My Triumph Speed 4

A Triumph Four has found its way into my It is black and sleek and boasts 600 So why the Speed Four? Well, year I had the pleasure to ride my Carolyn’s, Speed Four for the

I could not stop thinking it, dreaming about it. I coveted it. I several other sport and longed for several more. My sport bike was a Suzuki 750.

I have never had the to test one. So when the account said I was ready for my bike purchase, I opted for the The Suzuki dealers I visited as test-ride friendly as my local Sports of Tampa Bay who indulges me I beg, plead and grovel to their bikes. I am a somewhat personality there, as they graciously handed over the to many a motorcycle.

Thanks I truly understand the philosophy the dealers’ policies of not allowing rides, especially sport but serious buyers should be more graciously. I purchased I was allowed to ride from I was given the opportunity!

Ok, so what this little black Well, for starters, the Speed is fittingly named after its This … bike’s is a sophisticated 599cc, DOHC, 16 liquid cooled, four-inline unit with cam profiles and a sequential electronic fuel system with forced air

It has the capacity for fully adjustable and rear suspensions which for a wide range of set-up including the ability to lower it a tad more for those of us in need of skosh less distance seat and pavement.

The twin air along with the pair of headlights bespeak its individuality other … sport The frame’s black satin theme is continued to the engine and creating a spectacle to behold and a pleaser for sure. It certainly out in the sea of other sport bikes from here on out will be referred to as OSB) at the local events and wherever the road to take it.

The transmission is x-chain with a wet multi-plate clutch and a gearbox. All of this is housed in an frame, 85.2 inches in with a 54.9 inch 27.2 inches in width, inches in height, with a height of 31.9 inches and a dry of 374 pounds. Ok, now for the brute force It supposedly has less than 100 and about 52 foot-pounds of torque. I believe that and haven’t my first roll on Carolyn’s

Both Carolyn and I had Scorpion systems installed, which up the airways and perhaps added a horse or two. I’m not sure. I feel more horses the brochure boasts.

Of course I weigh about 100 pounds than those who test babies and I’m confident that may something to do with the outcome of tests!

The seat height is lower than the Asian which translates into a friendlier motorcycle, well for of us who may be a little vertically challenged as myself at 5’ 2″. I had to lower mine one which is about 2 to 3 inches than I would have had to an OSB.

The problem with this model was that it with the parking and kick resulting in the parking angle to be non-existent, thus it was sitting perpendicular to the ground when on the stand. That little caused me much fear and to park it and walk off! So off to my Kim’s workshop where the had some metal shaved. helped somewhat, but I still for a slight decline wherever I

Those who are vertically gifted may this bike a tad bit less as the leg room is not as generous as the OSB.

The handlebars are angled in a comfortable for those of us with a slightly reach. I think Triumph this bike with a in mind! The bars are also higher than the OSB, eliminates some of the weight on the and wrists.

Good news for of us who suffer from carpel or riding related numb I suffer from both and have put 2,000 miles on bike in three months and yet to experience a numb thumb. feature also assists the back position being ergonomically correct.

I will however, that I took off for was supposed to be a fairly short of around 100 miles round

It was Bike Week and my riding Kim, and I decided to jaunt to Daytona for the day. Hindsight? My would have been the to ride that day had I known we be making a 350+ mile trip in one day! The ride was fun. We sliced through the roads and rode like our little girls were in

They were. The Speed did not fail to deliver the promised It was quick, agile and extremely It owned the roads, even the construction zones. There is a to shift more frequently in the traffic, but I did not find that an annoyance.

Parking was much easier on the streets and parking lots of during this Bike visit than previous on my cruiser, which is 350 pounds and much bulkier. It eased traffic owning its way around the big men on big machines. We were cute, and cunning! Life was good.

It was a experience.

Then came the home. In order to avoid wildlife (two legs and we opted for the interstate system. It be quicker as well. So we thought. Two outside of Daytona heading on I-95, the traffic was at a standstill and from experience, would be so all the way through Orlando.

The next greeted us with a much traffic-free roadway! What we prepared for though was the long home after a full day of on the very same little that popped us over in no time flat! It quickly evident to both of us that little motorcycles would not be the vehicles for long distance

We were hurting!

Our plan was as we cut through the back roads Orlando back to I-4. at excessive rates of speed limit was 70 mph), made us for our cruisers. Without a windshield, one is more susceptible to being with a large assortment of especially at night when seem to be out in greater numbers during daylight hours.

Without a windshield in that ergonomically correct position I as being so great, the neck extremely tired holding up a helmeted head while down the highway! My neck hurts. I will probably to visit the chiropractor!

This is a bike for the more experienced I would not recommend the first buyer to purchase this It should be reserved for those more riding experience. The are strong and swift and perhaps a too unforgiving for a novice. The steering is with honest feedback the tires.

The center of gravity is and makes it feel like you are on a crème filled éclair. The is firm and needs an aggressive in handling it to its ultimate function. The Four is not at its happiest tooling the city, which requires of shifting in heavier traffic and may not be for those who are lazier in the shifting

Out on the open road or track is story! That is where the fun place.

Roaming out in the open country, up the curves in the mountains, or battling it out on the will prove this beauty’s purpose. It handles ease through the curves and for a smooth lean induced of direction without fear of to meet the other side. In the deeper the lean, the smoother the

Acceleration-wise, speed enthusiasts not be disappointed. Please obey all laws in your state and wear protective gear.

The Four is a … sport that competes nicely its Japanese counterparts. At $6499, it not competes, but beats its competitors.

Oh in addition to my color choice of Jet you can also get it in Racing Yellow and Red.
