    I'm not keen. Looks a bit XJR1200ish to me. Some nice features on the bike mind. :)

    I like it, but I feel they should have really went all out to make it a modern looking "Retro" ie usd forks & better brakes & suspension.. the flat seat and gaiters look fine on some of the Bonnies but not on this one:( I feel they have missed a trick, they will probably sell loads of them though;)

    Its growing on me a bit , £10,500 on flea bay and although not everyone cup of tea I still believe it would look nicer with spoked wheels

    I managed to sit on one yesterday, must say does look and feel very nice. Only thing that looks out of place to me are the black bits on the exhausts, like the Street Cup, just look a tad cheap to me. Easily fixed with some brushed V&H pipes, as per picture above. Seems like good value to me at £10,800, I’m only £10,700 short of buying one

    Looks like they got it right with the power and handling. It looks more modern than classic but I think I like it. Must test ride one but could be my next motorcycle possibly.

    I think I said before, but if they release an R version with a bigger tank and cruise control, I'd definitely be interested :cool:

    I like it too! the only thing that I would have to address right now, is that rear end. Nothing a quick snip and cut wouldn't fix.

    It's a real shame because i really like it BUT i am not buying any new triumph because of the cost of servicing.

    Had a sit on one tonight, nice, comfy! I'd wait for an R version, its a prime candidate for an R badge. The metal effect mudguards are metal! Nice one Triumph. Saw the new scrambler 1200 too but didnt look twice at it, dont like the 21 inch front.
    I would not swap the thruxton for any of them... I still think its the cream of the crop ;)

    Is it physically bigger than the thruxton Andy? I love the look of the thruxton but for me it would have to be quite a bit bigger..OR if I were to loose about 4 stone then it might feel bigger!!

    No but it gives an impression of being bigger, the tank is a fair bit wider. Bars obviously higher, quite tall bar risers on it. Pegs are a little further forward too I think. It feels roomier than the thruxton
