    It's a neat bike, I've like Triumph tripples for while. But no dealer network, and iffy electrics and other issues have kept me away over the years. One reason I was glad Yamaha made a Japanese truimph, in the FZ-09. I also think that the FZ also embodies the spirit of the original Speed triple better than the newer Triumphs, they have lost thier rawness.

    It's absolutely a shame Triumph continues with their insistence upon an absurd headlight assembly. I thought Yamaha lost it's mind with the FZ-10, BMW with their S1kR, and Triumph with their ghastly bug eyes on the old model, but this new one is even more pronounced and repulsive. I bet that thing is sublime to ride though.

    I guess i am on the other side of it. Normally i am not a fan of the twin "buggy" headlights, but on the speed/street triple it is awesome (current model). It is the staple look of the triumph triple since it came into existence, which I think was around 2007.

    I guess if I was British I would say it looks "Proper"

    IMHO the buggy headlights can look good, just depends on the bike "application".

    I definitely am not a fan of the twin headlight on the new FZ09 or the 10, but to each his own.

    FZ-09 pumps our almost 9 ft lbs more torque although that mototr makes a bit more HP up top. I will keep my beautiful Torque

    It will be interesting to see the real world numbers of the new 765 once it's thrown on a dyno.. Printed specs mean nothing...

    If Triumph would just do something like this.

    It would look way better.

    But no, they have to make it look like a bug eyes cat.

    Poor kitty.....
    There are kits out there to relocate the headlights further back because of feelings much like your own. Having owned an 07, I rather liked the headlight placement once I got used to how far out it sat. The headlight and cluster is tied to the frame, not the forks, which I prefer (like the FZ-10). No wind loading on the forks at track speeds, and the headlights don't turn with the bars.

    Wait for it......






    I think it looks great (except for the ripped off FZ-09 exhaust, which is a pile). I'm not a fan of the subframe evolution, but I could live with it. Then again, I also have an FZ-10 in the garage...so take my opinion for what it's worth.
