Well, as of last night my Harley finally sold. 17 days on the market wasn't too bad, (I tried last year too) and I got what I wanted for it. Now comes the Speed Triple. I am looking for an 02-04 S3. Just my luck our local Stealership has two for sale and reasonably priced. The check for the Big Pig clears on Monday.

I am holding out for Steveomerkx, cuz if I remember right he is in the same boat with his Harley for sale. Come on Triple Gods, one more time for Steve-o.

Thanks for the support Fellas
Spanky
S3 Coming soon

It is Triple_Riders fault, for putting the S3 bug in me. Dang Hoolies

congrats, triumph only sold about 500 S3's last year so this is a pretty obscure group (hence the madness around here). it's practically a one-off out of the box!

congrats! i remember when i took my first spin on speedy after riding a bonneville. took a little while to realize i could lean over in turns. im still learning and slowly pushing its capabilities. im just glad i learned how great this bike is on only my 2nd bike. no time wasted on other junk.

Just my opinion, but I would go with a 05-07. Personally I think triumph really nailed the design of the 05+ models, while the 04 -models were just ok. I also think they fixed some issues with the newer model, and you just can't beat the 1050 BIKE engine of the year. Spend a bit more, you won't regret it. And when you go to sell it , it won't be TWO models old.

Does anyone know the run numbers for 2004? I would be interested not only in how many were made/sold but how many special edition fast ones were made (All Black means Faster!!).

Yep way more than 500. The S3 is Triumphs best seller. There bonkers for it over seas. Just not as much in the USA yet.
