoGP ,but I doubt it now the sports bike market is dwindling.

Nice :)

I can see them eventually combining Superbikes and Supersports or any proddy-based stuff into this sort of high-middleweight 750-900cc class (until Ducati insist...)

As Steve says it'll be an orgasmic soundtrack =D>
