just been reading about an article about triumph which says they are planning a 250cc single engined bike, mostly for the indian market, but would come in various guises. why does the idea of a 250cc single cafe racer excite me?

Must admit I have always liked singles but still am easily pleased!

The good old 200cc Tiger cub back in the 50's 60's
I don't get angry, I get even
to agree with you there Hawk750.
assumption is the mother of all f*** ups.
I used to have a 1966 Bantan Cub (Triumph and BSA were the same company at that time, and used up BSA Bantam chassis with Tiger Cub engines) and loved it. Some years later I also had a Triumph Tiger 70 (250cc 4 stroke single), which came to me as a sidecar outfit. It was too underpowered to pull a sidecar, so I took it off, and rode it a lot, but found it a bit too slow for serious riding and ended up letting it go.
Will look forward to seeing what the new bike is like.
First new bike i got was a BSA C15, reg HBA 106D (sad)
£210 from Queens Park Motors, Bolton Road, Salford. Loved it and had many a dice with the Cub's, alway's came better off on me C.
I have a BAntam
in my garage, and in fairness have never found the time to get it running(even though it wouldn't take much), and i like the idea of a second bike to potter on as it were! looking forward to seeing this bike!
