Triumph Moto3?

I wonder if we could maybe, hopefully, perchance be seeing Triumph enter the Moto3 ring? I mean Moto3 bikes are 250cc single cylinders

Granted a Moto3 engine is NOTHING like a road going single, just ask honda how similar the CBR300 is to the NSF250RW, but what it is, is a FANTASTIC marketing tool!

Do it Triumph

nope, just a thought framed as a question. Aprilia used the marketing tie in for years when they we're building all the 125cc and 250cc championship bikes with the RS250 and RS125

KTM the same with the RC's, although the RC race bike came first as did the Aprilia's. If Triumph does it they would be in reverse.

they should bring that 125 to more markets, american's would love it and it would be a great alternative to the honda grom which look dinky (sorry honda fans)

Yea but Aprilia is such a low volume brand I just dont think it makes sense. The only 125 sport bike in NA is the CBR, theres just not a huge market for them, I think their capacity is best left in Europe... Although I would admittedly be all over an RS125, the 250 no longer exists, but it WAS a 2 stroke

But I would for SURE love one of those little RS 125's as a commuter. I wonder what it would cost to get it imported, would be a great little run about

me too, wouldn't mind having those to mess around with locally, still would need one of my bigger cc bikes.
