Now, if Triumph can just stretch that engine to 900cc and put it in the Tiger chassis...

Or ... Even better, bring the 765 back to the Daytona ... Already rumored  :187:

That's easy though, just tart up the 675 fairing and put it on the Street Triple, with some clip-ons and maybe different footpegs. Like the original Speed Triple was a naked Daytona, the 765 Daytona would be a clothed Street Triple.

I did do some research into whether a 765 engine would slot straight into a Tiger (I haven't got any plans to do it). One article mentioned changed mounting points so it seems it wouldn't be a straight swap. As a historical note, when the first 955cc EFI engine was made, the mounting points were identical to those on the spineback bikes, so the EFI engine could be dropped into a spineback frame for test purposes.

I was waiting with great anticipation for the start of Moto2 this year for that very reason - to hear the sound track of these lovely engines.

Much to my dismay and considereable annoyance, on the Foxtel Sports channel I watch it on, the stupid self-aggrandising commentators would NOT BLOODY SHUT UP - EVER and banged on about useless crap for the whole damn race.  And anytime these idiots took a pause for breath, the sound of the bikes seemed deliberately muted.

In MotoGP it was similar, until the Kiwi commentator Simon said something like 'have a listen to this guys' as the MotoGP bikes blew past at >300 kph.  And that was only for about 2 seconds before the blabbermouths launched once again.

IMHO, that's an important (aural) part of the viewing experience that should be available to the viewing audience.  Instead it is completely overshadowed by these talking-head wankers who are using the forum to grandstand their own self perceived magnificence and have sod all interesting to say.

Feel a bit better now...

The Foxtel feed is the international TV feed provided world wide by Dorna it is the exact same feed everybody watching who is in an English speaking country sees. Don't blame Foxtel for the quality.

The disappointment, for me, with the Quest take over of the Moto GP highlights is that whilst on Ch 4 you only had three 3 min commercial breaks you now have on the sky platform three 5 min commercial breaks, so you have lost 6 mins coverage and also instead of just having very brief  highlights of Moto's 2 & 3 you now only get around 15 mins (approx 1/3) of the Moto GP race instead of more or less the whole of the Moto GP race. You now have extended coverage of Moto's 2 & 3 and and reduced coverage of the Moto GP race.

Each to their own, but I find it not worth watching now.
