Summary:

I thought my first Triumph would be a classic 60-70, but cannot describe my test ride on this Sprint

Faults:

I had to replace the fuel assembly after ten years it leaked on reserve.

Replaced two tires after 12 years cracking - weathered.

General Comments:

The Triumph is a little high for my height of 5'-9". But a Corbin seat fixed that.

It is fast and very comfortable compared to my previous ride. I say very stable at speed.

No uncomfortable vibrations at speed.

Comfortable riding position.

Little heavy for me, but I am small in stature.

Beautiful paint finish.

More tour/cruise than sport oriented.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
