Triumph Sprint RS

It always Every time I ride a and even though I stop in the of nowhere, some old buffer By -eck lad, a Triumph, are still making those? or is inevitably the opening gambit. Now is all well and good if you are feeling and want to blether, but when the in question is standing between you and the and you are trying to take pictures the sun goes in, it can get a bit wearing.

With a bit of you-ll have your back on and be firing up by the time you get to the . and in 1937 I had a Fanshaw-Brunthorpe 250, by but were a grand bike you

That Triumph exists at all is and that they should be a bike this good only ten years in business is short of a miracle. I guess it take more than a few old to stop me feeling downright of them. Britain as a manufacturer of appliances, 2 wheels or 4, is heading the toilet faster than you can say

And yet here is a genuinely world bike, at a real world with a Union Jack on the All stand and we-ll hum the national

This is the Sprint RS, for my money the bike Triumph have made, and an absolute belter. It is a slicker, sportier version of acclaimed Sprint ST, and both use a version of the 955 injected triple the Daytona. Better yet it-s a and there is something unique a 3 cylinder layout.

In this every competitor is either a four, or a v-twin copying these days. Although can claim to make triples, has got real heritage going for it going back to their own I used to have a K75 BMW, a engine sadly out of production and this Triumph feels and like its big brother.

What a fantastic engine is. I can-t think of an engine a flatter response curve, in power and torque. Open the at almost any revs, in any gear and it like turning on a switch. It is and tractable around town, yet it searing acceleration without the hint of a power band.

It has such hefty reserves of from the 3,000 to 4,000 that you can if you want make progress without resorting to revs. Couple this to pretty close ratios at the top of the 6 box, and a well chosen drive, and you have a real sporting conveyance.

There are bikes from Japan can do some of this too, but why are are all painted up like a teenagers If you are a sensible motorcyclist, why would you to ride around on something looks like a Pokemon on it? Especially in this fabulously dark blue colour, the RS looks serious, it has attitude, but it is I love it.

I would love to see what a edition in British Racing gold wheels, and with no would look like, but I

I had borrowed the bike from the new dealership in Perth, Motorcycle and it took a while getting to being back on a sports again from my more Harley. Cruising up the A9 on a glorious and easily passing traffic may cool, but beware. Scotland-s road has been festooned an outbreak of Gatsos, and some of are hiding behind road

Bah Humbug!

After about an I was getting the feel of the Triumph, and in was getting some real in the brakes which are phenomenal. You need the back brake, and a delicate squeeze on the front will stuff your into the tank. Knew I have had those chips at

By the time I handed it back a brilliant afternoons riding, it like I-d been riding it for A good sign that.

So to make of this bike? consider that it competes the Honda Firestorm, the Suzuki TL and the Ducati 900SS, and indeed it In power, handling and price are remarkably close.

They are all also very bikes from long makers, so to be in the ring with company, and punching hard Triumph can hold it-s high.

But these are only the competitors. I think there is to this than simply it up against the like priced Lets face it, there are no bad bikes out there these so what you eventually choose has to do with feel and emotion and and fashion than simple

The Sprint RS may equate to some of the bikes, but the important point is it doesn-t FEEL like We are talking subjective here, but the has a solid, planted, slightly feel than most of the Jap sports bikes. It-s better nor worse, just In fact it reminds me of some of the sports bikes that BMW it shares a certain solidity, and I that as a compliment.

It may explain why a lot of Triumph riders are pilots too! I would say it feels British, if only were any other British around to compare it with!

I had a few hours with the Sprint RS, but it was than enough to renew my for Triumph as a company, and to end up liking bike a lot. If only you park it without some old appearing and wittering in your ear the you take you helmet off!

thanks to Motorcycle King, for the loan of the test bike.
