Hey guys im new to forum already posted an intro, just wanted to get thoughts on the new 2013. My opinion is it looks good but ill stick to the previous models.. The actual unveiling will be Nov. 13 2012 EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

I actually quiet like it....but call me a idiot but does this bike stay with the under the seat exhaust as thats a real neat part of the bike IMO would hate to see the new bike change it for a side exhaust looks to common and naff....would be a disaster IMO if triumph has gone for that design
I get the feeling they have just "dressed up" the old model without any real steps forward. Maybe thats a good thing as the existing one is so good but, i worry that Triumph are going to get caught out. With Kwak doing drastic things like adding 36cc and traction control to a new bike, it looks like Triumph have only changed a few bits of plastic and stuck a low boy on it (probably 2hp gain from the exhaust). If that is the extent of the changes then i'd worry if i were Triumph.

No way....really....I really liked the exhaust under the seat it's sad times for triumph if they have put it on the side....so common and makes no sense why it sets of the bike having it under the seat!! I dont no what other peoples view are on this....please say would like to no people's opinions on the blade style exhaust

The stand out feature is that lovely rear sub frame, and I think it's brave and commendable that Triumph should put the design of the MD's 8yr old lad into production, it shows faith in the designers of tomorrow.
Oh, and lets not forget the "Little Miss Hollywood" make-up kit for girls that the MD's 7yr old Daughter used to so cleverly modify the headlights, another art student in the making if ever I saw one!
All in all a dream come true!
It's sh*t Triumph. You can f*ck off if you think I'm buying that.
