And Triumph, if you're reading this, please make both headlights active on low beam, the lopsided look is just not attractive and makes it look like a budget bike.

Do Triumph do that on any of the 1200’s? I only really know Gen 1.

I think all current triumphs with twin h/lights have both on for both dip & main beam.

My 2018 1200 has both on, but the pics of the new 900 show only one on.

I'm guessing that they have moved the Radiator to the sides ... under the side covers.. Then added some Air Deflectors, al - la the 900 ,,. hopefully they haven't messed too much with the Big Triple design.. dropped the weight lower and filled the void left over with an extra 5lts in the Tank Volume..?
