2014 Triumph Street Triple 675
I bought this bike new from Latus Motors in Portland mid 2015 to replace the broken 955 Daytona, but guess what? it couldn't hold a candle to that fabulous machine. I didn't keep it very long. Soon after getting it home I saw the announcement that Triumph would be bringing out a 1200cc modern version of the iconic parallel twin from years gone by. Happily I sent them my $500 deposit and began crossing the 6 months off the calendar. Feeling no remorse, I said goodbye as I rode off on the very first Thruxton R delivered to North America*
