2007 Triumph Speed Triple from United Kingdom
A fun, flexible hooligan!
Randomly, the bike stalled in traffic. I had to bump start it down hill. Never re-occurred since?!
The best fun I have yet had on a bike. I've test driven quite a lot!
The acceleration is awesome (as long as you can keep the front end down).
The in-gear performance is great, you can be very lazy and leave in fourth or fifth most of the day, there is just so much torque.
Long distance is sometimes uncomfortable. Though I have done Bristol to Peterborough and back in a day with no great discomfort.
The economy has been a revelation! Today I ran from Bristol to Gosport and then back up as far as Salisbury before I had to refuel. (153.2 miles and 3.06 gallons = 50.1 mpg, meaning a theoretical range of 198 miles).
I regularly get 44mpg from this, and she doesn't get an easy life ;)
I would recommend this bike to anyone, especially in Roulette Green!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
