Looks sharp, I wonder if that would be able to compete in the SV650 race class?
Kind of bummed it's a parallel twin though, the 750cc v-twin they used in their Shiver was always a great sounding engine

Damn now this is what I'm talking about

Still not fucking with the middle weight GOAT (any Triumph with the 675 or 765) but very interesting nonetheless

I'd love to ride a race prepped SV650 one day. ~90HP + ~350 or so lbs sounds fun.

Wonder if it's a 180 or 270 twin?

If it's a 270 twin like the FZ-07 it will sound just like a V-twin. No word yet.

Still riding in UT, 50 and sunny in the SLC so I took a lunch ride. Last year I made it to Thanksgiving weekend before having to park them for the winter, we'll see if I can beat that for this year.

The mileage tally for 2018 (so far) is:
  • Triumph: 3600 miles
  • VStrom: 5900 miles
  • Kizashi: 6100 miles

Riding season ended the weekend of Thanksgiving again due to some snow. That means it's time to start ordering parts for winter maintenance and upgrades.
Triumph is close to 24k so time for a major interval service - valves, fluids, and stuff. VStrom: Going to do a throttle body sync and replace the TPS that seems to be failing, new rear tire, flush some fluids. But I've decided to sell and upgrade in the spring so mainly getting it ready to list early next year.

Same!

Need to replace the stator. Maybe I'll take it in to get the valves checked too.
