My guess; it makes just under 95 hp, lower in the rev range than the Daytona. Still fun, but you're right; they doubtlessly will make sure it doesn't out-perform the 1050.



Here's another thought; an upgraded 1050 for 2008 that gets a 15-20hp boost.

Last weekend I had a test ride on a 2006 Triumph 1050 Sprint. Comfy bike but where's the torque??

kpaul is also blissfully unaware that liquid cooling tends to make a bike more of a PITA to work on, since he probably doesn't even do his own oil changes.

I have never had a bike fail off road due to any water cooling problems. That's because my off road bikes are, and will be, air cooled. One less thing to ball up when you're 50 miles from nowhere in the desert.



And, funny thing, when I go out in the desert with my friends my old air cooled DR400 gets to the destination at the same time as the guys on the latest and greatest wunderbikes. Hmmmm. Same thing happens when I'm on the road for that matter. What was that wonderful advantage again?

Default Re: You have a Valkrie?

HAD one ... long gone and much missed.



it's the wretched MO user interface that's ugly. how, exactly, can i change my handle?



my bikes now: K1200LT and 1000 v-strom. neither of them are beauty contest winners, but then again, neither trigger a gag reflex. unlike the new trumpet tart.
