Default World's Smallest Mudguard award goes to...

... the new Street Triple.

Why even bother? Zero stone protection, zero dirt protection.

I'm sure they sell a fender extender as one of their 100 add on acce$$ories.




+ edit: Can't say I actually like the new version aesthetically. Why do headlights have to get more and more aggressive every year?

Agree completely. I really don't like the general trend for short, stumpy styling. I like to see something over the full length of the back wheel.

I prefer the headlights to last year's - the 2018 ones looked sleepy to me with the eyelids half-closed. Forgetting the aggressiveness, the new shape looks more traditional to me.

Totally agree - and given that they have to stick the number plate on a stalk because of this, it's just frustrating.

Over all, I'd still like one, though

The front 'guard on the Speed Twin is equally short and lacking in protection qualities. Fitting an extender to it would look silly as it would have to be very long to be effective.

I was given the keys to a Street Triple R when my T100 went in for it's one year service. My word it is rapid and nimble, even on the every day street setting. I'd hate think how mad it would be in the sport setting!!!
