“looking for a cheaper replacement bike for a Fazer FZ1...”

Written on: 19/02/2011

looking for a cheaper replacement bike for a Fazer FZ1 and this came up on ebay with trident underseat pipes, single sided swingarm but high mileage.I've got to say it's absolutely brilliant. Better than a twin or a four. Superb engine, great gearbox and v.good handling now the fork oil's been changed.Suprises lots of big sports bikes and it sounds unbelievable with the trident pipes. now done 66000m and I will be keeping it for ever !!… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2010

I have owned mine for three years and never tire of its great performance. I have used it for courier work for one winter and had a blast around London.

I smile constantly when riding. My partner tell me she fell in love with the bike before me!!!!

Fantastic through the twisty stuff, and can be ridden all day rain or shine.

10 out of 10!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2008

I bought this bike new May 2006, been to France and Spain two up. Comfortable for long distance touring, yet nibble enough for scratching at the week-ends. (solo). The RS can also carry plenty of luggage, I have a 52lt Top Box, and a 28 Lt tank bag, handles great 2 up plus all the luggage. I have been told that the RS could be a collectors bike in years to come as not a great deal of them were made. So if you have a good one as I have, hang on to it.I also have a scooter which I use in the week… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/07/2008

The Triumph Spirit RS is an aggressive sports tourer that rips. Always wanted a VFR and ended up with a Sprint RS with no regrets. Have no interests in a VFR anymore cause this bike destroys it. VFR's are only 800cc and the RS is 955 which makes it better for two up touring or even solo twistys. The wind protection is adequate for a half fairing machine. Buddies on sports bikes are stretching and squerming long before I feel uncomfortable. Great bike for you and that special someone to… Read Full Review

“I'm a 30 year old college student and I've had my 2000...”

Written on: 30/06/2008 by Nites (1 review written)

I'm a 30 year old college student and I've had my 2000 Triumph Sprint RS for 8 years/ Racing Yellow. I have yet to find a bike that meets my needs any better. It's my primary vehicle and gets used as a daily driver for an hour commute. I'm a bigger rider 6'2 300lbs (athletic) and I do not really fit well on a lot of bikes, especially with the low streamlined tanks and tight rearsets. The handling rivals any other sportbike for the backroad twisties. Modifications include a 2 Bros. carbon fiber… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2006 by mineng 101 (1 review written)

I purchased my Triumph Sprint RS in Portland Oregon as my first motorcycle. I admit that it was far more powerful than I needed for a first bike, but the triple cylinder engine has such a broad powerband that it is fairly easy to learn on as long as you do not slam open the throttle. The bike is incredibly fast, I hit 155 on a straight before having to back off, but it does not scream to be thrashed all the time like a full sportbike does. Not to say I didn't thrash it from time to time. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/02/2006 by steventhechef (1 review written)

I bought my Triumph Sprint RS after much research and deliberation.
I spoke to a few mechanics, ST & T100 owners and the forums to see if the raves were just raves, or to justify the bike they had bought.
I took an 03 RS for a spin and fell in love with the bike immediately.
I am most impressed with the rideability, flexibility and powerband. The bike flys, corners, accelerates and makes a great noise to boot (Triumph carbon can).
2up they are equally predicable and comfortable for my wife… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2005 by tbclay (1 review written)

Overall the Triumph Sprint RS is a very easy bike to ride considering its power and speed. The engine sounds throaty and beast-like, and the gears are as smooth as a hot knife through butter. I think the bike looks pretty good but I prefer the look of the Jap bikes, e.g Honda VFR, if I'm honest. That said, everone else loves it, so maybe I'm just used to looking at it. I am pretty annoyed about blistering on the black engine casing and on the alloys (only done 1,900 mainly dry miles) but… Read Full Review

Sorry to hear you had bad aftersales service. I can't fault Philip McCallen Motorcycles in Northern Ireland they are always helpful and friendly every time I go. I only called in while passing one day to see what there was and walked out with a new bike. I thought something was wrong with it but it turned out that it was my fault going to fast and expecting it to stop on a sixpence. I love the Triumph RS and I can't keep the wife of it. 100% better than my old Triumph Bonnie I had in the sixties.

Written on: 20/08/2004 by grobson (5 reviews written)

The triple motor 955i Triumph Sprint RS is excellent from it's bark through to it's user friendliness. The gearbox is great for clutchless upshifts and with well spaced cogs it's great for short shifting or a blast, with no false neutrals found.
Little evidence of wear and tear due to quality of finish. Bike runs on Bridgestones which give very good grip and mileage. Fuel economy is good which relates to good progress as not too many stops required.
Mirrors are buzz free but if you are quite… Read Full Review

Totally agree with all you say but it would be good to have some hard luggage like the ST. Unfortunately soft panniers don't do the job for longer touring.
