I know, i know....but this thing has an app!

Honestly...since it has an app, you should be able to avoid paying a monthly fee for half of the features.

Why not have it bluetooth sync all of that stuff to your phone and just use your phone's data connection? Obvioulsy won't work for the security features, but it would be nice if they made it an option to not keep paying.

Should also add attachments for a dashcam module...some sort of deal where it records continuously when the bike is on (just overwriting the oldest footage when it gets full).

Hmmm, I'm starting to see room for competition in this space...

When's it coming?

Btw - I'm not sure if you're still considering getting the Bullitt helmet but one thing you might want to consider is the lack of ventilation. That visor's gonna fog up really quickly and you'll always been cracking it to wipe it.

I thought there was ventilation holes? You have the Gringo right, does it fog up also?

And bike should be here by start of June

It does have ventilation holes but from what i hear the ventilation's minimal and it fogs up a lot.

My Gringo is shit for ventilation but I only wear it for very short distances when riding my scooter and hardly ever with the shield on.

I was on the highway this past weekend with my Arai and it would've been terrible had I been wearing the Gringo.

A dude I know got a Cyclewerks bike as well. He likes it a lot and it looks nice.

Ah, man that's quite disappointing. How do you know the Bullit has the same problems?

And I posted awhile ago that I decided against the cyclewerks, getting a tu20x!

Read it on a more recent review...I'll see if I can dig it up.

Can someone tell me what the main difference between the Speed Triple and Street Triple are?

Thinking about getting one of these bikes if I don't go with the Daytona 675.

375ccs, ~25whp, and I want to say about 50lbs

Both great bikes... I would probably go with the Speed Triple over the Street as I'd rather have the grunt over the nimbleness. That's more relevant to the kind of riding I do

Unless you plan on doing a ton of track days I'd probably pass on the Daytona.... Street Triple gives you everything it has but optimized for the street

The street has a firmer ride than the softly sprung Speed but the Speed ha
