Guess it was inevitable, once Honda killed off the CBR600RR.

+1 for them sounding better, I have my doubts they'll be as reliable though

I think since they are a smaller operation they might have an easier time with quality control. They should also realize the gravity of the opportunity they are being given and a failed engine (or string of incidents) will hurt reputation, sales etc.

I had been wondering what would happen once the rumors of the CBR600RR going bye bye.

Good for Triumph.
