    But it's an English machine, of course, it's going to be low-tech- or purist if you will.

    The auto company (no connection since the '30s) also used to make cars that became more and more ineffectual until it finally closed.

    LabelKing, I would have to disagree. Triumph introduces some good "high-tech" models recently, like the Daytona 675 or SpeedTriple.

    Exactly - they have basically reissued their old bike with almost no technological upgrades rather than using all the new tech they have on their other bikes. It's unfortunate, because as I said, I like the styling for the most part.

    Too bad these bikes are still so low-tech. I love the styling, hate the single front brake and inefficient engine...


    This very bike was on display at Sogo department store in Yokohama last year.

    I'd like it more if the Triumph company is so regressive, they lose money.
