New NAKED Speed 675 for 2008



Its official. A triple based on the 675 chassis and suspension is on the way. Expensive though (relatively). Pretty cool!

Naked bikes are for Hooligans. If you are not a hooligan I guess I can understand why you wouldn't like it.


Me...I'd take the Speed Triple over that thing.

It's friggin' hot as hell..... That bike is pure sex to me. I've ALWAYS been a fan of the Speed Triple, but this just turns the appeal up a (huge!) notch for me!

I like both faired and naked, but done right, a naked bike can look really mean.

I have always loved Speed Triples. They are so wicked and definitely not for the faint of heart.
But is it really a triple if its based on the 675 (4cyl)?

The 675 is a 3 cyl as well.

jk = just kidding.

Anyways, it'd be even better if they could rig up a single sided swingarm, but I think the design and engineering would be way too expensive for this bike.
