    I like this a LOT!! But then my last three touring bikes have been orange. Never thought I'd become an orange bike fan but then again, "never say never". This 1200 RS looks terrific in this color to my eye. :heart_eyes:

    If only Triumph would be more adventurous with their paint like they used to be. That looks awesome.

    Nice colour, but not sure it really works with the Öhlins kit in my opinion. It doesn't really contrast or match with the gold and yellow very well.

    Gold/yellow works really well with teal, though, and I would love to see one in a colour similar to this:

    It would be nice if Triumph would up their game regarding colour choice. Black, white or red for the Tiger 900? Come on! :cool:

    Has me thinking that they should knock a few hundred £ off the price of the bikes and supply them to the dealer in primer with the parts not fitted and then the dealer could ask the customer 'pick a colour and we'll get it painted'. Triumph would save money on their processes and a customer gets a colour of choice for the same price. I bet they'd win new customers doing this.

    Not my type of bike, but I think the colour is lovely and sets the bike off :):)

    Well, strangely enough Laverda might have done the odd orange bike!! Must admit it’s a colour that enhances the feeling of freedom and lust.

    I thought the black forks of the 1050 RS looked class, shame they didn't continue.

    Still not seen one in the flesh. I thought the dealers I know would be chasing me to test ride one, but no contact at all. Reading the reviews it doesn’t sound like the bike I want anyway. I just love my 2019 RS even though it’s not been ridden too much this year yet…

    I love it, and actually think it looks okay with the Ohlins. I do think that Triumph could come up with some more exciting colour options, though.
