IF, repeat IF Triumph were to build a limited edition Sport model what would you want to see on it?

I never expect it to happen (especially after Triumph's recent comments about aftermarket support), and we are always free to build our own version, but a few things I would love to see offered include:

A custom color like Charcoal metallic, or black metallic paint.
Blacked out parts all over the bike - no silver anywhere.

Custom header and exhaust (light) with a real matching performance tune - blacked out.

Ohlins suspension
Black front forks and caliper
Improved brake pads
Light brake rotors

A magnesium version of the stock 5-spoke wheels.

45 tooth rear sprocket.

Rear seat cowl with "Special Edition" or "S" logo.
Rear hugger.

I would pay a good bit more for a special edition Speed Triple if it actually came with upgraded parts and not just a couple of decals.


What would you want?

If you're going to dream, dream big.

1 ) Engine with modified head and high performance cams.
2 ) Variable intake length.
3 ) Variable valve timing.
4 ) Magnesium or carbon fiber engine case covers (e.g. clutch cover) for decreased weight.
5 ) Improved suspension and brakes. Duh.
6 ) One button ability to switch between EFI maps: Race/Street/Tour etc.
7 ) One-of color combination, much like the 2004 Speed Triple SE.
8 ) Lightweight wheels, brake rotors, etc.
9 ) Better factory instrument cluster. NO DIGITAL SPEEDO! Kid stuff.

I'd like to see the dry weight under 400 pounds, and I'd like to see horsepower in the 150 range.

1. Ohlins
2. Brembo's
3. Cold Air Induction - if the small radiator and oil cooler were mounted lower this can be done
4. 20 pounds lighter
5. Half gallon bigger tank for longer range
6. reduced rotating mass - wheels and chain
7. dual compound Pilot Powers
8. some kind of fly screen that works at high speed
9. seat cowl
10. belly pan

That all, not much

How about upgraded a lot lighter frame and shave weight from the SSSA.
The lighter frame is a two-sided sword. For those who like to wheelie, the heavier frame is strong. But I wouldn't mind a magnesium SSSA and frame.

How about it Racecomp? If I design it, will you build a carbon fiber frame for me? :drink:

Now THAT would be light!

(I joke. It would be fun to try but as the crashmaster I have no business having any carbon fiber structural elements to my bike!)

How about this;

Carbon Fiber bodywork (painted or unpainted available for R-model)

Carbon or Mag wheels

Brembo brakes

Penske suspension (since they're black and as good as Ohlins)

Perhaps a new 999 or 1200cc Daytona motor based on the 675.

Racing radiator and oil cooler

Comes standard with Arrow full system

Priced at a nice competitive $14,999 to compete with the S4Rs and smoke the competition.

So I guess missed that bit...What did they say about the aftermarket?

As far as wants:

Ohlins
Adjustable rear sets
Brembos
Blacked out components
Less restrictive exhaust (and heads as required)
ECU controlled adjustable intake runner length (similar to Yamaha R1)

I wouldn't want a lot of S emblems, etc....keep the masses guessing as you blow by them

Bob at Chain Reaction called Triumph and asked a few questions about aftermarket support. The official reply was that Triumph did not want its buyers using aftermarket exhausts and would not support the aftermarket.

Screw 'em! :finger:

I say we do it without their help. STOCK SUX!
