Late '11 Build, MY12 Diablo Red Triumph Street Triple R
My first unrestricted bike to replace my first bike (SFV650), and thus far I don't see myself replacing it any time soon.
Have had it now for almost 12 months. Purchased second hand mid 2015, with roughly 7500kms.
This bike is my daily, and serves as my work commuter and weekend blaster. Now has almost 16k kays on the clock.
Like I say, I can't see myself ever replacing this bike. It does everything I need it to, and it does it very well.
Compared to my old SFV650 it is obviously far more capable in every regard, with far better components, and the build quality is far better. They are built to a different price point and market, so unfair to compare against each other.
The SFV650 was very nice to just jump on and ride. Very comfortable and 'lazy'. And far more economical than the Striple.
The SFV would return low 4l/100 on the highway, and high 4s around town. I don't think I ever saw >5 and I did see high 3s a couple of times on the highway. Phenomenal really.
The Striple returns low 5s on the highway, if ridden sedately, and low 7s around town ridden aggressively. Average consumption over the last 8k kays on the Striple is 6.5l/100.
