1996 Triumph Sprint 900
A lovely-looking, relatively reliable new classic with plenty of power, but poor low-speed handling
The ignition coils failed after about 8 years, as did the ignition pickup coil. Very common with T3 Triumphs.
At about 12,000, clogged carburetors caused running failure.
A beautiful-looking bike that draws attention everywhere.
Quite top-heavy, which makes slow handling difficult.
Very tall - if you're short it's tough to get your feet on the ground. However, the bike can be lowered 1-2 inches by rotating the rear axle 180 degrees and slipping the fork tubes up.
Lovely on the highway.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
