So after they finally revealed the RR it looks like a cheap knock off to the superveloce, throw a lower fairing on and boom. You would think they would design the dual headlights into it but this just seems to fall flat. Performance wise, no idea...i bet its a mean machine... Thoughts?

I usually reserve judgment until I see things in person, but initial impression is they could've mounted the front fairing lower, and may be trimmed it a bit more to be sleeker.

I think Triumph did a good job with this bike. I don't see it as an MV knock off or as a cheaply styled or built bike in general.
There are a few reviews on YouTube making the rounds.

Naked bike, but with 1/2 fairing... I'm confused.

I think thats part of why i think it didnt hit the mark. If you're gonna make a sport bike out of a previously naked style bike, then do it. Also the style of the dual headlights IS the style of the speed/street triple so to lose it all together i think its not even a striple anymore.

The only thing they have in common is a round headlamp. The body work in minimal on the Triumph, the mirrors are different, the windscreen is different.
From the side it's completely different. The Thruxton RS has a round headlamp as well.

I personally like the look of the minimal body work, this is not a new Daytona, that's probably next.

The Triumph has much higher spec suspension and brakes.

The price in the US is $21K, the red paint is extra.

certainly not a "cheap" knockoff at over 20 grand. I personally love it and Triumph's fit and finish are unreal. I am expecting great things from this bike for sure.

No doubt its a fantastic bike, quality and performance. The only reason i dont have an 08 speed triple is because the brute just put a smile on my face when i took it out. I still want the triple though... To me they took the design away from what it was and now is melding into other sport bikes, not standing out like the weird bug eyed beaut' that it was
