I think poor marketing also hurt the GT's sales. I remember walking past the one I ended up buying at the dealer a few times and just thinking it would be a overpriced FJR type bike, even tho it looked great I just walked right past it. I figured Triumph was just an overpriced under performing euro brand. Then I saw mention of it on this site and did my homework, boy was I wrong. Now I realize if I were to buy another bike of any genre, the Triumph offering would be solidly in my short list.
