Bought this in may 07 after selling my ZX10(1990 version). I wanted something that would handle and reach the speed limit so I bought this after a short relationship with a Laverda Diamante.
I'd had it for a week the went on a journey to portsmouth, 225 mile trip with only one stop. The TT crusied at a bit above the limit (90 to 100) all the way down (and back) and when I arrived I wasn't aching which was a good sign and not the sort of thing I was expecting from a sportsbike.
The fuel injection issues have been sorted on this bike as it's one of the later models and appears to be better than a GPZ900 I once had. One of the shocks I had was MPG, I get about 150 from a tank and when the light comes on I have about 40 mile left, this does depend on how you ride it as I have run out once, on the plus side the bike was easy to push. I do miss a proper gauge which tells me the fuel level.
Handling is excellent with dunlop D207s, may get even better with more expensive rubber but if it works why change it. Everyone seems to go on about the sharp brakes but this is something I haven't noticed when compared to my previous bikes.
The engine is revvy and quick, produces plenty of power, I sometimes miss the brute power of the ZX10 as you have to think about changing down a cog when you want a bit of power but I have come down in cc to just over half so that would be the same on any of the batch of 600s. I think the bike was unfairly slammed for the low down fuel issues, this bike was never made for city riding, it was designed for the open roads like many of todays sportsbikes.
The triumph feels and looks like a bigger bike, people often miss the 600 on the tail section and ask the cc. the riding position is not as extreme as some of the other 600s
The bike does every thing within my limits as a rider, it's comfortable on a long ride, breaks the speed limit, stops well and goes round corners very well. It also has something the other 600s don't, it's british and it always get people looking at it thanks to the name on the tank.
