I'm so incredibly close to selling my 05 RR and getting a new Speed triple. I can't stop thinking about them! I need opinions...

Ultimate hooligan bike. It's got a great, unique look. I'm not so big on the lights, but because it's naked you can just change them out. Lots of torque from the triple, cool single sided swingarm. Makes a better city bike than an race replica. I can't see too many downsides, I think the electrical gremlins have mostly been smote.

Now, I recommend looking for a used one instead of new; you can really save with a private purchase.

Cool bikes. I'm more into the sport bikes but they are serious performers. Look at some other similar bikes though. The new Ducati Hypermotard is pretty sweet and the KTM superduke is badass as well.

my friend had one in white, i wasn't too impressed. i'm not a big fan of naked bikes, and the triumph didn't have a windscreen so that means no wind protection at high speeds. but if u like it, go for it.

Bike is incredible....BUT I don't know if I would buy one.....my nephew has the speed four and it needed some injector and clutch cable replaced and he has had a REALLY BAD experience at two triumph dealers....he had his bike at one dealership for nearly three weeks and when he called to check on his bike they hadn't even ordered his parts yet

I would rock that bike. But I'd rather stick to sport bikes but if that is the style of bike you are leaning for I've heard nothing but great things. Triumph has really stepped up the last few years and have been putting out some great bikes.

AMEN! i considered getting one because i love the look of them. but after looking around for custom parts and whatnot i came up with not much. someday i would like to have one though

either way would be a good choice... just depends on your riding style and demands.

Sexy as it might seem.. Don't forget that's it's Made in England.. Some might consider that a major disadvantage. :)

i rode on a while back and it was a trip! decent position and plenty of usuable power and torque. all triumphs with the 3 cylinder are a blast to ride.
