Overall Review

Good cheap bike to have, good run around, nice to ride a british bike, shouln't pay much more than £1500 for a good one.

Strengths

British built, quick through the gears, revs higher than the 900.

Weaknesses

My dad always wants to ride it.

Overall Review

I have a 1995 model which is now 18 years old and still going strong.It's all you need really but perhaps if you want more power say for two up riding then the 900 would be more suitable.If you look around their are some lovely well looked bikes although becomeing rarer as owners seem to hang onto them.The prices are heading upwards too.I would not hesitate to recommend the Trident,they are much underated.

Strengths

The 750 is more nippy than the 900,it's more revy and quicker to turn,idealy suited in town or city.It's good on the open road too with the wind the limiting factor.(I have Givi A210 Screen which is efective).I have the 900 Sprint and i must say i prefer the 750 Trident as it's easier to get on with

Weaknesses

Carbs will gunge up if left standing any length of time (Keep starting engine) Gearbox is clunky fork seals prone to leak Always keep the Battery fully charged and pull in clutch lever when starting (to avoid Sprag clutch problems)

Overall Review

Excellent build quality (compared to Meridan Triumphs) and excellent handling too. Love it!

Strengths

I bought this bike 2nd hand, in bits, as a project, back in 2004. I wanted something to do after work. I was immediately impressed with the build quality. It became a labour of love and I learned a lot, but the best bit was when I got it together and rode it, my goodness why does it have all those gears? It pulls like a train in any gear! Funny enough it was smooth, but not much more than my old T160, but that is good enough. The handling was better, although I don't really push a bike as much as I used to so maybe that should be listed as 'untested'. I love this bike!

Weaknesses

Not many, I dropped it once (minor scratches to the bike) and was embarrassed that I was not strong enough to pick it up on my own. Now either I am getting too old and weak or my old Bonny was lighter. Any real 'cons'? No, none at all really. I am no great judge but this bike is all I will ever need.
