    Or if you fancy something a bit bigger with a bit more oomph there is always the new Triumph Rocket 2500cc...

    one of my Polish coworkers is getting one of three allocated to Poland. I think he's going through a midlife crisis as he got divorced, got a Thai girlfriend, bought a Jeep trackhawk, and now the Rocket III

    The new TFC stuff from Triumph really doesn't do it for me. You're paying a HUGE premium for carbon bits and ohlins front forks (on the thruxton R at least). The sales team of course tells you it will be a highly collectible bike in the future....but Triumph has some of the WORST depreciation.

    Agreed, Triumph residuals are not the best, even here in the UK. It takes years to build up the brand confidence to get those strong second hand values. BMW's are still (surprisingly, considering how unreliable they are) holding their value well in the UK, Harley's do well too. Japanese bikes are generally solid and depreciate at a steady rate (with the odd exception that bombs) and Italians are a bit of a mixed bag. Ducati's seem to hold their price well until they get to 3 or 4 years old then nose dive, Aprilia's drop quickly in the first few years and the level out, Moto Guzzi's drop like a stone and then after a few years appreciate... Go figure. Chinese bikes are worth toss all two weeks after purchase !

    It looks amazing up close in the flesh, i spent a good 5 mins looking at it, it looks very well made, and just looks right to the eye. its a FXDR 114 Harley Davidson Nasca designed, fuck its cool.

    Sorry Dave, your preference for all things KTM nullifies your opinion on esthetics.....

    Ha Ha, fair enough. As for KTMs, its all about the ride. Ive only ever brought one bike on looks. (MV) never buy a bike on looks alone. As for the FXDR, it would be totally hopeless for my riding style, and roads i ride. But i often ride with 2 mates on 2012 1200 Sportster Harley's. Man can those guys ride those bikes hard, they handle surprisingly well. I just liked the FXDR,s looks, it looks amazing, as dose the FTR 1200 Indian. But theres so much better bikes out there for general riding, they may not look like supermodels, but KTMs ride well, and the 790 is more than enough motorcycle for most riders.

    Took the FTR for test ride yesterday, my take... ride was short but overall it would not be one (I) would buy especially at the price point. Motor had real good torque and good acceleration. Removing the baffles on the Akras to un cork it would have been nice to hear the motor. More of a flowing cornering bike I thought based on the rake. Bounced the rev limiter quick tho was not expecting to shift at 9k. Suspension is on the stiff side but do able. Menu was pretty easy to navigate. The race color looks best for my taste. I rode my gen1 T to the demo and definitely 2 different rides that’s for sure.
