Fred, You posted this in the C14 section? I'm moving it because other than your title. It has nothing to do with the C14. It really belongs in the other bikes section, the way you started this thread!



I like the look of it. But if I didn't know it was a Triumph. I would swear it was a BMW!

I can not see any other market that they would be going after with that look.

It kind of appear to since no chain is visible below the swingarm in the side leaning pic.  Hard to say for sure though.

I guess I missed that, but after reading it the other day that was my assumption for whatever reason (probably because I must have read it). LOL

Thanks for the clarification.
