Other than the radiator, is there something else that bugs you?I don't like 'em. They just don't look right to me. They're as close to modern classics as the Daytona 675.
The radiator really doesn't bug me so much. I think Triumph did a good job making it as unobtrusive as they did. It's the whole package that I don't like, the more I look at 'em, the more I just don't like the look of 'em. The "modern classics" have a certain "je ne sais quoi" that just isn't there on these new bikes. Yes, the Thruxton R spec has nice updated farkles but the same, or similar, springy bits and stoppers can be added to the older Thruxtons. I look at my '05 Thruxton and it looks bloody beautiful, and there's nothing else like it from any other manufacturer, including Triumph.Other than the radiator, is there something else that bugs you?
For me, the USD forks on the thruxton r make it seem too modern, but I'm okay with most of the rest of the offerings as far as style points go...and, yeah, the radiator annoys me - even more than the oil cooler did.
