Overall Review

Very happy with the bike - it fulfills all my motorcycling needs. Can't claim bragging rights on the electronics or horsepower though!

Strengths

- Does just about everything well - Stellar motor that's strong from low revs - Sporty handling that also offers comfort for longer rides - Understatedly aggressive looks - High quality finish - Near perfect fueling provides great control and overcomes absence of electronic rider aids - Decent fuel economy for the performance

Weaknesses

- Gearbox is prehistorically clunky - Triumph-recommended suspension settings and tire pressures are way too hard for single rider use on normal roads. Needs professional suspension set up to get the most out of the Ohlins - Feels a bit lardy compared to the new crop of nakeds - Leg to peg distance is a bit cramped - ABS is good to have, would be even better if it came with a slipper clutch and quickshifter
