My old man brought home a shiny new toy last night that he picked up last weekend from Triumph City (on a site note, excellent service!)...a brand spanking new 2010 model Speed Triple Ltd. Edition in an absolutely gorgeous red w/ white stripe colour scheme. Took this bad boy out for a quick ride yesterday, being mindful that it needs a proper run in of course and all I can say is holy sh*t this thing is an amazing machine. The 3 cyl engine is fantastic, I ride a Ducati monster normally and have to say I was blow away by how smooth it feels considering the amount of torque you have on tap. A twist of the wrist in 2nd and 100km/h approaches in the blink of an eye - even sitting on the freeway in 6th the bike accelerates with no hesitation - I honestly had to check to see I was in top gear! Riding position is very comfortable, lots of control at all speeds - does not feel very heavy considering its actual weight. Exhaust note is beautiful if perhaps a bit quiet - nothing that can't be fixed with a nice set of Arrows or Staintunes though Can't wait to take it out again!
