I am all for brand loyalty, but the '06 Triumph has really set itself apart. Thoughts anyone?

(can't seem to be able to post a pic...)

Your thoughts on a sport 1000?

i don't care for the monsters so i'd definitely go for the triple (but only the new one). as for nakeds, i like the tuono as well.

Brutale 910R is the one.

I like the clean look of the new Monster S2R 1000, and I also like the aggressive, streetfighter style of the Speed Triple. But if we're talking naked bikes, I gotta say- in my opinion, it's all about the Brutale 910r. SICK.

I like the Monster S2R and S4R and Triumph Speed Triple. But, if I was buying another naked bike it would be the new retro 1000 Sport. That's so cool!

well...as a Monster owner....I wouldn't trade it for anything...I do love naked bikes and as cool as the Triple is...the fact remains that it is still a new motor for Triumph and doesn't have long term reliability established like the Duc's do...or seemingly do anyway....also from what I read in Superbike when they did a test of naked bikes...they were all for it except for the fact that due to its weight it has a bit of wallow and softness to it and not quite the responsive brakes that it maybe should have for its balky weight...the Tuono is an awesome machine also...lots of things to consider with naked bikes though....1st...where and how you are going to ride it...2nd...what kind of mods do you think you are going to want to do to it?...because some of the nakeds have very little support out there in the aftermarket for add-ons and mods and what is out there varies greatly in price!

meh ... myself, I like the Triple. I ride with a guy who has one (2001, maybe?) and I like it enough. I haven't had a chance to wring its neck, but if I had to choose between that & a Monster? Well, I already have a Monster and I wouldn't trade it for a Triple, put it that way. (I wouldn't trade it at all, but that's besides the point).

I like the Brutale, too - there's a lot of snot packed into that thing, that's for sure. I'd love to see one up close. The Tuono doesn't do much for me though, especially the latest version of its styling. I'm sure it's chock full o' snot; I beat upon a race-prepped Mille a while ago and that was a serious trouble-maker then. But the Tuono's styling is losing points with me lately.

However, I'm interested to see/hear/ride Moto Morini's new Coraso 1200


Which, now that I look at it again, really looks like the bastard child of a Monster and a Speed Triple raised by a Tuono. Only with a bigger engine than the three of them ...

from what I read in Superbike when they did a test of naked bikes...they were all for it except for the fact that due to its weight it has a bit of wallow and softness to it and not quite the responsive brakes that it maybe should have for its balky weight...
found the back issue sitting here at my desk....it was Superbike August 2005
they compared the Speed Triple 1050 to the Kawasaki Z1000,the Brutale 750,and the SuperDuke990......notice that the Monster wasn't included in the party?....or the Brutale 910?....or the Tuono?(though they do make small reference to the Tuono)....just as an FYI

I've ridden both and although the Speed 3 is a nice bike, it felt more like an appliance to me. It's going to be cheaper to buy and cheaper to own no doubt, but I'd recommend spending some time riding both before buying. The Tuono is also very nice as is the Brutale 910, although I've only ridden the 750. I've owned Triumphs and had a deposit on a new Triumph Sprint ST last year but changed my mind and decided to go for an ST4s instead. I always wanted a Ducati and after one year and 10K miles I've never once wished I had the Sprint.

I don't own either, but to me the Speed Triple looks odd. Too much junk in the trunk. Kind of like something bit the end of it off and left the refrigerator. The same look as a Buell, which I hate. But I like the Triumph way better than a Buell. The Bruntali is nice except for the slanted headlight. A friend of mine has the S4R, its sweet, especially after he put a full system on it and got rid of that blatter of a catalictic bulge under the bike. Cleaned it up really nice. My vote is the S4R, especially the model with the Testrasetta motor.
