Quality

I'm a huge Triumph fan and have a 955i Speed triple and a Daytona too, i've had 5 Hinkley Triumphs since 1994 but i have to say i'm not convinced on the finish on the latest ones, both mine are 2004 and great but the Bonnies etc look very poorly finished, i fancy a Scrambler but everytime i see one that has been used it looks to have deteriorated quickly finish wise.

It's a Speed Triple, as it has a single-sided swinging arm; the Street Triple has a conventional swinging arm.

Quality

Got to agree on the quality issue, the "modern Triumphs" aren't too bad but the "classic range" is very poor. I had a Thruxton and it required constant tlc to keep it in good nick. Even then i had problems with lacquer worm, peeling and rust. My Speed Triple and Street Triple seem much closer to Jap levels though.

Cowboys/ free advertising

Why do MCN allow these cowboys on here peddling all kinds of crap. This board is for motorcycle comment not free advertising. So piss of with your overpriced crap and leave us in peace. The problem with the Retro Triumphs is that they are built in Asia and the QC is piss poor. How do I know? I have been around the factory and seen it with my own eyes. There is no loyalty or tradition with the folk putting the Triumph Marque together. It's just a job and a boring one at that.
