Never had it on a Dyno so all I can say is the 133bhp listed on tech spec... I would guess around 120bhp but your guess is as good as mine.

Feels like the perfect amount of poke to have without electric wizardry, especially for the road.

Adding a full system and Tune ECU software gets them up into the 140's I believe.

I really like her, If I had the coin ETC ETC but a bump is a bump, why you selling trading up or down if its ok to ask as she is show room.
Ive really gotten to like big cc lumpers with an upright riding position and more or less straight bars if that makes any sense like the Ktm 960 there like yours a dual purpose bike
comfi in the town and city and you can blast them out the road then


how much for the other carbon can if you would sell sep

Me too, I always wanted one and it hasn't disappointed.

Yeh, it's very comfortable, when I bought it, I rode it back from Aberdeen in one swift trip as I was late for the boat, and never once was uncomfortable for the couple of hours in it. I had a Street Triple a few years ago and it is just like a Street Triple on steroids, bigger, faster, stronger and just as smooth.

There's a couple of reasons I'm selling, I'm moving to France next year and although I am still considering importing it over there, my interests are shifting a bit... I've always been keen to get into the off road/adv rally scene, there isn't many opportunities here but endless over there so considering getting a 790 ADV R or Yamaha T7 next year to do the Trans Euro Trail.

The Mivv GP Carbon I have up for sale for €200 at the moment. I'm open to offers on it though.

I know the Speed Triple's looks divide opinions but for me its the best looking bike around.
I have drooled on occasion while cleaning it...

If she does, she does... if she doesn't I think i'll be able to justify taking on some debt to keep her along side the other machine. Very special bike and she'd love those Alpine passes

Cheers,

It's a great machine. Most well rounded sports machine in my opinion. Comfortable, well spec'd, perfect amount of power and delivery, enough carbon fibre to make me drool anyway!

The plan now is to move over to France in the new year and get a KTM 790 ADV R or a Yamaha T7 and explore as much of Europe off road as possible.

She'll be missed if she goes but if she stays I can't say I'll be unhappy, will just have to make some alternative financial arrangements and import it into France along with myself!

Lovely bike OP, GLWS. I was looking at one of these last year when I went with the Z in the end.

Price dropped to £6800. Equates to roughly €7600, euro price may fluctuate as the Brits continue to shoot themselves in both feet.

Yeh me too, I think it's just one of those bikes that only a minority have tried and know how good it really is at everything from commute, to track, to touring.
