More ammunition to convince Triumph the bloody brakes are faulty. I hope Triumph are listening!!!

Quote from BikeTestUSA.com


"Our 2006 bike exhibited a couple of foibles that are said to be remedied in the '07 models...

...The other problem we had with our test bike was a front brake lever that, despite what appears to be top-notch components like Nissin radial-mount calipers on 320mm rotors actuated through braided brake lines, require a ridiculous amount of lever travel before strong power is delivered. Triumph reportedly has a fix in the works.

"The front brakes on the Triumph were maybe the mushiest units I have ever tried," Becklin lambastes. "They would eventually bite but by that time the lever was on your fingers and your fright meter was typically on overload.""
