    Saw the below article and thought I might share it with you......

    RUMOURS ARE flying among European journalists this morning that Triumph has given the green light to an all-new 1100cc Superbike that will contest the World Superbike Championship.
    It's the normal sort of rumour you might expect, especially considering Triumph's involvement with the Supersport 600 series, but what got us really excited was that it's rumoured the 1100 will be an over-sized 175bhp motor (to 1098cc) squeezed into a 675 chassis. Apparently, it'll only take tweaks to the current bike to accommodate the extra power.

    OK, this might not actually get anywhere near competing in the planet's best race series, but it's a nice thought to kick off the week.

    There's always been a bit of false hope like this floating around the net... It would be fantastic; the look of a 675 and the power of a rocket... To be fair; riding anything 1000cc+ sports bike on the roads these days is pointless - just gives a fantastic excuse to blast around a track ;) Time will tell for sure! :D
