The reason triumph didn't place the highway pegs on is that it doesn't fit their narrative of Sport bike first, Cruiser second and Touring bike a distant third.
Agreed. I refer to it as a "giant naked sportbike", rather than a "power cruiser".
I have to think that Triumph is considering a touring-oriented bike based on a tweaked 2500 case and different chassis, but may be reluctant to risk cannibalizing sales of the GT without taking market share from other manufacturers. The compromise would be to come out with a range of actual touring accessories.
