One of the best bikes I have ever owned. Comfortable seating position with handlebars in the right position. Loads of accessories to customize to your style. Replaced exhaust with Triumph short slash improved performance and sound great. Great handling ability with good breaking capabilities. Loads of low end power but still gets up and goes at higher speeds. Great looking bike you will always find people stopping to have a second look. Great value for the price.
Poor dealer support, check your dealers out in your area get references if possible.
Overall I find the Triumph Speedmaster a real pleasure to ride. It has great handling capabilities as I have always found with the Triumph range. It is a great bike to look at always drawing a crowd. It is quite economical on fuel. I have found that it has loads of low end power but you are still able to get up and go being able to maintain quite a high cursing speed. I have had it up to around 190 kilometer/hour = 118.0605265 mile/hour (mph) with no real sweat. Overall I would recommend this bike as a good all rounder reliability is great, up until now having no real maintenance issues.
I have however found that dealer support can be a bit of an issue as it is quite a unique bike appealing to a selected market. This can however be overcome by checking out your dealers and getting references from other Triumph owners in your area.
