I think for a naked bike with some clip-on handlebars and a fairing stuck on, they're doing pretty decent!

Lovely bike, that Street Triple 765 RS! Rode it both on the road and at the Catalunya circuit a couple of years ago. Brilliant fun, it's obviously got some very good Daytona genes! I really wish Triumph would make that Daytona 765, which is of course basically what they are now riding in WSS.

I ride a 2020 765RS and don't see the need for a faired version ;) 

I ride a 2014 Daytona 675R and do want the "real" sport bike to continue. This IS a Daytona 765 in everything but name. Bikes have fairings and clip on!

:)

The 765 isn't in a very high state of tune. Close to the same horsepower as the 675 I think? Added electronics gizmos are a negative for me until you hit closer to liter bike territory. Racier top end plz. 

Congrats on the bike Jared! Enjoy!

The SOUND of the MV Agusta is brilliantly mean. Really sexy bike! Looks great of course. Still unsure of the rulebook specs on each engine/bike. Here is a simple video capturing each current WSS bike heading out, and through a corner or two (last test).

Been maintaining keen interest here for a long time. Based on specs only I have had concern the Duc would run away w it. Twins utterly bore me personally (raced them, still have a weird arse Buell 1125R w the Rotax to get rid of, have ridden several Ducs). 

Rider perspective, triples are GREAT. Ideal. I let 4 cyl 600 riders take my 675R for a rip and they ALL love it. Goldilocks between angry spicy top end focused 4's and tractor-boring Twins. So NARROW and compact. Handling is a dream, and the power comes on deliciously tasty perf. 

Absolutely perfect? Triumph 899R Daytona. Zero electronics, just my bike with displacement beefed. The upper front fairing would ditch the fish holding its breath bulge cheeks in favor of something more attractive, the MV Ag fairing would do. Remove ABS plumbing, shave off everything extra for a bit of weight saving. The subframe should be matching the frame color. But THASSIT. Retro British Racing Green with some white stripes and a #29. I can see it.

The WSS Kitchen Sink Class? Fantastic. There is hope in the world. Here come the GSXR750's, if you squint your ears you can hear them. Cheapest easiest most reliable thing to run here. An direct insult to Yamaha and Kawasaki. But then again, Yamaha deserves it given the "R7" crap they just dumped out. Instead of making a big R3, make a big R6 you shite slingers. At least Suzuki is honest and just plops SV650's out there. Tip of the hat to Duc hanging in there w a Panigale middleweight. 

Top honors though? Aprilia putting an RSV4 in the dryer on high, cutting the motor in half and making "real bike" Twins Cup 660. Sure, the suspension comes naked-soft, but we all toss that sort of stuff anyway. They are not of course going to make a triple engine. But still, care to hop in with a big twin or wee V4 Noale? One can dream. We got lucky on the 660, unlikely bike. 

Honda, are you seeing the Kitchen Sink Challenge? How couldn't you? Kawasaki may have a fresh bike on the drawing board that is pulled into production. The Triumph crafty homologation of a Street Triple must have folks thinking. Hey, what about KTM? A Duke with fairings. Do it Orange!

So very interesting where the post 600 inline 4 class is going and how. Riveted.
