Triumph Releases Third Adventure Bike Teaser Video
Triumph has released the third in a series of videos teasing its two upcoming adventure motorcycles, this one describing the bikes’ new chassis.

The on-road version is supposed to be agile for urban use while the off-road version uses a long-travel suspension. Nothing really earth-shattering there, and the voice-over in the video can do a much better job of describing this with a dramatic British accent.
What is important is this video gives us the clearest look at what the bikes will look like. The glimpses are brief but unlike with the first two videos, we can see a lot more detail.
Take a look at the video after the jump and let us know what you think.
