    I quite like the way Triumph have moved the numbers from 675 to 765. It will be interesting to see what a difference the 90cc make, though it is reported as quite a different motor not just a bore and stroke.

    Personally from a marketing point of view I think they should have popped out to a number starting with a 8 as the 8-900cc market is where it is at presently. They will still have the 'little' bike.

    If they can keep the weight down, it will be quite a weapon as the sport version is reputed to deliver 125 bhp with a very flat torque curve as per the 675. I just loved my 675. I don't dislike my GSX-S 1000 but it just doesn't thrill me like the Triple did. It just feels a bit bland, despite the horsepower and traction control.

    Enjoying mine. The relentless increase in capacity just brings new reasons to add weight. I'm so over weight.

    It's across the board interestingly. Look at the 1200cc adventure bikes, Harleys exceeding 1800cc the '900' or thereabouts is back.

    I;m finding my 850 Ducati about perfect for my riding - goes silly mad if you twist the right wrist, light, even economical (WTF) and brakes like a mad bitch.

    well go for a run and stop eating sugar.

    Also, if you mean lardy motorbikes then yes. I'm with you.

    Really enjoying the bike after KSS did their magic, a totally different ride, no grimacing waiting for the usually hard kick up the RRRss when hitting the big bumps, no front forks diving or trying to snap wrists crossing rail tracks etc.

    Cheers Robert and team for being fast, efficient and knowing exactly what your doing.

    Got within a ball hair of buying a Nitron shock for my Speed Triple from these guys....in full fairness he disclosed that prices would be going up in the new year and I foolishly didn't pull the trigger at the time. I really should just go ahead and get one, I've heard nothing but great things about both Nitron and KSS.

    Best time to buy is now because the sooner you do the longer you enjoy. Both my Triumphs have been supremely improved.

    KSS put a Nitron NTR R3 shock on my Fireblade and revalved the front with Racetech gold valves earlier this month. Huge difference to the bike, and Robert was awesome to deal with. Good communication throughout and excellent service when I went up there to get the work done. Pricing was very reasonable too.

    I would not hesitate to recommend them

    I'm just in the process of booking a time to take my MV F3 675 into them to get both ends sorted out. It's good to see so many positive recommendations on here for their services. I'm looking forward to seeing what a difference it'll make to my little Pepperami.

    I'll report back once the changes have been implemented.

    Are you wanting to get your MV more comfortable for road use?
