    Well I had some spare time . . .
    I'll be interested in learning the TFC handling changes, given that the axle heights have been kept uphill while the rake and trail of 4.1° and .33" respectively have been reduced.
    The wheelbase also seems to have been shortened about 4", based upon my estimates.
    All this should quicken the handling up some; however, Triumph has not posted the wheelbase for some mysterious reason.
    I also see that the new seat height has been elevated .5", which is bad news for us inseam challenged riders.

    Love it. I would like to see a standard in red and black. Don't know if I'd like to see the price though...

    Just noticed on the official Triumph website that the engine specs show compression to be 10.8 to 1. Surprised the HP is so low given the compression and displacement increase. Guess this unit will need premium fuel. I wonder is they have incorporated any knock sensors to prevent detonation?

    What power would the current model (2300cc) put out with this compression instead of the anaemic 8.7 to one?
