I would change mine to a single exhaust pipe. The double takes up too much space.

A Supertrapp with a few extra discs would be lekker

I was also thinking that. It is a little short, even in the looks department.

Cracker, you and me both.   :-[

But I've looked at all the offerings bike manufacturers have brought out to date (and bringing out) and it's been a case of, "meh, same old, same old.". Even the 790 and T7 is same old, same old.

The CRF 250 Rally had some innovation in it and owning one it really works well but still falls short of the unicorn, 450 class, long service interval, daily driver dual purpose (which after so many years still doesn't exist, and no, the CRF450L isn't it.).

For me, Ducati with their Scrambler and now this Triumph are leading this particular segment, I.e. a retro model with TRUE dual purpose ability.

I agree @blauth! Same old same old..

This Scrambler is something exiting! :thumleft: Also this PR7 is for me something really new and innovative!

Any idea how much this will cost? Not that I could afford it! I just need to remind myself again as to why I should have listened in school  :biggrin:
