I like the idea of triumph taking the helm as it will probably push triumph to update the aging Daytona to help tie in with the division.
Rumour is that the Daytona is going bye-bye. It's not selling well enough. So they'll be just releasing an expanded Street Triple (including a "faired" version) line-up. We shall see...

So if the stocker (765) can produce 121BHP, no doubt the Moto2 engine will make 130...

Seems there is no such thing as too many cubes. The MV F3 is 381lbs dry; Brembo monoblocs;EAS, slipper clutch with 146bhp in stock form.

Perhaps the most telling thing is MV Agusta is releasing the current F3 675 @€13,999 - Suzuki's GSX-R750 is MSRP @ €13,499 - Ducati's middle weight superbike, the 848 fetches €14,790. MV Agusta says they are not releasing the price yet for the F3 800, but to expect it to be inline with the F3 675 and its competition.

Would you spend €500 more than a Gixxer with vastly better equipment? Or, for less than €210 more than the Ducati would you be enchanted by the "Other Italian" bike with very comparable, if not the exact same equipment as the Ducati? I know I would.

You are seeing the new face of the middle weight sportbikes, and the racing category displacement of the near future. Japan Inc. with have to come up with something bigger than even our beloved 636. It will have to nudge 750cc once again.
After hearing issues with the MVs and the big financial fixes/maintenance cost i don't care what big name products it's got I'd be spending more time trying to fix it than riding it which is a no no for me. My friend owns a 2010 Ducati 1098 steer fighter s and I can no way on the cost of parts fuck that! Cool great bike but no. Plus Ducati doesn't even make the 848 anymore and they haven't for a couple years. Shit all their sport bikes are now 959cc-up engines.

Sure, the bikes have great features but I just can't be bothered with shit that breaks. Never had an issue with Triumph.

Yeah they need to start making some smaller displacement sport bikes (not the scrambler).

They announced that they are interested in entering Moto 3, which likely means they will be producing something to compete with the Ninja 300, R3, CBR500 and RC390...but that's only IF they achieve their goals in MotoGP. They will not start that program unless they do well in GP. So, as much as I hate Lorenzo, I hope he does well just for that

Cuz I want a small lightweight Ducati! That'd be badass. Right now I just don't get their reasoning for the odd sizes they've made like the 899 and 959. Cool bikes, but they just don't seem to really fit in anywhere . If I was to buy another one, I might as well go big and go for the 1299.

The Triumphs really don't give me much of a boner. Never been a fan of the 3-cyl motor and I never understood the fuss about the Daytona. I see a lot of the STT guys switching from R6's or ZX6R's to the Daytonas, but I'm just not seeing it. Less common, harder to get parts for, more expensive, and doesn't perform any better. They haven't done much in MotoAmerica, or in WSS (with the few appearances they even had). And their naked bikes like the Street Triple and Speed Triple are alright, but I just don't care for the looks, or the sound. If I was in the market for a naked street bike, I'd go for a Monster hands down.

Yep, I think that's a fantastic upgrade. Love my ZX6R's suspension. Mind you I had the base model Street Triple which is non-adjustable. The RS is going to kick some serious ass and I can use it on the track if I want...

Just optioned it up with this

Ever ridden one? I understand the lack of support piece of the equation. But try one out. One of the best balanced bikes out there. Having said that, I think the ZX6R in its current form is good competition (with a few upgrades).

Edit: Daytona going byebyes anyway if the rumours are to be believed. And the rumours to date on the new Street Triple are all correct so I reckon they will axe it and bring out a faired-touring version of the Street Triple (RT) later...

No I haven't. I have no doubt that they're good. Everyone I've talked to who bought one after owning a different 600 loves them, but I just don't think it's special enough to make me want to spend more money and increased cost of ownership for something that's equivalent. Like if I was buying a liter bike, I'd totally spend more to get a Ducati 1299 or Aprilia RSV4, but that's cuz I really like the Ducati twins, and also the V4. I really like the way those bikes look, sound, and some of the features they have. I understand they're probably no better than a zx10r and they cost more, but I think they're special enough for me to spend that extra money. The Daytona just doesn't strike that chord with me, but to each their own.
