My hunt for my new bike is underway and first on the list for me is the Triumph Speed Triple 1050cc bike. Before we start Iâ€™ll be straight to the point and fess up that Iâ€™m no great story teller and spell check will probably go mad trying to fix my grammatical errors with the below, but I just donâ€™t care as I feel compelled to try and tell my test rides with a sense of passion. Iâ€™ll admit I was pretty nervous at first considering the power that was rumbling between my legs waiting desperately for me to roll on the throttle just so it could show off on how fast it can get from point A to point B with allot of style and serious amounts of low end torque. They say itâ€™s a bike that does 0-100km in about 3 seconds flat and Iâ€™m confident after being prompted by the sales guy to test those waters, those claims would be entirely true. The raw power did come as a shock at first, however, after we got acquainted I began to understand her story and why she is the way she is. I got to experience first hand what allot of reviews had being saying â€˜goldâ€™. The wheel base is shorter than its little sister the Street triple which I felt gave the bike sharper steering. Sure it doesnâ€™t look like your normal super sports bike, but rest assured it will have no problems walking the talk in the real world environment of day to day riding if thatâ€™s your thing. The test ride ended and I dismounted with a huge grin on my face feeling that a bar had just been set & set very high. Iâ€™ll confess that although this bike was on my list of bikes to try, I never really thought Iâ€™d take it seriously and it would be a race between the other two I have on the list. Now the bar has been set very high and the Benelli TNT CafÃ© Racer & MV Augusta Brutale have some tough work ahead if they plan on taking up the prime position in my garage at home. What are you thoughts or expierences with any of these bikes?
