I can't wait to see and hear this in action. Nice to see Dorna not picking the most obvious choice and even giving a British firm a chance (Okay, the bikes are basically built in India nowerdays but still)

Moving to a triple will be really interesting, I can't wait to hear the whole field of triples flying by at the start of the race.

This sounds indeed also quite ok from further away, but probably is without db-eater. The stock exhaust sound is not my thing. In general I do not really like the sound of the triples. What I especially hate about the triples is that whining noise you hear when riding onboard or close by (you can hear it from 0:17 to 0:19 in your video). That is an absolute turn-off for me. From far away with a good exhaust it does sound quite decent though  ;)

There was a myth that early Daytona's and Striples (the first couple years fo the new 675 engine) would blow up at any moment.

This is utter Bull shit... I Own A 2006 Daytona (over 12,000 miles with mulitple track days and two european tours) and a 2013 Daytona. Neither of which have self destructed or had any issues whatso ever. And i know plenty of people who have owned other Triumph Triples (Street, Speed, Daytona, Sprint..) and I have only heard of one horror story and that was mainly because he rebuilt the bike.

Like everything, Poor maintinance leads to issues. There will be teething issues like everything. But You cant compare this brand new engine to the Current CBR 600 engines used in Moto 2 because the engine because its been around for a while (It's first itteration was in 2003!?) so 14 years to get a perfect engine will lead to good reliablitly

Guys please refrain from speaking absolute bullshit about triumph I race one in a national series in South Africa and I have nothing less than 15% more torque than the 4 cylinder race bikes and roughly about the same horsepower in fact my bike is much faster im a straight line and this bullshit that they are unreliable is absolute rubbish my bike breaks last out of all the 600s. I'm riding a 2012 mixed with 2010 and I have full akropovic exhaust system,hm quickshifter, power commander 5 and we have degreed the cams I had ohlins in the rear I changed to whitepower and might test a ktech. 
Kind Regards

Yep, The 3 cylinder MV F3 is said to be so powerfull and brutal that it is not efficient on track. the 800cc gives the same power that a 4 cylinder liter from the last decade.

But about the sound, let be honest. The stock sound of the streettriple is just horrible ^^ It's like a high pitch wissle.

I like the triple whine from Triumph, but clearly the engine in the teaser is not a stock unit
