Spotted testing...

Looks like tubeless rims, bolt-on sub-frame and pillion pegs.

Is it me or does it look very lean and trim.
Finally keeping bike weights down? Would be a good move.

I thought that: it looks a lot lighter than previous versions.

The MCN article (take the details as you will) says
suspension now comes from Showa, rather than WP, and it appears to be longer travel, perhaps as much as 250mm at both ends. To counteract the seat height issues, it appears Triumph have slimmed the bike down although it will still be on the taller side

Looks like tubeless wheels as well 👍 .

If it has a quickshifter as well that ticks all the boxes.
