Summary:

Not as quick as you'd expect, but it's BRITISH

Faults:

Battery died after dropping the bike at a standstill.

General Comments:

Not as quick as you'd expect or want, but WHAT A SOUND.

I've put an aftermarket Barracuda oval exhaust on mine, and even with the baffles in, it sounds AWESOME.

The bike doesn't even compare to my Suzuki RF900R in performance stakes, but more people like the Triumph and it's British.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
