The rear end is kind of R1'ish

Much better looking than the older model (IMHO)

Any upgrades to the Motor, Suspension and FI?

Regardless of how the bike is received, the thing that irks me a bit is the implied admission on the part of Triumph of "Well, we screwed up the first time, so we'll try again". It's too soon for a "revolutionary" incarnation of the bike; it's taken enough heat from the media as it is. If anyone is in the market for a good deal on a used bike, take a look at the '00-'02 TT's after this particular version hits the market.

I saw these photos on MCN when they came out. My first impression is that it resembles the Aprilia Futura. It will be interesting to see how the new bike is received.

If I can say three things to Triumph: Horsepower, horsepower and horsepower.

Win the motorcycle magazine speed tests and you'll sell more bikes than you can imagine.

I would be very surprised to see Triumph put out a bike with those lines. They are more into smooth curves. Leave that sharp shit to Aprilia.

The current TT just needs a little redesign work not a complete change in focus like the Futura esque crap shown there.
