My New Speed Triple R

I have said hello on the Welcome Centre and have been reading allot of interesting post over the last few weeks...great forum! but thought I would drop in properly now I am a speedy owner.

This was delivered today, very happy I am but with weather here I am more likely to float it than ride it for the foreseeable future. 6 miles on the clocks and already looking at mods.

Very nice mate - UK & US guys are lucky re pricing; a new speed R in Australia is $25k (£16300 pounds / $26140USD)

Enjoy all the sexy bits and be sure to keep us updated on mods etc

Interestingly, they are very well priced here in NZ. Standard has lowered slightly to NZ$19,995 and the Speed Triple R starts at NZ$22,995 and $1000 more for the ABS.

R is certainly far better "bang for buck"!

Did your dealer throw in the Triumph 'marinised' accessory pack for riders in SW England? The pack also contains a Type B-4 life preserver (known to our American cousins as a Mae West self-inflating bouyancy aid), a pack of goose fat and a rescue flare for the RNLI.

Improvement I guess - still worrying that we have to pay more than the bloody kiwis

They must get a rural subsidy or similar?

LOL no all the extra bits are parts I ordered, nothing thrown in, though I bought now as got an excellent deal on the price, based on time of year.
