Triumph Speed Triple 955i

Picture taken 2019



Got this new from Metropolis Motorcycles in London new in September 2000, so nearly 20 years old now.

Without doubt one of my favorite bikes of all time.

It's not the quickest, but it's quick enough with about 120bhp and can do just about everything you need it to.

Bike had the genuine Triumph high level can fitted from new and engine mapped to match.

The engine and exhaust tone are unmistakably triple.

To date I've not had any real trouble with the machine. I'd had some trouble with batteries early on, but it's fine with Motobatt's.

Fitted a Rhencullen undertray, which was colour matched to the roulette green. Makes the bike a lot cleaner looking at the back as well as making it easier to work on the rear end of the machine.
