There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.

Yesterdays MCN article on triumph said the last two bikes that are to move to the Chanburi site are the Speed Triple 1050 & Tiger 1200. No mention of the Tiger Sport or R3. I wonder if they are part of the 4,500 (20 per day?) that will remain to be built at Hinckley along with the Moto2. Mushroom info' from the factory.
Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

You mean you trust MCN to report accurately  :008:

The only ones for certain will be the Moto2 765, "specials" and development bikes, Street Triple 765 would make sense, don't know how much longer the Sport is going to be produced, with the tie in with Bajaj (India) I can see their road bike going to 250-300, 600, 900 & 1200 engines  :084:

:084: That's why I quoted MCN as saying it. Get out clause in case it's the usual bollux.

I'd be surprised if the R3 goes to Thailand, it went once before & they brought it back, said it was too big for them.

Maybe it will only be the Moto2 & the TFC's.

That would make sense Paul, can't see them selling a lot of Rocket 3's into the Asian market, possibly some assembly of them at the Brazil factory for the American market ?

Strong rumours updated 1050 engine going out to 1160 for new 21 Speed triple and whether they update Sport is a moot point. Pics of test bikes out there. Still wont be buying any new ones though  :001:

 Your 865 is Thai built! Cant see the problem.

I know that now and when I bought it.... that's not the issue for me and a lot of others.

What is the issue? Triumph have to be competitive in the bike sales market or they will go the way of Norton. It seems like good business practice to me.

Dreadfyul analagy I think. Norton is a case of fraud and very shady practises. None of which can be said of Triumph.
