35k miles in 2 years, one speedo cable. Other than that it's started everytime, run's like a Swiss watch and been a genuine ball to ride in everything from a foot of snow to 100+ degrees, sea level to 5k feet, never a hiccup, paint, powdercoating and chrome still look like new, Best bike I ever owned.



I finally wore out the stock chain and just now ordered a set of sprockets from AFAM and a new D.I.D ZVM chain. Other than that it's been gas in the tank, push "start" and go.

Gee, kind of like an old Kawasaki.



It's nice to see an alternative to the UJM from the UK though. Who woulda thought?



Guess that ol' CNC has leveled the playing field some. Wonder why they don't make any "lightweight" stuff like an MX, dual sport, motard, etc. Would be nice to see someone racing in the dirt wearing a Triumph jersey.

i'ming guess you are refering to an '02 speed triple, but you neglected to specify what you ride

I've heard some rumors of a 650 or 800 speed triple, I bet that would be a blast too.

Default Triumph management read longride's memo

"A concrete change is that all new bikes going forward will have either the parallel twin or the iconic triple engine, something that's unique for Triumph in the motorcycle market. Mantoni comments: "Triumph is all about individuality and riding something that not everyone else has. We have worked hard to define TriumphÂ’s identity and the success of our latest models is evidence that the consumers like what we have done""



longride you were right seems like somone got the message about not playing in the inline 4 supersport market. Congrads longride you right! I and many other MOrons were dead wrong..

Yeah but that 4 cylinder Triumph of yours has a Suzuki motor or something like that in it, right?
