I bought the RS as a sports touring bike and is fitted with three factory bags, rear hugger and carbon fiber exhaust. The riding position is perfect, handling excellent, weight is right as a tourer. The pipe is an absolute must.

I've put 8,000 miles on my 2001 Sprint RS over the past 9 months. Since my car died four months ago, its been a daily driver and my only transportation. With the factory rear trunk it's a fantastically flexible machine. Great torque for the real world, not too heavy, nimble in traffic, more top end than any sane person needs on the street. I've taken several 700 mile trips on it and am extremely satisfied. Wish it had self-cancelling turn signals and a ram-air system to let it breathe cooler. Otherwise no faults, would buy another one in a heartbeat.

If that is what ya want, look elsewhere. But if ya want something that has all day comfort and plenty of sport, this is it!!!! Maybe you could call the RS a touring bike for young guys or a sport bike for old guys. I dunno if I like the brakes or the motor the most on this bike. This has got to be the coolest motor ever built. The stock exhaust is the way to go, cuz I can prowl and rip by stealth. Great engine braking, SMOOTH power delivery, and a midrange hit that makes a Doberman on speed look slow. The brakes are powerful and smooth, easy to get the back tire off the ground and make the high school girls giggle. The ergos fit me just fine, I can spend several hours blazing the roads and not get sore. Above legal speeds, this thing is so sweet.............. With fuel injection, a 2 year,unlimited mile warranty and excellent build quality, make purchsing a RS a no brainer. I make no claims to be the next Nicky Haden and the suspension/chassis set up work just fine for the real world. One afternoon, I went from sea level to over 12,000 feet and NO loss in power!!!!! Triumph had their stuff together when this built this bike, period. My friends at Breeze Cycles treat me great!! It is nice to go into a bike shop and they know you by name, not a potential chance to make some coins. I have been riding for over 35 years now, mostly trials bikes and woods bikes. And I have had several street bikes along the way. It is cool to rip past the noisy HD group and they think you are on an oriental sport bike, then soon realize that a Triumph...well, just humbled them. This is the one bike that I will never part with!!!! .....And don't forget to wave at your fellow bikers.

My knowledge of Triumph motorcycles was non-existent until the recent demise of my six month old Honda 919. She was a total loss in an unfortunate crash in West Virginia. I purchased a Honda because quality would not be a question. The 919 offered my nearly crippled old body great comfort and outstanding handling. A fine bike! Never entered my mind not to replace it with the same until I became aware of the Sprint RS and Triumph's fine reputation. As well as, it's something other than Japanese. A real option that is priced just as reasonable. Even with my bad back and myriad of other ailments, this bike is incredibly comfortable with stock riding position. The bars are fine "as is" and the saddle is awesome for the longer rides I do. Handling is neutral and stable. The revised engine is quiet. Power is deceptive with such a linear powerband. The gearbox is smooooth! The gearing is higher, great torque. No so much on-off as my Honda. The bike does not fatigue me. I have ridden it 5 times for a total of just over 1000 miles. Triumph seems to have a reputation for long break-in periods. I guess so with running spec'd Mobil 1. Large fuel tank and 45-50 mpg make for great range. I'm going to buy the saddle bags as I will definitely be touring with this bike. I added the factory painted bellypan and the hugger fender as well as some other do-dads. A truely fine bike with no flaws that I can recognize. My 2002 model was out the door for $7900 in October.
