Best Sounding Triple in the World?

I think so.

No.. Street Triples sound better. You lack that fire breathing gargle sound.

Best sounding triple? A 180 degree Laverda.

Came here expecting Laverda, was not disappointed.

Triumphs are lovely in their own right, but for me the Laverdas win the audio stakes, every time.

Hmmm.

A bike revving in the garage vs. a bike running some curves.

Unfair.

So far I vote Triumph.

I like the way my FJ-09 sounds, even with the stock exhaust.

That Triumph does sound sweet though..

I'd take a 955 over the 1050, moreso with airbox mods.

The 675 is a close one, mainly on intake howl.

Without doubt, the 180 Laverda.

I've compared them. An MV 800 to my Street. streety sounded better. However an MV 800 motor sounds sexy and throws waaaaaaaaaay more power above 9k..

I've owned five Triumph triples - One T150 from the Meriden era and four Hinckleys, but the one that really made the hair on your neck stand up was my Laverda Jota 180, so another vote for that clutch cable eating bulb destroyer!

Oh, and a quick shout out for the Kawasaki and Suzuki two stroke triples with 'spannies fitted....
