triumph to take on wss in ’08


last 675 post… for now :twisted: (arghhh!!)

triumph has teamed up w/ scuderia caracchi (formerly ncr ducati) to field a 675 in world supersport next year. it’s been some time since triumph has backed a race team and they’re doing it right.

they did some testing in qatar last weekend and didn’t do too badly albeit a little off the race pace. not to make excuses, but word on the street is that they were running w/ a stock engine. goes to show u how good the 675 is straight off the factory floor.
