Default 2012 Triumph Speed Triple R

Asking/Offering Price: $7950
Phone Number : 785-761-5505
Location: Fort Worth, TX, but I will be back home for Thanksgiving in a couple weeks and could transport the bike when I come if needed.
Name: Andrew
Item Description: 2012 Triumph Speed Triple R
Mileage: 5620
Title Status: Clean, has a Lein through Penfed.

Posting up my Speed Triple R, I picked the bike up a little over a year ago from the original owner and have put ~2k miles on it. Absolutely love the bike, but have my eye on something new and it has to go.

5620 miles, may go up a little as the weather is about perfect riding currently.

Bike has:
• Triumph Bar End Mirrors
• Triumph aluminum front and rear brake reservoirs
• Color matched rear cowl cover
• Almost New Metzler M7RR Tires (~600 miles on them of non-spirited riding, still look new)

Oil was just changed with Triumph recommended Castrol 4T synthetic and a Triumph brand oil filter.

The 2012 R model comes with the Brembo monoblock front brakes, along with Ohlins suspension and lots of awesome looking carbon fiber bits. The '12 model also comes with the PVM Forged wheels (super lightweight and look great), which only came on the '12 & '13 R models due to being costly to produce. Pearl white color is beautiful in the light, and the red and carbon fiber accents it perfectly.

Located in Fort Worth, TX. Asking $7950, no trades. Bike has a loan, so I would have to pay off and have title released to purchaser, typical deal.

Contact Andrew at 785-761-5505

I'm sure Cycle World could tell you, but can safely say I haven't experienced it myself.

Not very high compared to super sport. IIRc it's like 140 or 150. It's not geared for top speed, it's geared for hooning and putting a big shit eating grin on your face

Super clean bike, man! These and the streets look amazing in white. GLWS

Yeah, I think from articles I read they run out of steam at ~150ish due to aerodynamics.

Honestly, it is such an amazing powerband and torque curve, I'll probably regret getting rid of it. Between the suspension and brakes, and the super usable power/torque curve, it's so easy to ride spirited and have fun on while being a gear high and kinda lugging it around. It's nice to have fun and not have to be even remotely wrapping it out.

Only reason I'm selling it is Kawasaki announcing the Z900RS, and it's perfect to me. My dad has his '73 Z1 he bought new still, and that bike is such a great tribute in the root beer and orange, I have to have one.

Buyer beware: I went from a Street Triple to a Daytona and I was DEAD SET that I was going to get a Triumph Thruxton. Absolutely in-fucking-love with the bike...

...until I rode it. Coming off the perfection that is a Triumph sports bike and going to a modern-retro is really hard. Clunky, heavy, ugh. It was one of the biggest letdowns in my entire automotive history; no joke. I brought money to buy that thing that day and after test riding it, I tossed the keys at the sales guy, apologized for wasting his time, and haven't looked back.

That said, the Z900RS looks absolutely fantastic and the suspension/frame architecture is more modern than the Thrux. You might want to ride one before dedicating yourself though, is all I'm saying.

The nice thing about the Z900RS is that it is based off of their Z900 with some tweaks. I think Triumph has nailed the retro look, but had done so with too much of the retro power and suspension, in my opinion. Otherwise I'd have had a Bonneville or Thruxton by now.

Z900RS makes great power, has a much more usable seat for 2-up, and dat root beer and orange tho.
