    I've had this one for a couple months. I put a quick shifter on it, but not much else. Power is down from the Street Triple I had, but it's light and nimble. Good fit for my old bones.

    What's the tank range and the weight of this bike?

    Not sure on the tank range - I'm still haven't ridden a lot. Advertised weight is 416 lbs - It feels about the same as my old Street Triple.

    Do you miss your ST675R? Would you swap back if you could?

    Yes and no. That bike tried to kill me. I had to be 100% focused on riding all the time. It wasn't very relaxing, although it was fun.

    .....yeahbutt, the siren song of the triple...
    1050 & 2300 both are a fricking NARCOTIC when rolling on the throttle

    I've had several Triumph triples, and ridden several others, so I understand the sentiment.

    Triumph triples are awesome -- proof that the gods are kind. If the Trident had existed when I sold my Tiger 800, I'd have one. I'll be keeping my eye on this machine... and following this thread... as a bike for day rides after She Who Must Be Obeyed takes over the Ducati :D

    Got to demo the Trident at the IMS show in Pennsylvania this weekend. Of 14 bikes that I tried this weekend, the Trident was the flat out best bike I rode, it’s brilliant. I’ve owned an XSR900 for five years, I love that bike more than anything, and the Trident feels like it’s a better version of the 900. It lacks the full hooligan spirit and top end power, but it’s far more useable at street-legal speeds, and far nimbler. It’s more refined, to boot.

    Huge fan, I hold the bike is a huge success.

    My son is now over 12000 km on Trident. That's since spring. :)
    Really loves it. You can tell by mileage :)
