Unless you've changed your gearing I find that hard to believe. Based on the stock gearing of a Daytona 600, if that is what you are referring to, close to 130 in 4th, yes, but not 3rd.

Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.

Per MC News comparison test between the '09 Speed Triple and Buell XB12S :

"The Speed Triple posts a 10.82 quarter-mile @ 125.01 mph ...... Top speed in both cases is a matter of gearing, as their rev limiters prevent anything faster. The Triumph reached a maximum velocity of 143.3 mph"

Of course those are bone stock bikes. Some of us have (cough) slightly (cough cough) modified bikes

Your sig says Daytona 600 and you are in the street triple forum with a speed triple gearing post-and posted about problems keeping the front down under 3500 rpm and 1/4 WOT?????

If it ain't broke, fiddle with it till it is!
I used to be young and foolish, I'm not young any more!

If you get the Ducati, watch out for potholes, and be prepared to wait weeks for parts (i.e. new front wheel)

The Street Triple and the 796 Monster are more comparable than the 848 Streetfighter and the Street Triple blows the doors off it ( if it had doors) . The 848 Streetfighter and the Speed Triple R are more toe to toe . And the SPD3R is better IMO .

But I love the sound of a Duc . Love it .

The Street Triple R and 848 Street fighter are better matched as far as weight, size, handling, and performance. The Monster 796 isn't even in the same room.
