If the photos shown here prove to be representative of the production bike, the new Triumph (which may simply be known by its displacement, e.g., Triumph 23 or Two-Liter) will use shaft final drive on the left and have a huge rear tire. Fuel injection is almost a given, and some sources even speculate that an automatic transmission could be in the works as an option. Although Triumph has referred to the new maximum motorcycle as a "standard," the styling on the bike in the photos is very cruiseresque, with plenty of chrome, a wide, scooped saddle, a buckhorn handlebar, dual headlights, long chrome fender rails, and Americanized lines. This prototype motorcycle has three pipes, but they probably incorporate an expansion chamber under the bike, and a three-into one or three-into-two would seem like a natural variation. The fuel may be carried under the saddle to provide room for an airbox, unless the flat engine leaves sufficient room for the needed airbox volume immediate above it. That could be what the chrome plates conceal. Cast wheels, triple disc brakes, an inverted telescopic fork, and fairly standard dual rear damper-spring assemblies are obvious from the photos, and it appears as if the frame could be a large aluminum box, at least in the steering-head area.
