More Competition - Triumph 675 Tiger Cub

Didn't see a 'general bike talk' subforum, so posting this here:

We know Kawasaki just stepped up to the plate with their Versys as a direct Wee-Strom competitor, and it looks like Triumph may join the club w/ a 675cc version of the Tiger.

It even has the same lack of belly pan as the wee, but in this case all 3 headers are exposed.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

It seems more an SV650 competitor. As the Versys, no pillon room, no luggage room so it's versatility is limited compared to the Strom. Sport Touring, ok. Adventure Touring, nope. I would not take that very far off the pavement.

Why do they try and make the front half of the bike practical and the back half is still a sportbike with the tail section aiming for the moon and high pegs?

How am I gonna strap my big Pelicans to that?

I like it but agree about the foot peg placement (front). No good for me.

Brake on the left, shift on the right? Chain drive on the right? I hope that's a flipped image.
Oh, wait. A little search shows this is a photoshop job.
