First was the Street Triple R, then came the Daytona 675R, and now the legendary Speed Triple gets the R treatments.  Ohlins front and back, Brembo monoblock front brakes, lightweight wheels, and a red rear subframe like the Daytona 675R.  NICE!

THAT is extremely tempting.   Inlove

I read that the 675R is not on the menu for 2012.  Perhaps these R versions are single year runs?  If that's the case, the chance of me picking up a used one in a couple of years is  probably pretty slim.

Yes I saw that about the 675R too, but the R-model has not been 1-year with the Street Triples.  Shrug

What really interests me is the '12 Bonnie Steve McQueen Edition.  Not because Triumph can't stop beating a dead... um.... actor, and not because the side cover sports a genuine replica of a dead guy's signature... but the matte green/black color combo is sah-weet!  I also like the black logo on the tank... subtle.

I was disappointed that a 1000cc super-Bonnie was not divulged, as was rumored on the 'net.

I think they're calling that the Thunderbird these days.  Smile

Hey, it's 1000cc...plus.

The Tbirds today are hardly a standard-style roadster like the Bonnie, or the Tbird 900 previously.  

No bother - I'm 10x more excited for the Speed Triple R!   Inlove

If by "around town" you mean Mulholland, Angeles Crest, Highway 33, Ortega, and Palomar, I agree.

I ride a Speed Triple with uprated suspension, and it never struck me as a puttin' around sort of machine.  I'd like to get a Bonnie for that sort of thing.

I've read reviews before... they looked different.

That's marketing material + spec sheet!
