Triumph Speed Triple 1050 RS Bike Insurance
I'm 6ft 1 and 14st and I am very comfortable on this bike over Long distances.
Starts first time, electronic start and keyless entry which I love as you can leave the key in your pocket.
The brakes are Brembos front and rear and stop very well. The bike also has a lot of engine braking when blipping through the gears.
It feels very nimble and agile around tight corners and easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces.
This bike is 148bhp which is plenty fast enough for the roads where I will be riding. it has lots of low down grunt and the quick shifter is sublime.
I have rides just under 500 miles and I have averaged 35 mpg and it has been a mixture of motorways, open roads, street riding etc. I find it very reasonable.
I can’t fault the comfort of this bike, the riding position is a great whether you are street riding or if you want to get your head down, the bars, pegs and seat all feel absolutely perfectly aligned for me. I’m only 5’8” and I haven’t altered the factor set up. I could ride this bike forever…
No issues, usual Triumph quality build. Very happy.
Equally as powerful as the engine, great anchors. Nice lever adjustment too for varying levels of bite.
This bike is a big machine but once you’re moving it’s beautifully balanced and very nimble, you can turn on a hair pin and handles like it’s on rails, assuming you can ride it to it’s full potential (which I’m still working on) There’s so much safety tech on this machine and various riding modes for every occasion.
It pulls really well through the entire range and your in 12+ points territory in a blink of an eye. 0-60 in 3.Something seconds. Can’t fault the endless power or smooth and rapid delivery.
Depends how you ride but I imagine it is reasonably economical if you ride tidy?!
It’s a comfy ride although the seat is a touch hard and the suspension is a bit stiff . But compared to my old CBR 600, it’s a breeze.
Full on brembo’s, say no more.
It’s light and nimble and great in corners as well as the straight.
Well the engine is the 765 cc and pulls like a train! It’s an absolute beast.
I’ve only had it 6 months and I would say it’s cheaper than my 2013 CBR 600.
Wouldn't be comfortable for long journeys as no wind protection available that is decent.
Needed a new wiring harness after a few weeks of ownership. Fuel connector came of the tank while out on a run. Brembo front brakes squeak and I find it a pain .
Brembo good brakes, when not squeaking.
Excellent performance spins up no messing about.
About the same as the rest.
Not bad over 100 miles but not much more without a rest. Totally impractical for passengers unless you carried a monkey.
No problems but only done 1500 miles so far.
Never ridden a bike with better brakes. Wonderful controlled stopping with one finger.
Brilliant ride and cornering. Fantastic brakes. Great sound.
Smooth and wonderful torque. No need for a gearbox.
45 to the gallon generally but only 15 liter tank.
