Yes the new Notrun does look sexy, but way overpriced.

The 961 is very poorly built.
After 8  years of godawful production, there is no other way to describe it.
Avoid if you like to ride.
I very nearly bought one, but was put off by the all of the problems.
Then Triumph came out with their Thruxton 1200r and that has been excellent, great looking and a real performer too. ( 109 mph TT lap)

Not that either.

As many of you have suspected for a long time - maybe I'm in the wrong place here? Get me coat?

I like them standard, well ahead of their time when they came out

 Don't get me werong on that, I do like bits of both, particularly the GB one (sorry wozz- mainly the 90˚ factor) but am wondering if that's an Egli frame on GB's pic one...?
