I have a 2001 Honda Valkyrie and wanted something lighter and quicker to compliment the Valk. The big Honda is fast and nimble for a 700 pound cruiser, but you never forget you're on a 700 pound cruiser. I'd been looking at the S3 for a while and waited until I could justify adding a second bike's expenses to my budget. This one was a used model that I bought during the offseason (limited riding season in northern Michigan). Wish I had bought this thing earlier. Torque all over the place, great sounding engine, badass looks. I haven't rode it too fast as it gets pretty windy at 80+ mph--typical naked bike drawback. The seat gets uncomfortable after a while, though that's not too big a deal for me because the Valk is my preferred bike for 100+ mile rides; the S3 usually goes no more than 70 miles. Lots and lots of fun to ride.

I bought my Speed Triple 1 year ago after reading all the reviews available in magazines/ online for naked bikes. I was a little bit afraid of buying it because Triumph is not a big company like Ducati, BMW or any of the big 4 Japaneese, but every paper that I read about it said that it was the best choice in its category. After 1 year with my bike I am the happiest person alive. You can't imagine the power/ torque/speed/acceleration of this machine. On the other hand the upright riding position is comfortable even for a tall person like me. I gave it a 4 just because I would like the foot pegs a little bit lower (I have long legs!). But everything else is just more than what you can expect for a bike like this. I drove a Ducati Monster 820, BMW K1200R, Yamaha Warrior and even a Yamaha R1, but once you ride the Speed Triple you do not want to ride anything else. You just want to return the other bike to your friends and go back to your S3. Belive me. And the price tag is not cheap but is not super expensive either.

The bike is an absolute beast. Nothing extra, just a powerful motor, a seat and two wheels. It is a ton of fun to ride and that is all it needs to do.
